Monday Links For The Week … Ikea Trips & Pizza …

Hello everyone … hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend … we’ve been super busy on our end … we got up to loads of stuff and it was all very productive too … we started off the weekend with a trip up to Ikea Friday morning … there were a couple bits of furniture we needed so after picking them up … and inevitably we picked up a few other things too … you can never go to Ikea and not end up getting more than you anticipated …

photo 1Perry had a tough time getting it all in the car but we managed in the end … although he did send me away to do something else while he packed the car … didn’t want me to stand there telling him what to do … (I cant do any heavy lifting due to an old back injury) … so I left him to it and by the time I got back he had just finished closing the car door … although we were both surprised he managed to fit everything in … it was an interesting drive back home …

photo 2Once home we started organising everything and got going on the assembly … again Perry prefers to do it on his own without me getting in his way … so I gladly left him alone with his tool box and got on with other chores …

photo 3Hugo however had other plans … if you saw my Caturday post this week you will have seen Hugo’s attempts at helping out … if not here are a couple snaps below …

photo 4 photo 4We headed out for an early dinner along the beach front at an Italian place and to be honest we were both surprised by how good it was … it looked like a pretty average restuarant but the Pizza and Calzone we had were very yummy …
