Ikea

I’m not sure why I get excited about going to Ikea – the anticipation is greater than the actuality, and that includes giving birth.

We went tonight, got lost as usual trying to find it in Milton Keynes, got there with me hyperventilating as we ‘only’ had 2 and a half hours to get round it. In the end we left at 9:30pm still speaking, so that must be a record on many counts.
We were on a hunt for the boys fleapit tip, it’s a right royal mess and I don’t help things by not helping them tidy up. It doesn’t help to have the worlds most untidy 5 year old sharing with a lego obsessed 8 year old.
So we went looking for suitable storage…

The CD tower is for their DVD’s and CD’s – Munch said and I quote “Does that mean we can have a tv in our bedroom now? we are getting bigger”, this was batted down with a swift and decisive “Ask you Daddy” by me.

We also bought some wire drawer storage for our collapsed bedroom wardrobe inners – we’ve been living in such a pigsty for months because we have too much stuff and not enough storage. It’s got to be the crappest design of house ever or we are total junk hounds.

So Hubby has managed to build all the bits today and I am left reeling with shock, he normally takes his sweet time over things.

in other news, I have ordered a Dell Laptop for my birthday. Of course it’s a total extravagance and there are bells and wireless whistles that need to be bought too, but it means I can web ferret downstairs and not fight with the kids over access to the main pc upstairs. Hubby said he’ll use it too even though it’ll be green!

    Am hoping Kirk is as motivated as your DH tomorrow as I have 35 boxes to open and assemble from Ikea. It’s only 2 wardrobes and a desk but they do like to package things in multiple boxes!
