Today I was up early: flask of tea made, comfy shoes on; and into GD's car for the two-hour trip to Bristol and a mum and daughter shopping trip to IKEA.
It's under two weeks until the little family move into their new pad, GD wanted to get a few bits and bobs; so the two chaps were under strict instructions with the babies, and the two ladies set off for a shopping trip!
This was my view as GD drove.
I managed to knit socks all the way there and all the way home again!
A beautifully stormy sky over Bristol.
My gorgeous pesto risotto lunch!
This lampshade took my eye, but I think I can make one for far less than the £13 IKEA want to charge for it!
I liked these decorative buttons, but was disappointed they were made of a metal material. I'd like some in wood. And joined together. That I could use for something. Like a coat rack? Hmm.
I liked this griddle pan. I used to have one like this and it was fab.
I didn't buy one today though.
I really liked this wood work too and white legged unit. I thought it was very pretty. I could see me cooking and prepping meals on one like this.
So what did I buy?
Well, I spent the grand sum of £6!
I bought a £1 wine glass that Man Wonderful had been after replacing for a while.
And a gorgeous slim tray to sit at the back of my desk in work with all my bits and bobs on.
It was a super day out; GD bought considerably more items, but she is furnishing a new house!
This evening the 'kids' are having a date night at my insistence, while MW and I look after the babies and catch up with each other.
What have you been up to today?
