Before you all panic and rush out to buy me a Get Well Soon card, there is no need – although you may wish to send me a gift voucher for IKEA…

The front room table was the unfortunate one to suffer a broken limb. Sadly, while both my fractured legs were repaired by some very clever surgeons, there is less hope for the poor table.

Still, it’s not the first table to have been injured…

Alas, it looks like our table will suffer the same fate as a racehorse, when it breaks a leg. Although, we won’t be erecting a white tent around it’s stricken body and unlocking the shotgun cabinet.

The table will, however, be killed and disposed of – most likely at the local recycling centre. For anyone born before the year 2012, this is more commonly known as ‘the tip’.

Some builders have even been known to confuse the place with a layby on the A36 – a mistake anyone could make, at least according to their lawyers.

Anyway, our table is buggered, useless, kaput. The leg has been dodgy for months, but finally gave up on Saturday evening, when Claire was moving the table.

Her scream of shock, along with the huge crash, as the table and what it was once holding, came tumbling to the floor, caused me to immediately fear that she had been badly hurt.

Luckily, besides being shaken by the ordeal, Claire was fine. Considering that either one of us could have suffered a nasty injury – or even tragedy, had Roman been out of his run and nearby – I count ourselves lucky.

Even my archaic laptop, which was one of the things to crash to the floor, survived. There is an argument for this being a bad thing, considering that I’m looking for an excuse to buy a new one. It lives to anger me another day.

What remains of the table, will have to do for now – considering it’s going to be difficult to find a new one for sale at the moment; yet alone get it delivered and somebody to help us build the thing!

There are no photos of our damaged furniture, because they would look rather pathetic. Instead, here are some pictures of some properly messed up tables!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
