#ikeafail trying to make lemonade out of lemons as I stay home with what looks like pink eye and my husband's Ikea wardrobe hanger falls down on me... Time to build it better and stronger! Who has a truck so I can pick up some lumber? #whatamess

How long I have been on hold with @ikeausa because they can’t seem to get three left legs sent to me in a proper fashion. Called Monday and has to wait over an hour. Called the week before and was on hold two hours. Same problem. #ikeafail #omg #keepcalm #sos #makeitstop
On occasion I get carried away with myself. Yesterday was one of those days. I thought it would be a good idea to take myself and two small children to @Ikea. I went around the market hall picking up wonderful things like sandwich bags, coat hangers, mirrors and (god awful) almond sweets. Then after a lifetime of searching for white dronas boxes I made my way to the self-service-big-heavy-box area where I managed to slide a huge Kallax unit and a Hemnes shoe cabinet on top of my fairly full trolley. It wasn’t until I reached the checkout that I realised my mistake. I couldn’t get to my shopping underneath and I certainly couldn’t lift the heavy boxes out of the trolley! Thankfully in a moment of Ikea solidarity, fellow shoppers helped me heave the boxes off my trolley, get everything scanned and back in again. Then a very kind chap helped me to Jenga all my wares in to the car boot before I dragged the kids back in for a desk (and some peri peri chicken in the restaurant). 9pm and two assembled flat packs later I was not-so-quietly congratulating myself on my success... until rob half assembled the shoe cabinet and realised it’s miles too big and has to be returned. Ikea pt2 will be taking place next week. Wish me luck.

... and this is why you DO NOT shop online at IKEA. This "night stand" is the size of Hanson! He also loves slippers 😹💙 #catsofinstagram #catstagram #crazycatlady #catmom #cats #ikea #ikeafail #hanson

Guess where we spent the rainy morning? ....as if the meatballs didn’t give it away already.... My team absolutely loved it. The boys were so excited to do so much ‘walking walking walking’ as they like to call it. They were brilliant holding mummy’s hand and holding on to the pram, such good boys 💙💙 and my girlies were busy looking at all the lovely furniture, lights and just everything really. The favourite obviously being the children’s section where each of the 4 got a little toy to take home so they were well excited pretty much all day. We enjoyed a nice lunch and once we had finished, a lady, who appeared to be the grandma of a little girl she was with, approached me and commented on how well behaved my bunch all were. I did spot her granddaughter a little earlier throwing a couple of items across the table and her red face indicated that there was a massive tantrum brewing at some stage. So I felt for the lady and I should have probably told her that we were in fact cheating a bit. As you may have spotted already my crew was watching Peppa Pig on my phone for a littlw while. I usually like to take some books or little toys to keep them happy during lunch but....yeah not today 🤷🏼‍♀️ Anyway I would love to make this trip a regular if it wasn’t for the little Ikea fairies 🧚‍♀️ 🧚‍♂️, like my very good friend calls them, that keep puttinh things in your basket. Brilliant things that you never knew you needed but just can’t leave without all of a sudden. So we might just have to make this outing a special treat every once in a while. Any else been a victim of the Ikea fairies??? #meatballs #ikea #wellbehavedkids #twinsofinstagram #doubletrouble #twinstwice #twinsandmoretwins #twinboys #twingirls #peppapig #kötbullar #proudmom #auntyschmarrin @karin_bracher

The washing instructions for my new Ikea sheets are in....Australian?? 😂 Pickles is concerned I can’t convert the temp from Celsius to Fahrenheit. I am equally concerned.

I got 99% of an @ikeausa trashcan put together. I think that seriously puts me at genius level. Was about to call @oscardansk to help finish it but Lic to the rescue.

When you have a courtesy car that’s smaller than what you are used to, and you go to IKEA, but can’t fit the whole family and IKEA goodies in the car, so one of you has to go home by train......yeah, that. #IKEA #train #homebytrain #onmyown #childfree #instamum #ikealife #mumlife #mumsofinstagram #parentlife #scotrail #metrocentre #northeast #goinghome #ikeafail #tessalation @dad_rave_from_the_nineties

☆ IKEA FAIL... So this morning was a right off from get go... then this afternoon i decided to go to ikea as we are in dire need of a new bed and mattress, well in our Ikea there is a mirrored cut through so you can miss a section out (to save time, i mean if you do the whole lot its like a day trip out) well it wasnt until i got to the lighting section when i realised id only gone and cut the bloody bed section out!! No way was i turning back. Drives me mad when people who go in the wrong direction in ikea, and i wasnt about to be one of those people... anywho, got home, loads of cleaning planned but Rouxs been super clingy. So now hes in bed im just going to chill with my cappuccino and watch #mumvlogs. Heres hoping tomorrow is a better day!
