On the other hand, I quite like the physicality of it. There was something quite satisfying about making something. I felt, if not like a craftsman, then at least a sense of pride, even vindication, at getting through the 17-step instruction manual and producing desks with workable drawers and swivel chairs which didn't propel the girls across the living room.

Spent the evening assembling desks and swivel chairs for the girls. On the one hand I resent the fact that not only do you have to pay for the furniture but you also have to spend three hours putting it together. If I bought a car, would I have to assemble it? Life is becoming increasingly flat-packed.
