It's getting cold

Oh No, Summer only just finished less than a week ago and already it's getting cold at night time :( We had dinner with my in laws tonight (MIL birthday) and we were sitting outside and it was chilly. Gone are the nights of sitting outside enjoying the warm fresh air and chatting with friends and family - BUT, in saying that, colder weather is always nice spent snuggling on the lounge watching a dvd or uumm, hmmm, what else can you do on a cold day? Scrap?? Oh yeah, NICE! haha

I have done no scrapping or card making since my last post and I don't even have any pics to share, I have d.loaded them onto my PC and they have gone missing!! Of course I have already deleted them from my memory card. That is the first time that has happened to me! I'm not happy JAN! I hope someone else was taking pics at cake time but I think they all thought I had it under control so didn't bother.

Well, I have a day off tomorrow and Daniel and I are going to all the furniture shops to look for a new bedroom suite for Abbey. It will be her 7th birthday in August (I know it is months away) and she has specifically asked for a desk so she can do her homework in her room. When we put her in a big bed we did just that, we bought her a double bed and there just isn't enough room in there for a desk and a double bed so we're off the get a whole new suite. I have browsed the Ikea website and they have something very nice that I would like to have a closer look at but the store is 1.5 hours away so I thought I might try all the local places first. Not only that, I have never been to an Ikea store so I have no idea what the quality of the furniture is....can anyone tell me?? Please leave me a comment if you have purchased furniture from Ikea before and let me know if its cheap because it's terrible quality. anyway, I'd better be off, Daniel is home tonight and I want to go and watch some tele with him.

Until next time,
Shell xx

Hi Shell!!! Never been to IKEA...oh my.. I think you should pay it a visit!!! The furniture is generally very good. We bought a little Toddler Bed from there for Jorja last year (she's 2) just before Ella was born, and our desks are from Ikea. Actually we seem to have quite a bit of furniture from IKEA, and never had any probs at all. Have fun shopping!!

Been to IKEA and it is a fantastic storage place and bits and pieces place. As for quality, well, you get what you pay for. Saying that, we bought a couple of bedside cupboards that still look nice and sturdy
