I was forced to buy clothes today. Triggering and irritating enough as it is. To make it worse, this obnoxious teenager went to pick up some leggings from the same size rail as me and quickly snatched her hand away saying “Ew no, they’re FAT sizes. Hahahaha!”

I bought my fat sized leggings, and threw the chocolate I had bought in another shop in the bin.

Fail on many levels there.

Not sure we’ve quite got the hang of back carries yet…

The living room smells like dirty nappies, and there is something alive stuck in the chimney.

Alfie meeting his idol!

Important note to my catastrophic thinking:

While the terror alert has been raised to “severe”, it is highly unlikely that IS extremists will target the Ikea in one of Britain’s smallest cities tomorrow while we are there.

Why not? It’s good for him, he enjoys it, and it’s nothing a bath can’t sort out.

Ooh wow… its just the weirdest / best place… A swedish furniture store that’s famous for flatpack furniture.

Ok so, it’s HUGE. So big they give you a map. When you walk in you get a free mini pencil, tape measure, and a little piece of paper. You then enter the “showroom” it’s a series of entire rooms made from their flatpack furniture, and then decorated with their home wares. EVERYTHING from the duvet covers and alarm clocks in their bedrooms to the pictures and rugs in their living rooms.
Every item has a code, you write down what you like for later.

At the end of the showroom is the CAFETERIA OMG THIS IS THE BEST PART. They serve meatballs and chips or pasta, salmon and potatoes, and other random swedish stuff. Then there’s jelly and strawberry tarts and refillable drinks, omg so much. And it’s SO cheap. Like £3 for a plate of meatballs and pasta. It’s amazing.

After you have gorged yourself on meatballs you go to the shop floor and buy cheap tea towels and plates and washing up sponges and fabric and like everything for your home you could ever imagine. You probably get lost too.

THEN you go down to the basement with the codes for the furniture you want to buy. You get a cool trolley thing and begin a scavengers hunt to locate the correct aisle and location of your furniture. You argue over which colour you liked and then load it all on the trolley and go to pay.

AND THEN when you think that’s it, they have a hot dog bar by the exit.

Stop scrolling.

Think of one task you need to complete today.

Go right now and do it.

Then you can continue scrolling.

Go on, you’ll feel so much better for it. :)

I also had a chocolate craving but I addressed that by eating a 100g bar at 9.30 in the morning. My day started just after 5, that makes it nearly lunchtime as far as I’m concerned. ;)

I’m not normally one to think about the big stuff that’s going on in the world, but for some reason today everything just feels so hopeless and sad.

My old dog having to be put to sleep today because she has cancer. We brought her home as a puppy, she’s always been there, and I went over to my parents just now and they’re digging a hole in the garden, and she can’t even get out of her bed.

A (very) distant relative having a late termination as her baby only has a 30% chance of surviving birth, and would then need 3 heart operations almost immediately just to have a chance of living to be 10. I can’t even begin to imagine how it must feel to make a choice like that. I barely know this woman but I can’t stand to think of what she’s going through today.

Children and adults in Iraq being violently murdered because of their religion. Horrible IS propaganda pictures littering Facebook and tumblr.

A child needing round the clock care taken out of a hospital and the country by his parents.

Ebola destroying families in Africa. On top of everything else they have to contend with in some of those countries, never mind the rumours being spread that it’s a hoax leading to God knows how many more people suffering.

The list is endless, child abuse scandals, murder, rape, slavery, war, famine, human rights meaning nothing, illness, tragic accidents, terrorism… It’s overwhelmingly depressing and I don’t know why it’s all in my head today.
