supossed to be going with my DH to look at kitchens. It's an 2 hour drive.

I can NOT face it, had a hard week and I'm exhausted. Will have a 5mo with us who is likely to scream through whole process.

Please tell me IANBU to tell DH we have different plans tomorrow!

Oh and it's got to be this w-end!

Hmmmmm looking at the time I realise it is today.

what about checking out the kitchens online, on the IKEA website?

Ikea should do divorces is all I can say.

YABU I love ikea. The cakes/tarts in the restaurant are scrummy.

However I am a 15 minute drive so you are also NBU.
Is it really that far for you sad

YANBU ikea on a Saturday is like the seventh circle of hell!

Oh god, I went on Wednesday (without children, I might add) - yanbu because it IS hell but on th eother hand, you'll feel glad when it's all over... and your baby might surprise you and sleep/have a lovely time. But I feel your pain, I really do.

Flat pack helllllllllll! Do what I do when I have to visit in-laws or similar nightmarish scenarios and feign illness. Send him and Dc on their merry way and put your feet up. Self-preservation of body and mind.

I love ikea and I would love it if DH took me to look at kitchens. ours was past it when we moved in 14 years ago.

No way. Not unless you are there the minute it opens. Not on a Saturday in school holidays with a baby including a 2 hour drive.

Their kitchens are great, we did ours ourselves and it's beautiful. But we always went in the evening, to the quietest shop, during the week. Most branches are open til 10pm.

Once you have got the general idea of what you want you can order most of it online anyway.

agent love it!

Cunting pillows grin

Though my dm and I had a very immature laugh the other day at their website '2 knob' storage.

Don't have to fake illness as have fecking mastitis.

That's it we are NOT going.

HelloBear Sat 06-Apr-13 01:40:56

Cheers oldbag and I am a lazy girl.

pollypandemonium Sat 06-Apr-13 01:41:39

Jeez. Mastitis as well. Take it easy and go another time. Buy all the pullout drawers you can afford and think through your waste recycling very carefully.

pollypandemonium Sat 06-Apr-13 01:43:01

Check out 'Ikeafans' for ideas and experience.

AgentZigzag Sat 06-Apr-13 01:45:06

In my head I love Ikea, but the RL experience just goes to show that Swedish shopping psychology can't be applied to a British framework.

Ancient and violent parts of the brain are kicked into action and we regress 10000 years.

HelloBear Sat 06-Apr-13 02:37:23

Just woke up DH with the pretence of helping with baby and said don't think we should go.

He agreed smile

No IKEA (but b&q, homebase, wren and John Lewis instead)

I love IKEA and making flat pack furniture. But glad you're not going as it will be hellish today!
