Laminate flooring blues

Okay, so you go into the DIY shop really excited cos you're going to lay yourself a gorgeous new laminate floor in your guest room.

It costs you an absolute fortune for five packs but that's okay cos you're going to be proud to say you did it yourself.

You buy all the things that go with it, that you've NEVER heard of and wonder what they could all possibly be for.

You come home, have a nice cuppa while you read up on the instructions so that you know EXACTLY what you're doing.

Check that you have all the right pieces and you know where everything goes.

You tire yourself out running up and downstairs with the packs of boards, which seem to get heavier with each trip upstairs.

You come to click the boards together and then....... NO CLICK.

They wont click together, they don't even want to.

How frustrating!!!

Been trying to get it right for two days luck.

Think I should've stuck to carpet.
