The trouble is everywhere else is floor to ceiling chaos with everything crammed
in here and there. Still it has to get worse before it can get better.

Well I think that is what they say, off to start again today now.

Sempertex corner out in the garden.

A couple of things were a bit of a challenge today,
the new storage boxes have to be fitted from the left and we started from the right.

Then trying to fit the last two top right was tricky, we had to take out all the top row and assemble
on the floor and lift them all into place as there was not enough height to clip the boxes together.

Fitted more insulation and then started to fill the boxes up.
It's surprising how long it takes to get the bags out of one box and into the new ones.

The cardboard box row is temp as we did not order enough of one size of the new boxes and
we have to be able to pick orders again on Monday so the warehouse has to be semi straight.

I cut out some wood to sit on top so we can put excess stock, boxes etc etc.
Trying to fill the whole space.

Yesterday was a drive up to the local rubbish tip to get rid of all the cardboard boxes.
The car was full up with them. Then it was a little painting getting ready to cover
window two around the side and then taking the cupboards down.

I fitted the insulation behind the cupboards yesterday and then started to cover up the
second window as well. Had to move half of the side boxes to get to it though.

Off to finish now as we are unable to get to half the picking boxes for orders due to the chaos.

Last night Zakh came around and we moved the balloons on the boxes as I was
getting muddled up and picking from the bin lower than I was meant too.

We decided to put the coloured balloon in the centre of the box and Zakh came up with the idea to
put them into a bow so it stayed in the centre of the correct box...........I thought that was a good idea.

Lyn has been busy numbering the boxes this morning while I was painting the inside
of the door and putting insulation above the door as well.

Now off to fit the hardboard and insulation back onto the glass section of the door to stop the sunlight coming in.

Well that has put a spanner in the works, the company we are buying the storage boxes from
get in touch to say they will now be delivered on Monday.

I think I wont say anymore at the moment, it's not often I get annoyed.

The storage boxes turned up this morning. Two large pallets.
Once inside there was not a lot of room to move about.

So we made a start.
We had to move the small old yellow picking boxes out the way before we started.

New boxes waiting to go into the warehouse, yes I know it's a shed  ;)

Then we had to move the other half of the yellow boxes over as well.
It was like working on a puzzle trying to get things to fit.

The new boxes going in.

Our house, still boxes everywhere, wondering at the moment if we have ordered too many.

Clearing the side wall out and fitting some extra insulation.
It was a little slow yesterday trying to keep the orders going out and changing things about.
I did not expect to add extra insulation down the side but the new boxes were 5cm deeper.

And it all takes time.
