A trip to Ikea




That was part of today's events..a trip to the Ikea store at Rhodes Shopping Centre...went with three of the kids and one of the friars from our parish.

It was a pretty funny outing. At one stage, I was flying, er, I mean driving, the car up the exit ramp . Saw a minimum height barrier ~ obviously meant for trucks and vans not station wagons like my car. Yet, I instinctively worried about height - would my car fit under the barrier? And I instinctively ducked my head, while sitting in the car driving ~ as if that would help!

The funny, funny, thing is that Br., in the front passenger seat, instinctively did the same ducking ( useless, redundant) motion, at precisely the same time as I.

Gosh, we laughed. And laughed. Tears rolling down our faces.

The kids looked at us in amazement.
And Thomas texted his friend - "I think Mum is blonde".

As if!

Before I read that Thomas had texted about you being blonde I had exactly the same thought. Oh dear. It was a funny story.

And the friar? What colour would his hair be?

Ah, kindred spirits, as Anne would say. Watch out for those hearts, Chris! Thanks for the nice words on the pic, Michele.
