Busy, busy, busy

Taking tomorrow off work and doing shopping instead.

Three main stops on my to-do list.

Firstly is Forty Winks for a new bed. I'm going to buy a new mattress and bed frame. The bed frame I want is the Clarecraft Jarrah Como. I also want some more of the set, but my bedroom isn't really big enough with the fireplace (that we're not actually allowed to use) in it, so I'm not going to spend money yet on things I can't really use.

As a result, the second stop is Ikea. Plan is to pick up the Malm Chest of 6 Drawers which is a little bit narrower than the Como set equivalent, plus a Stave mirror for above the drawers, and a Malm Chest of 2 Drawers for a bedside table, all in birch veneer.

Final stop is the National Storage at Brunswick to organise a storage unit so I can reorganise my life.

Since I'm going to be running around all over the place, I'm hiring a car from Flexicar for the day. Well, actually I'm hiring it from 7:00pm tonight till 7:00pm tomorrow evening. The car I've booked is a Subaru Forrester, so it should have enough room to be able to get all the Ikea stuff home so I don't have to pay for delivery.

The major thing for tomorrow is the new bed, because I am currently in a great deal of pain, and I think that I'm going to stay that way until my bed is replaced. I doubt very much whether the bed will be ready in less than a week, but I think I can cope with the waiting until then.

So, on the list of things for tonight is a visit to Kmart to pick up some more storage boxes, and then trying to empty my room as much as possible so I've got the room to build the stuff from Ikea tomorrow. I'm probably going to pack a lot of the boxes tonight and put them in the car, and visit the storage place first thing tomorrow.

I've made a decision and I'm acting on it. I must be ill. :)

Ooooh nice setting! If you need a hand, if it wont all fit in the Forester, give me a yell and I can try to fit the leftovers in my Impreza hatch - after work hours though :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
