The next major and heart stopping issue was measurement. As I'd had to use for economy old material recycled for much of the structure there were variations between the four units and even between one unit internally with variations which seemed unlikely but I measured several times then decided that I should get a laser measure . The only people who actually had one nearby were B&Q so looked up the make and price and checked stock on the net then went down, seemed all too easy , right rack 'measuring' right price matched the net, right make - once home and bewildered how it worked it dawned on my I'd got a laser level not a measure.
Back to B&Q, swapping it was almost pleasantly easy (ish) . Then back home, again - it was getting tedious. Not the easiest thing in the world to measure from floor to ceiling with shelved fitted and the height, needed step ladders and then paper on the bottom track as it could be measuring either the top or bottom of the moulding. The measurements when believable were near my manual efforts although I must say given that it is a laser product and many safety concerns the instruction / safety notes were microscopic and I had to hunt them down on the net and enlarge by 500% to read them which is pretty pathetic and probably illegal. Anyway I've come up with some sizes and will get a couple done and review fit functionality etc before getting the rest, they take 6 working days but won't order until back from Indonesia, we leave a week Saturday.
Tomorrow Many has MRI scan at Macclesfield hospital following the growth found on her lung which is believed to be old and benign but they are monitoring it. Then down to Hampshire and if weather and time permit a film stop en route somewhere then family event Sunday, perhaps Southampton docks film Monday on way home. Next blog will be Sunday night. I've loaded a few DVDs on for digital download still a lot more to catch up. I did get some photos filed last night. This afternoon we were at the RNCM launch of new term, with 3 days rehearsal all the new intake of students were either in orchestra or chorus of G&S Pirates of Penzance preceded by discussion of new year themes by management and students. Quiet life retirement-never.
