We took Daughter 1 and the children to Ikea today. I always like to have a potter round if it's not too busy. We ourselves didn't need anything but Granddaughter enjoyed being in the trolley.
We did get rather stuck at one point while Grandson played with cars and a garage and a road mat.
However, we lured him away with the promise of a scone. He enjoyed this and also had (very brief!) fun bouncing about on the sofa.
(For those worried about the lady behind Grandson: a) there was quite a big gap between our sofa and hers and b) he was in this position for about five seconds before his mother told him to sit still. The actual bouncing was very minor. We are aware of other people. I just thought it was a nice photo. Blogs may not always convey an accurate impression of the facts.)
Granddaughter chewed the box of plates that her mum had bought. I'm sure it was clean. Ish.
Despite not needing anything, I bought a step for small people who want to reach the bathroom sink; a musical rabbit in a hat that Grandson fell in love with; and two packets of chocolate marzipan cakes. As you do.
On the way home we found ourselves behind this cyclist, whose jersey read "Hare and Hounds Running Club - making you look fabulous." Mr Life thought that this suggested that the members of the club look so bad that we would look fabulous in comparison; but I feel his interpretation was faulty.
The weather was a bit damp but the daffodils in the Meadows certainly looked lovely.
