“What I bought” Wednesday
I went to Ikea this afternoon to buy three silver picture frames and a potato ricer, the latter on the advice of my dear friend A, whose mashed potato my incredibly fussy D-there’s-lumps-in-it”-D and D-“don’t-like-mashed-potatoes”-S actually will eat.
I found the ricer and the photo frames but, at the check-out, my trolley also contained:
4 x swimming towels (not needed but I liked the pattern)
1 x stuffed doll (boy variety, clutched by DS)
1 x stuffed dog (Dalmation variety, clutched by DS)
1 x washing-up brush (clutched by DS: “I help Gerlie.”)
2 x funnels (I often wish I had a funnel. Can’t think why now, but… next time)
1 x roll of art paper
2 x duvet cover sets (for DS)
1 x pillow (for DS)
2 x chopping boards (can never have too many)
1 x packet paper napkins (ditto)
Anyway, I’m slightly relieved, in a strange way, to say I actually ended up buying none of these items, despite ringing them up at the till. I also didn’t buy marshmallows for the children to eat on the way home, much to DS’s disgust.
That’s what happens when you leave your purse at home.
