15 Aug 2008 Friday But-ing up

We turn up at the nearest “But” (pronounced boot) furniture / electrical emporium just outside the town.
We find a shop person and start showing him the things we wish to buy. It is ten minutes before closing time for lunch so he will not be able to help us until after they re-open. You can just see that happening in the UK when you try to spend approx £2k.
We return after lunch and after about 90 minutes the paperwork is completed. We drive the car round the back to take the TV and computer monitor home. The first delivery date of the following week soon becomes 26 Aug. 7 days after the rest of the furniture is due to arrive from the UK. So the three quarter sized fold down guest bed will not rescue us from sleeping on the floor after all.
