I’d pity you if you DIDN’T have an Ikea nearby :-P

The largest Ikea in the southern hemisphere opened a few minutes from me just before Christmas. My husband went last Saturday and in defence of the budget etc, I had to go with him. I kept the purchases down to some coathangers, a peg bag and two metal storage tins, all of which could have been bought at the local shoppng centre. And the parking was a nightmare too.

Shalom,
Jan

If you saw the interior of our home, you would know that we make regular pilgrimages to the Swedish furniture shrine. There is no stronger test of a marriage than trying to assemble IKEA furniture with your spouse. :^

I’m such a Ikea junkie that I’m actually, literally, afraid to go in. To make matters worse, Ikea built their largest store in North America just thirty minutes from my home. It’s like their trying to kill me, or at least my bank account.

I don’t see the problem with Ikea…… in fact I think they are great, with loads of brill stuff…. of course I’m someone who loves to take things to pieces and build things…… so what can I say..??
