A quickie

Well in my efforts to sort out my storage and space etc. I had a little jaunt to Ikea with Sam and Mum - well I say a little jaunt, it turned out to take us about 4 hours to get round the store (partly because we had to keep doubling back to find mum bless her!). I found this Lekman boxed which fits their shelves and they actually fit in to the ones I currently have - and even better a sheet of 12 x 12 fits too, conveniently hiding all the bits and bobs inside - cool eh?? Can you imagine the fun co-ordinating your favourite range of scrapping papers with your craft space - ok so I need to get a life ;o))

I'm definitely going to get three more although they stick out the back of my shelves a bit but eventually I'll replace it with the Ikea one. Does anyone else feel like their craft room/space just is consistently in need of one major tidy up!?

Oh and a funny story - walking around Ikea my mum came upon a basket full of hats in the children's dept. She noticed one that she thought would suit Sam and lifted it for her to try on. Mum did a little jump when she found it to be still warm - turned out the hat belonged to the big edjit who was trying on the kiddie hats beside her lol! Leave it to Mum. Oh and I then mortified both Mum and Sam in KFC. They were playing one of my favourite tunes and so I started singing - rather too loudly for Sam lol, imagine her face when I said I was going to get up and dance in front of the counter so I could see myself on their security screen!!


  1. OOOOh Mandy your story about Ikea just cracks me up and No I would not dare bring my mum there I can imagine all sorts of similar scenarios!!!!!!!!!!1
    I too have a story about my first visit last week to Ikea but a decent time interval needs to pass before I tell but It involves a mass exodus of everyone in Ikea including the little ones in the cresche being led out on some sort of lead or harness that ensured they were all tied together

    will share later!!
