Instead of watching the Royal Wedding yesterday I decided to venture out to Ikea for some fab new bits and bobs to furnish my new sewing space. This did not go entirely to plan...
As Ikea is about an hour away I decided to give the car a little TLC before I started the journey. So off to Asda to full her up with petrol, then a wash and some air and water. All sounds rather normal really doesn't it, apart from the bonnet not closing the first time round I thought it was all rather normal. So there I am pelting it down the motorway when I realise that the bonnet still isn't shut properly... Grrr! So I sighed and pulled off at the services to check it out. There I am at the services slamming the bonnet and it still wouldn't shut! What the hell! So I pulled out my phone and google'd the nearest Kwik Fit (gotta love technology) and off I went, slightly worried about the bonnet flinging up and causing havoc. I get to Kwik Fit and the blokey couldn't shut it properly either (insert massive sigh of relief that it wasn't just me being a Spazz). After a bit of tinkering and still not being able to do it we worked out that the (insert major sarcasm) rather lovely person who cracked my bumper
Off to Ikea!!! Stuffs were purchased and happyness prevailed (Yay!), until I got back to the car! Dagnabit I should have remembered that the back seats don't go down... Grrr! How was my big table top going to fit in now? I ended up fitting it in but I had to pull my seat forward a smidge and drive a little cramped up. No pain no gain eh?
But anyway, my new sewing space is all set up Yay! All tidy and lovely and snazzy!
Another Yay! I've ordered my fabric for the meeting and decided what to make, no changing my mind now!
