Boo Hoo

I have severe bruising at the moment from kicking myself. Hard.

There I was Thursday lunch time scouring Gumtree for the last few minutes before I knuckled back down to it, and what should I find but this incredible original wall unit listed. Best bit, it was going for free. Yep, that's right FREE. And to put the icing on the cake, the owner had already disassembled it and had it neatly stacked ready for collection.

The ad was fresh, just listed. I was just about to pick up the phone and put dibs on it, when I had to head downstairs for a meeting. Damn it all to hell and back. And sadly an hour or two later, it was gone. Oh this would have been splendid in the Splendour. But I guess it was not to be. Boo hoo.

So how has your week been? Brilliant, I hope. And thanks a lot for making The Diversion Project part of it. As always, I'm very glad that you do!

And big thanks this week to....

Oh no, that's bad luck. Boy, work and work meetings have a lot to answer for!

Boo hoo indeed, but at least I can confirm that it wasn't me who took it. I just wouldn't have done that to you.

Maybe it was one of your blog fans who plans to turn up at your door with it and surprise you...?

That was an amazing wall unit. What a shame. You poor thing, I can completely feel your pain.

(Maybe the original 'taker' falls through?)
