And so the Rayburn is in place!
And it took two men to shift it,
although there were supposed to be two more, but they were still in bed,
so their Dad fetched up with his friend,
arriving just as Lester and our builder were lifting the Rayburn off the trolley,
so at least there was some help at the end.
No floor tiles were broken.
The trolley worked fantastically well.
The Rayburn remained intact and undamaged throughout.
The only mild problem was me,
because I couldn't stop dithering around,
trying to be of help,
but, in truth, probably getting in the way!
The chimney pipes are now being put in,
and it is up through the roof today or tomorrow,
depending whether it rains or not.
The Rayburn has a presence in the kitchen already.
It is small in comparison to the Smeg range cooker,
but it oozes a sort of power.
Long way off to having it working though,
but at least the hallway is clear,
and the Rayburn is in its forever place,
and I am relieved that all went well.
Meanwhile, I do not mess my head up with wondering about what kitchen cupboards to buy,
whether to have free standing or fixed units,
shelves or cupboards,
I find my head focussing on where to put my chair
so I can have a warm up when the Rayburn is finally operational!
