i went to Ikea.
Lucky lucky me.
After the mandatory meatballs and counting of pregnant nesting women ordering their husbands about and measuring things i took myself down to the warehouse bit and purchased a few lovely flatpacks to spend the rest of this year assembling.
Having opened a carton and withdrawn the instructions from the little plastic bag containing twenty thousand small screws of which i will always have at least 10 left over and panic about the safety of the structure i have just built...i sat down to read said picture instructions.
I was immediately struck by just how ACCURATE they are....
THAT is EXACTLY what i looked like...except with more hair and a dress on.
