If you read my last post, you know that We signed a lease to move in the rented house on Friday. On Friday, we went to sign the lease and they took us to a walk-through in the town house. Everything seemed ok and I could mentally furnish my house about what stuffs I want to buy and where to put it, etc, etc. So the shopping for filling the house started yesterday in IKEA. Let me tell you that after 6 hrs in that shop, I have never hated shopping as much in my life 😦 . I thought it was the most tiring experience in our life.
I don’t remember feeling like this when we furnished our house in Dublin. It was quite easy actually, all we did was order in Argos and they will deliver it to our house 🙂 . But in IKEA, you have to take all the stuffs from the warehouse, pay the bill and then deliver it to the delivery guys 😦 . Hubby took about 6 trolleys of stuffs from the warehouse which took him about 2 hrs. After all this, we then had to go through the small items like kitchen stuffs, lights, pillows, bedsheets, etc, etc. I was so tired and I wasn’t in a mood. So I just took whatever stuffs which caught my eye.
I never realised that I have to buy so much stuffs. Even from the cutleries to storage bottles, it kept coming on and on. I just couldn’t take it any more. Choosing lights became a huge thing, We were looking for a floor lamp and also we had to choose sturdy stuffs because I don’t want them falling all the time with the cats running around the house all the time 🙂 . Hubby wanted to get a red one so we got the biggest red one they had 😀 , followed by small round balls like table lamps for the bedrooms.
Next came the pillows, They had about 30 varieties of pillow which I had to test it all. The pillows in the corp housing has been giving me neck aches 😦 so I wanted a sturdy one. By the time we got this, I just had enough. I was sick if IKEA and just wanted to go home and lie down. I so wanted to check out the plants section and I was interested in getting the bamboo sticks 🙂 but had to keep reminding myself that my cats won’t let it live 😀 .
There is an artificial plant in the corp housing which they love to chew on 😀 . So seriously can’t get any plants in the house. And today we are going to COSTO to get all the food stuffs, tv, etc, etc . I kept thinking, Did I ever spend this much in Dublin for our house as well?
I can’t believe that crystal cat litter is expensive over here 😦 . The cat foods are ok though and they are getting fat 🙂 . Maybe they are trying to keep up from the trauma they had, when they came over here 😀 . Bommu has the begging to the T, with cute little face, big eyes and if I refuse to see him, then he will come and touch me with his paw and mew till he knows that I understand what he wants 🙄 . Bujju sleeps throughout the day and bommu sleeps thougthout the day which makes them bored when the other one is sleeping 🙂 .
We will finally movie into the house probably on Tuesday and I know that its going to take atleast a month or so to settle 🙂 . I keep thinking that I will post an article but just wasn’t in a mood to write anything. Hopefully by next week, I can keep up with the blog.
