52 Week Project : Wk 23


Self snapped this week as Magoo and I entered the holy grail of Ikea.
In full view of the general public.

Luckily Magoo hasn't quite realised that there should be an element of shame associated with his curious "Why you doin' camera, Mum?"

I love a trip to Ikea
- for nothing
(which translates to a minimum of napkins and some useful/pretty little thing)
or for something
 (which translates to a whole room overhaul, overloaded car and explanation to Hubby).

I was disciplined this time -
 (2 plates, 1 block of chocolate, 0 napkins and a fantastic catch up with a bestie),
but I intend to take my trusty pack-horse Hubby back before the week's end.

One whiff of swedish meatballs and he'll be flatpack toting putty in my hands!

Linking with My Mummy Daze and Fi's 52 Week Project.

Oh how I adore Ikea! Very pleased we live 500km from our nearest one, or my bank account would be looking very sick.
Great pic.

I love me a day out at IKEA. So glad your hubby can be bribed with meatballs, even with the promise of me dressing up as a Swedish maid and serving my own version of meaty balls I would ot be able to convince him to go to IKEA with me. Now if I offered him a week away on a golfing trip, that would be a different story, but that wouldn't work as who would put all the flat packs together. Xx

Ikea rocks.... in that "I'm sure I only went for a set of plastic bowls and somehow walked out with a push-palette laden to the roof with flat-pack shelving units. its a shameless black hole, is Ikea..... thats why we love it.

I love Ikea too - and also always come out with napkins. Think I'd be scared to take Ollie though!
