Today was a massive day! It may seem so trivial but to me it was MASSIVE! I finally went to IKEA. 5 hours of pretty much being in heaven. I felt like a kid in a sweet shop. Lighting, soft furnishings, kitchenware and meatballs! I felt free today. Free to make my own choices about what to buy, how much to spend, how I want my new home looking. It was liberating. For a long time I have avoided going places I haven’t been, if I know there is a system to adhere to. For instance I love sushi but have never gone to a sushi place to eat because I don’t know what to do with the conveyer belt thingymajig and it gives me the actual fear. I don’t know why asking someone to explain it to me is so terrifying but it is 🙈🤣
Luckily today I was with someone who had been before and knew about the writing down system and collecting the big items at the end….thanks Pal!
It was everything I had hoped for and more. Following the arrows through a treasure trove of inspiration to be met at the end with a £700 bill…..but every penny was carefully spent with thought.
I didn’t get carried away for once. Each item has a use and a need. A day away with great banter, great shopping and a transit van was just perfection.
The only downside is that I now have 3 chests of drawers, a side unit, 8 storage cubes , and a shelving unit to build.
Anyone got a screwdriver?
Much Love xx
