DIY with Kids {Wicked Wednesdays – 5th November}

Actually I would probably say….

‘Don’t Do It Yourself with Kids’

But anyway, this weekend I managed to cross one of my ‘to-do’s’ off my list of a couple of weeks ago (read here) which seems to be getting smaller a lot slower than I’d imagined.

Anyways, this particular ‘to do’ was to take an early morning jaunt down to Southampton to visit the fabulous Ikea home store.

We only went looking for a particular couple of items which was going to cost us £70,  but ended up an hour later spending about £400!!


We spotted a pair of bedside tables which would finish off our bedroom perfectly, but I must say, putting them together was a little trickier than we’d originally envisaged due to these two little urchins!!!

    So funny – can imagine how much harder it was to put them together with two little ones ‘helping’. Know just what you mean about ending up spending more in Ikea too! 🙂

      Thank you. Yes, they were very helpful indeed,….. Both climbing in the cabinet, one running off with the hammer, the other trying to eat the nails!! Brilliant!!! Thank you so much for your comment and sorry it’s taken me so long to reply!!! Steph xxx

      Thank you so much for your sweet comment and apologies for such a delayed response!! Yes, they are quite cute sometimes, but I must say, not so much when they then get stuck in the DIY and start screaming for help!!! Steph xxxx

      Unfortunately it was only seconds later that one of them trod on the others foot and all hell broke loose!! Total carnage ensued!!! Hahaha! xx

      Well yes – until very soon after when all hell broke loose!! I think thy realised it wasn’t the biggest of spaces for the two of them to squish themselves into after all!!! Hahaha. xxx
