Didn’t we do well!

As I explained yesterday it was off to IKEA to buy furniture for my flat but unfortunately it was left to Kelly & I as my brother had to work

We started the day by collection our hire van and treating ourselves to breakfast

008

Next on the list was moving all my bedroom furniture to the flat. Unfortunately after getting one chest of draws out of the room we realised we had no chance of moving the wardrobes on our own

Mission aborted more items were added to the IKEA shopping list

010

Yes that is 5 trolley you can see!

Here’s Kelly advising me how Sofa 2 is going to get in the van

013

IKEA mission completed with van full to the brim it was home to start putting together furniture

018

Sideboard moved from the bedroom with TV – check!

020

Dining table and chairs – check!

022

Sofas – check!

025

It was a long and exhausting day and I would’ve been lost without Kelly’s strength and persistence (she refused to leave the flat until we’d built everything for the lounge!) but it was well worth it!

Today I’m on my own to get on with some work at the flat and prepare for Saturday when Kelly is back with extra assistance so we can start putting pictures up on the walls!

Hope you have a lovely weekend planned and I hope to be back with more photos of my latest developments

  10. oh, you are a tonic! YOu crack me up. A few things indeed!!! I think it's absolutely impossible to go to Ikea and buy 'just a few things', impossible! Can't say I've ever had as many trolleys as that though!!

    Your flat is looking cosy already. Loving those purchases. You must be worn out!
