More Manly Tasks

Well, our new couch FINALLY came in. Don't order things from J.C. Penney...for some reason they didn't complete my order when I ordered my sofa mid-November (though I did have a confirmation number??), so it took forever for me to actually get my sofa, and you should have heard the train wreck of a woman I talked to on the phone about the situation. Seriously, I think she was trying to give me psychic readings over the phone. She would ask me a personal questions (like, "do you have kids?", "are you newly married?", questions about what I looked like, etc) during the conversation we had, where I was simply trying to figure out the status of my order...then, I called back to talk to another representative (because I was nervous that something weird happened with the previous lady...), and she was just rude. It wasn't really a good experience. 

But, I'm pretty happy with my new sofa. I mean, it's really plain, but it's nice to have something fluffier to sit on, and something that actually comes up to my neck, rather than mid-back (NOT comfortable, Ikea.) I still need to finish fixing the slipcovers ...straighten them out a bit, and zip up the back, which will require a bit of Jordan's help. 

HOWEVER, I managed to move the old couch out of the room and assemble the new one all by myself. Never underestimate my strength with furniture when I am determined (to his defense, Jordan was out coaching :) ).

  1. Your couch looks comfy! I'm glad to see your family room in the day time. I was wondering with the color of the walls if it made the room too dark. Is that the only window in the room?

  2. Well, the photos never do the color justice...It's actually not that dark...there are two windows ..another on the right side of the room. I have the white curtains to try and deflect the light a bit!!

  15. Concrete barrier blocks or jersey barriers are a simple and effective way to secure your empty premises against unwelcome visits from trespassers, vandals, fly tippers and travellers. Concrete security barriers may be placed across the access to a property, or around the perimeter to block vehicular access. We provide concrete sleepers in either 1.5m, 2.5m or 3m lengths, which can be bolted together with our state of the art interlocking system to create a virtually impenetrable concrete barrier.

    Temporary concrete road barriers are a useful tool in traffic management, to safely control traffic flows. Concrete safety barriers are a common sight in car parks, used to define entry and exit lanes and to protect traffic from straying into oncoming lanes. Concrete road barriers may be used to secure building sites and road works, protecting both the passing public and workforce within.

    The integral properties of concrete barricades make them the safety barrier of choice in a number of scenarios. The immense weight of a concrete step barrier can be used in earth retention to safely prevent landslides. Concrete safety barriers can provide a solid barrier around water hazards or other dangerous areas.

    As concrete barrier suppliers, SafeSite Facilities are able to deploy concrete security blocks in a matter of hours, to ensure your site remains safe and protected. Our concrete barriers may be personalised with your company logo to maintain a strong presence, or enhanced with the addition of anti climb fencing for additional security.

    For all your concrete block and jersey barrier requirements call SafeSite Facilities today.
