I am so happy today. I have finally got myself a small dining set. My son and daughter-in-law are in Brisbane for 3 nights having a mini holiday. Today they took me to IKEA so I could by myself a small table and chairs. I had done my research, had a good idea what I wanted but I wasn’t prepared to buy the table until I had seen it and sat down at it. Even though I had a budget to stick to I really wanted a sturdy table not just for meals but also for my art and craft activities. IKEA is well known as the ‘flat pack store’.
We enjoyed meandering through IKEA. My 6 year old grandson bought himself a new dinosaur, he adores them.
My daughter-in-law got a new lamp so she can read a night and not have the main light on in the lounge.
We managed to fit all the flat packs x4 into the boot of the small car.
Back at my unit my son offered to assemble the flat packs. I am not permitted to put photos of my family on my blog site.
All assembled and looking great.
Many of you will know that IKEA is a Swedish Company. Guess what the dining set was made in China (no offence to China).
We christened the new dining table. The four of us enjoyed a lovely meal that I had prepared. Silverside with Mustard Sauce, crispy baked potatoes, carrots and peas, followed by raspberry jelly and fruit.
I am feeling grateful and totally blessed.
