Eye Spy ...

my/our bed.



Bought from Ikea. I have a love hate relationship with Ikea. Love the stuff there but hate actually going there. I end up feeling like a rat in a maze. Toss in dozens of screaming children, people pushing to get by, unhelpful staff, and trolley boys who hit you with the trolleys its my idea of hell :p On the plus side the mattress is really comfortable :D

And I love the colours you can get for the bed sets. One problem with that though. We had to stock up on bed sets last time we were in Canada as the sizes for the duvet covers are different here. And Ikea mattresses here are different sizes too, the only thing we can find to fit it comes from Ikea :/ But they are high thread count so are comfy too :)

And the matress almost blew off the car driving back :p Probably should have either rented a van or picked a day when the wind wasn't blowing at 70plus mph :p

More Eye Spy here :)

I have that same exact love hate relationship with Ikea. I always feel claustrophobic in there, and I just want to get out as soon as I can. But, I love some of their stuff!

Yep, I like Ikea stuff and loathe and detest visting the store too. You see its always so much worse when the screaming children belong to you!

That is the most fantastic blanket!
