Something must be wrong with me...I drove to IKEA this evening with a 50€ gift certificate in my pocket for my spending pleasure (provided by my only cousin, who is expecting her first child. I gave her all of our baby furniture and didn't expect anything in return, but how could I say no to an IKEA gift certificate?) And what did I buy? A basket and some gift wrap (was on sale for 1€). Not even the christmas decoration made me go into a shopping frenzy. Usually I'm glad if I can get everything into one shopping cart and then into the car. Once I stacked so many boxes and things into the tiny car I used to have, that an employee of IKEA was truely impressed and went by smiling while saying "chapeau" and tipping an imaginary hat. He must have had this old IKEA ad in his mind:
I remember having difficulties to get behind the wheel, 'cause every inch of the car was packed to the roof. I had to drive with the left side mirror only as I couldn't see the right mirror nor use the inside one. I wish I had a photo of Chris' face when he came hopping down the 5 floors from old our apartment and saw the car he was to unpack - priceless.
Well the good thing is I have to go back another day, after all I have a gift certificate waiting to be used :-)
