A quirky coincedence?
Yesterday we ‘had to’ visit our local Ikea….’had to‘ in that it could not be avoided anymore, a chore to be endured ….I needed blinds.
Well actually we had a great time!
Just me and the 11yr old….store was not crowded,we found everything we needed and more of course.
We play a game on ikea visits…put it in the trolley if you think its a good price, you like and ‘need ‘ it.
Then just before checkout we sift through everything and say “do we really really need it?”
if the answer is yes we keep it, if not we don’t buy it.
Its amazing, it works too, I think we have halved our final bills playing this ‘game’ in the past and it saves having to say no to everything.
My friends play it now too.
As well as the blinds ,we discovered that he ‘needed’ a flashing alarm clock
and I “needed” these flamingo glasses because I adore flamingos and only 75p !
So what a quirky coincedence when Mollie Makes arrives this morning with an article on flamingoes.
Of course thats my glass, its not in the article silly!
I’m just proving the point….
Its the big birds I love…swans and flamingoes.
The two pics above and below were from an early post, showing my collection of swans and one I sprayed last year…
(I had to delete the post because it had become target for spam and since then no spam???)
…this was my February bedside table post, with swan pic below
and do you remember this ring I bought and posted aboutearlier from the delightful Blanche and Lola?
Did you notice the Abigail Brown Flamingo in the MM article too?
There was a very quick visit to Paperchase …. I needed to go to because there was a sale on….
Tra la la….
Ps. Re sewing Bee… Such a shame Tilly went out last night as we all loved her…..I now have my fabric an pattern for the ‘A’ line skirt and will make it tomorrow?
PPS John Lewis In Southampton informed me they had sold out of ‘A’ line skirt patterns yesterday…..all due to the sewing bee effect…Yay!
