Anyway we were still out of the house at the crack of dawn and headed to Bristol where we multi-tasked. I became very grumpy indeed in Ikea. Remind me never to go there again on a Sunday. I thought an hour and a half would be plenty to dash round in a leisurely strolly kind of way and then meet Red Mel for meatballs in the 'canteen' there. Everything conspired against us accomplishing our mission in the time allowed. Our experience included two trips through those heaving checkouts and a visit to another building five minutes down the road to collect one item. Madness! On the plus side we managed to fit three bookcases, a desk and office chair, two floor lamps, a kitchen stool and bits and bobs in my tardis of a small side. Salty Dog has new curtains as well. She'd put in an order. I had doubts that it was going to fit but the trusty Citigo came up trumps.
The main aim of our day was to bagsie the last few Shaun the Sheep that we hadn't managed to find on two exhausting days running around Bristol. Time conspired against so we got tickets for the Great Sheep Round Up at Cribbs Causeway for our final sheep spotting spree of the year. Here's Lou with Buttercup, one of the eight we logged to complete the trail!
