    Default Christmas Assembly thread

    I thought this might be a little fun....
    What presents-from Santa or otherwise do you have that you will need to assemble for Christmas morning?
    What time frame do you expect it to take? And then, once it's done- come back and put how long it ACTUALLY took.
    I'll start:
    A 13' trampoline- book says 1.5 hrs, I'm expecting 2.
    A bike- book says 1, I'm expecting close to that as dh is doing it.
    Now your turn...

    Nothing!

    Well, unless you count getting out the Wii sensor and controls to use with the WiiU as she's getting some Wii games for Christmas and the old Wii is hidden away and not set up at hte moment (she can use them on a the WiiU). I can do that any time beforehand though, and it shouldn't be hard... and even then, it will be a task given to DP. lol.

    We're past the "setting up stuff," stage thankfully.

    A few years ago I had drunk DP and his drunk mate (after a Christmas Party) setting up a 14' trampoline at around midnight Christmas Eve... lol. They put the springs on wrong... and hard to start again. lol. Idiots.

    Last year we were away Christmas night so my brother in law and his father had to come to our place to set up the swing set for Santa. They were still going at 1am when we got home and had to take over as they still had to go back home and set up a trampoline and basket ball ring there! Needless to say we owe them big time, and have skipped the big presents this year lol

    Good luck ladies and gents!

    This is bringing back memories of the Barbie house incident of '99.....

    Also quick reminder (after working Boxing Day at Woolworths for 5 years) make sure you've bought batteries and that you've bought the right type of batteries. The amount of people either frantically buying them or frantically swapping them was ridiculous

    Mines done..a smart trike and it took DH under an hour. I made sure he did it before he went back to work so I wouldn't have to try and figure it out!!
