Reverse Travel Journal 1 – Day 10: IKEA

Today i went to our local Ikea store (don’t worry, it was a r&h funded trip) to buy chairs for the market. But while i was there (now you should worry) i bought a desk for $30! (Although it is a work expense so i should be able to claim it). Ikea really is the way of the future. No sales assistants, everyone going in the same direction, it’s so… organised. And you’ll be glad to know i somehow resisted the sensual allure of the $1 hot dog. I left Lucy at home alone in the house for the first time while i was gone. When i came back nothing was ruined, bitten or broken and i was very proud.

We went for a walk in the arvo. It was a really nice day again which to me is a sign that i’m doing everything right in life. We ran into a few dogs on the way but Lucy got so excited and started panting hard core and it frightened the dogs, and their owners. But on a positive note she is getting used to the places we go; the coffee shop, Woolies the post office and sits out the front without whinging. She’s also getting better at sitting before crossing the road and when I stop to take pics.

Little did Lucy know that Uncle Jarry and Uncle Ady where waiting at the house when we got back. She was pretty excited.

I think you know by now (and are uber jealous) that we all enjoyed a super delicious meal at Rocksia. The boys enjoyed cocktail hour watching the Bulldogs vs St George. Bulldogs won of course 28-20. This is what you missed out on…mmmmmmm…

The journey to Newtown was epic. After picking up brant and leaving the car at the station we caught a train, stopped off for a beer, caught another train and didn’t end up getting there till 11.30pm.

Highlights of the night : Jarryds catch cry “gamble, GAMBLE!”, Brants favourite song : Blow my whistle, beer skulling through a straw competition and Jarryd shuffle dancing for male attention.
