Sofa not so good

Sofa not so good

On Friday Ross from the King’s Lynn News Centre and I set about taking my old, very large and very heavy sofa as it turned out to the tip on Saddlebow.  Or at least that was the plan! 

Ross very kindly agreed to help me with the task in hand, OK I asked him about two hours before we needed to go but it was at the end of our workday and had we left KLFM on time what was about to happen could have been avoided.

Problem number 1

Ross was waiting for an email, he said it was important and we had to wait at least another 30 minutes before we could leave

Problem number 2

There had been an accident at Gayton Road surgery which slowed traffic in the centre of Lynn, this added about 30 mins to the journey

Problem number 3

I’d left my keys at home and a trip to the QE to meet my wife was needed to gain access to the garage, wasting more time

Problem number 4

The sofa was too large to fit in the van, rope and string was needed to be found, after knocking on several neighbours door this was achieved. We secured the vans and the door and continued our journey.

Problem number 5

On route to the tip Ross asked what time the tip closed, I believed it to be 4:30pm, turns out it was 4pm!  We turned around unloaded and could only laugh or cry!

 

Attempt number two takes places today.
