Thursday’s Weekly Roundup … Cars … Ikea & The Weekend …

Well this week has just been crazy … we’ve both been busy at work and to be honest other than a couple thing’s not much has really happened around here … We’ve both been really knackered after work most days that it’s a wonder I’ve even been able to get dinner ready …

Anyways kicking off with what happened last weekend … Friday we went to Mina & Franka’s 1st Birthday Party … they are so adorable and I can’t get over how much they have grown and how quickly the year has just flown by … Crazy …

_MG_0557-1Saturday we spent the day at home but headed out in the afternoon to pick up our Car from the repair place and then decided to head to Festival City for dinner as we were right by it … we had wanted to go to see a movie but due to a technical problem they couldn’t show the film we wanted to see … so we thought we’d pop into IKEA quickly to grab two things we needed and leave …

2 hours later and we left with over 5 bags worth of stuff … why does that always happen? … We rewarded ourselves with an ice cream before heading back home …

I wanted to get some different frames to hang up a couple prints we had … I really liked the frames we had originally gotten them but they are quite heavy and without a proper drill to put in a stronger fixing to hang them (we’d already damaged the wall a bit trying to do it) … we hadn’t been able to hang them for ages … so I wanted to get some lighter frames that we could hang with temporary fixings …

So we were finally able to hang up our illustration we had done months ago …

20131031-132016.jpgAfter all the trouble we have had with the Golf and now that the warranty has run out Perry and I were talking about maybe replacing the Golf with a different car that still had warranty … mostly for the piece of mind … and since we are currently renting a car we may as well buy a car and sell the Golf later when we don’t need two cars …

So after some searching around Perry happened upon a Skoda Fabia VRS which is essentially exactly the same as the Golf just with a different outside … so having gone to check it out and being happy with the state its in etc … (only a year old and has 4yrs warranty) we took the plunge and so now we officially own a second car …

20131031-131947.jpgThat is pretty much it in terms of what has happened this week … nothing too exciting … I have so many plans for this weekend and lots of little things I want to get sorted … I’d love to get a long list of errands and other administrative tasks off my TO-DO list this weekend if I can but I guess we will see how it goes …

Hope you all have something nice planned for the weekend …

Till next time …
