After it being delivered minus a part we had to wait a week for said part to be delivered .... only for Yodel to misplace the part! ... we then orchastrated a one-man sit down protest at the Yodel depot in Selby while they checked their cctv ... we finally got it lit around 4pm on Friday!

Looks fab!x😊

About time...

Yeah! Well done - looks lovely and cosy!

Oooooo lovely 👍🏼👍🏼
