Shopping Solo

Over the weekend we got the great idea to update our Lounge room....firstly we tried moving furniture from around our home....this resulted in a lot of moving and a less than ideal situation.
Next up we reached for the IKEA catalogue......

HMMMM dangerous

So after  lots of researching and measuring we had a new game plan......
...this game plan involved me volunteering to head to IKEA this morning...
unable to enlist any shopping buddies at such late notice I ventured on my own...... would  be fine...I had the clear shopping list and knew exactly what I was getting.....
so only three calls to my hubbie at work - just to clarify! I finally enlisted the help of  a lovely salesperson to help me with the heaviest load I have have ever purchased there.

Some quick mental picturing of how I was going to load it all in the car, I talked myself into having it delivered....hmmm I think if I had taken a deep breath I could have managed  and saved on the cost but not the way I went.

I learnt something today .
that as much as I love Ikea and the ease at which you can spend money there and the inspiration that you can come away with......

It is no fun to be there on a mission by yourself!
No -one to chatter too, discuss colours,shape, form or function with 
and no-one to encourage you to try and get it all in the car.

  1. Oooooooh Ikea!!
    Oh what a shame you had to go alone. I would have gone for the ride - Neil turned out to be home today. But I got a 2 hour nap in and spent the day being lazy instead.
    Excited to see what you do with it!!


Thanks for stopping by and saying Hi....I love having your support. I will do my best to pop back to you and say hi. xx
