Day 1089 Ikea, the Little gift shop, coffee with a lovely friend and feet up!

Boom…. My day in one sentence. I slept really well but woke to a barking pupper about 6am. Of course they went back to sleep.

I randomly started my day with a trip to IKEA! I was picking up new shelves for the Little gift shop, Beith store.

The delivery costs were so high that I offered to go and pick up the shelves in the van….. all macho like and zero concept that they may be heavy…… they were awfy heavy!!

This is where the fun began. 😆

The first box was heavy but easy enough…. The second was sooooo heavy. By the time I got to the fourth and last box I had to ask for help. I was knackered. 😆

I got back down to Beith by 10.30 and we had a busy morning in the shop. I was working with Lindsay today as Gayle was in Lochwinnoch.

Big shop news today is that Gayle is going back down to 2 shops and is letting Dalry go. Elaine, who’s been working there is going to take it on by herself. Exciting times! Also can’t wait to see the space we have in Beith with the new shelves. Could have stayed today , built them and filled them all up 😂😂 I know, I need to get out more.

Speaking of getting out I met my lovely friend, Shelagh, for coffee after work. We went to the new Lochshore coffee shop which was really lovely. We had scones with butter and jam.

It was so great to catch up. Those of you who’ve been with me from the early days, might remember Shelagh as the lovely lady I went to for Health Kinesiology. She’s not been well but just looked so bright and fresh today. She was like a breath of fresh air. It was so lovely to see her and catch up on our news.

The Lochshore hub has sprung up from nowhere. It’s great to have a wee coffee shop down next to Kilbirnie Loch. No photos dammit!

I met Gayle afterwards, at the Beith shop and we unloaded the shelving units. So much easier with her muscles as well!

Popped into the Co-op on the way home to get some food for dinner and spotted this jar of coffee…. £9.35 a jar. I swear I bought this for £3.99 in Home Bargains less than a year ago.

That photo makes it look in like a big jar but it was just the 200g jar…. The normal size. I am horrified at a jar of coffee can be £9.35. Again you can tell I don’t get out much! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

I’ve had a lovely day but I’m tired now. Had wise all good though. Cam and relaxed.

I’m wrapped up in a crochet blanket with wee Freya right next to me.

Happy Saturday night!

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️

  1. So shocked at that coffee!! Just checked out Ocado and the same thing is £6. there. Very impressed with Ocado that they price match Tesco and give you money back after if your shop would have been cheaper at Tesco… Just checked and it would be £6.70 at Tesco, go Ocado!!! I should probably get a life too X

    1. Oh my god that is such a difference though. I always bought it at Home bargains as it was cheaper than anywhere else. Ocado does sound good. I don’t know if we have that up here!!? X
