Those Clever Swedes

What with our free-range rabbits being totally committed to the punk lifestyle we get through a lot of  rugs. Happily, Ikea sell very nice, stripey, cotton throw-rugs at  £1.49 a pop. It's as cheap- if not cheaper- than putting down newspaper.

So the plan was we'd buy an armful of cheap rugs and leave, but it's never that simple, is it? We  came across the scented candles and they were such pretty colours and smelled so good that we bought an armful of those as well. Then Ailz went into the bargain corner (I stayed outside with the heavy, heavy shopping bag) and bought me a cheap chair. 

Ooh, Ergonomic!

I see from this morning's paper that Ikea is getting into the house-building business too. Stands to reason, I suppose. Cheap houses, nicely designed, pre-assembled so you can put one up in a day.  Each block (containing three appartments) comes with a communal bench and an apple tree.

I have seen the future and it smells of vanilla.
