Going for a drink.

 Trying to make the most of the weekend can be seemingly difficult sometimes...especially with the 'What we should do?!' dilemma that we come across all the time

We are lucky enough to have a local Ikea...about 2o minutes away! It is definitely something we take for granted. Ian & I went there on Saturday just for a look around.

Crazy Light Shade thing..whatever it is lol.

 I know my sister would LOVE these lights..very funky!

I've never used fabric from Ikea but the colours/designs are so vibrant! Will make another visit soon once I have a project in mind!

On Sunday, we went to a garden center to look at the sale items (nothing there though!!) but ended up at a local pub for a drink instead.

It was so nice. 

We chatted for an hour or so just about life. The good, the bad and the ugly. We talked so much that we only had a drink each the whole time we were there. I know we are both still young  but after 4 years with eachother it was nice to just 'be' with one another..no TV..no computer...no distractions....just a cosy sofa and a glass of Coke lol !!

Hopefully it's something we can do every once in a while : )

This is what I love about blogging....that one drink was so special and without a blog, I would most probably forget about it in a few weeks.  Who knows how long this blog will last for but hopefully in years to come I will look back on this and remember...

It's all about making memories.

  2. we went to ikea last weekend. i saw some duvet's that i really liked but didn't need so they stayed there!!! i love ikea but it is about 50 minutes away so it's a trip that needs to be planned.
