What do I need to buy? Lol

TunipTheUnconquerable Fri 31-Jan-14 13:13:07

Every different flavour of pickled herring. That's what I get.
And you may need a Billy bookcase.

PoopMaster Fri 31-Jan-14 13:14:50

I always pick up some horse meatballs.

Might try the herring next time smile

HoratiaDrelincourt Fri 31-Jan-14 13:15:10

Krokant chocolates (orange bag)

Lots of candles.

And photo frames.

Mummytotwox Fri 31-Jan-14 13:18:45

I deffo need candles. And I want some boxes. Going to buy some meatballs. What's the herring thing? I thought herring was a bird?

HoratiaDrelincourt Fri 31-Jan-14 13:20:13


A herring is an oily fish.

Wait until Monday and you can see the new Kitchens.

Mummytotwox Fri 31-Jan-14 13:20:27

I CANNOT go to IKEA and spend less than �150. Have fun, am well jeal.

GoofyIsACow Fri 31-Jan-14 13:23:17

You will definitely need some expedit and a load of picture frames and candles to fill it with oh and various colours of fleece throw

Cinnamon rolls.
(Sorry I've just realised, you're Mummy to two x aren't you? All this time I've been vaguely wondering if your DS was nicknamed twox blush

I love these cans of fizzy pear juice. I always buy a couple.

PeterParkerSays Fri 31-Jan-14 13:26:47

For me, material as well, as they have some interesting designs.

Herring is a fish by the way - British sardine.

GrandadGrumps Fri 31-Jan-14 13:31:03

Heron or maybe Herring Gull?

This was on TV last night

GrandadGrumps Fri 31-Jan-14 13:33:20

Herrings aren't the same fish as sardines, although I think some species of fish known as herrings are allowed to be canned as sardines when they're less than a certain size.

The cinnamon rolls are nasty sad

I say to DS "All herrings are fish but not all fish are herrings"

He's confused (I've no idea what it means, it sounds like a mum-thing to say)

GrandadGrumps Fri 31-Jan-14 13:34:51

And always reindeer meat from Ikea, just for the DS' and DGS' nasty streaks.

MrsBungle Fri 31-Jan-14 13:35:13

Do you need to sort kids books at all? If so, the £4 spice racks are fabulous as kids book shelves. We've just put up 4 in the playroom and they look great, everyone has commented on them.

HelloBoys Fri 31-Jan-14 13:37:22

I always get their ground coffee and pasta and also crockery (plates). their photo frames and/or picture frames are great too. when I was last there I bought a white plush rat toy (for my cat) which is now my cuddle toy!

Mrswellyboot Fri 31-Jan-14 13:39:26

Oh lovely. I have my eye on a trolley!

Magnetic noticeboard and spice holders for your office or bits and bobs (hair bands etc)

The bibs are the best (if you need them)


Have a great times!

Salty licorice
Big crispbreads
Fake caviar
Golden strands/ strings (I think they're caramel flavour?)
