Round and round Ikea
De plus en plus perdu
One step, two step...
The EXIT! Thank God. Phew!
I've been doing the rounds in Ikea. Round and round and round and, where is that damned exit, anyway?! Eventually found it through Kidstuff, but got diverted via the café for a supper of herring bits and meatballs. Oh, I know how to live it up...!
I was after more bookshelves and one or two exciting bits, plus staking out the mezzanine beds for an imminent, adolescent (before anyone starts perking up about babes...!) addition to the household. I have tried to add a touch of elegant living to the Red House with atmospheric lamps - just a small start, but what with Ulysse and young boys, really, there's no point. It all just gets accidently broken, continually moved about, or so misplaced that I've given up. We'll just keep it simple from now on.
So, elegance being out, I went for useful herb shelves, a loo brush in red plastic and a long mirror. Woah, last of the big spenders eh?? Oh and one of those halogen light sets they have on wires, 3 for 9.90Eur - best bargain in the whole place. That's to light up my new painting, a stunning Rauscher-Kennedy which does a brilliant job enhancing the taste and classiness of my otherwise humble abode...
Made it out without bankrupting either myself or J, and realising that my Ikea card was completely useless. I thought it shaved 10% off the total. Huh, some hope! Needed a G&T to recover from all the excitement.
FYI, my herb pot shelves have cleared up a mucky corner beautifully.
Tonight they've forecast a tornado... so hold on to your hats!
