Last week, I went to Ikea with little lady lost. it was a mission indeed.
i needed a sideboard/buffet. I had been eyeing off one from S&P in high gloss black with the little baroque legs. i dont know if this is what they are called but im calling it that from now on.
anyways, i was looking through the ikea website and noticed they had one that was very simular ( not as nice) but at a third of the price. so i decided to do the sensible thing and purchase the cheaper one.
SO, after lady lost and i found lots of nick nacks to add to our trolley we went to the warehouse section to pick up the sideboard which would be told would fit in my car . BOY THEY COULDNT BE ANY WRONGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEERRRRRRR.
it didnt even come close to fitting in my car. and we could hardly lift it.
so a call had to be made.
get it delivered in a few days and pay more $$$? NO! THEN IKEA WINS! THATS WHAT THEY WANT!
with an hour before closing i had to make a decision fast.
I ring my dad
" Does Ms Blogless have our work ute"
dad : "yes she does. why?"
*beep hang up*
ring ring Ms Blogless
"Ms Blogless. I NEED U IKEA RICHMOND ASAP BRING UTE"
she comes and saves the day. w00t w00t
then i get a call from Freedom
" your coffee table has arrived. come pick it up from melb central before we close in an hour"
STRESS INDUCED HEART ATTACK
i buzz off to the city
Ms Blogless races to richmond.
and an hour later all my goodies arrive at home safe and sound.
this is in a million pieces.
i always thought that ikea things came in like 4 pieces and u pop them together like lego.
"this will be fun" i thought " i will build this all myself and suprise people with my talent"
but let me tell you, Ms Blogless and i gave it a fair go. we got the whole shape of the thing happening and put the doors on ! then i had to get my trusty ol' dad to come and finish the job.
