We were at Ikea; I wanted to get a table lamp to work on my beading at night when bb sleeps. I let him play at a small children area in front of the customer service desk. He made friends with some kids there while me sitting at the long bench waiting for hub to finish his mail checking at the Starbucks. Our internet connection has been down for almost 2 weeks. He was very super pissed with the promising statement from TM net. “We will look into the matter” was what he gets for 2 weeks. I could hear him screwing them loud over the phone. Hubby can be very nasty at times. Again, who will not under this circumstance?
After half and hour wait, we walked over to see hub and bb pointed at a stall selling balloons in front of Starbucks. What lovely twisted balloon they have, so
colorful! There are flowers, pink panther, giraffe, poodle, and many more. Bb wanted the pink panther with flower but it cost $4, a little pricy. “Why not we buy a packet home and we do it ourselves?” He nodded with a YES! It is $5.90 for 30 balloons. “You need a pump for these”, the owner said. “I think we have one at home,” I told him. They even sell VCD on how to twist the balloons. (I will blog more about those twisted balloons)
Hubby is ready for a walk. We walked to a place selling indoor swimming pool with netball gear. There are some dogs training going on further down near wet cement area of the pool. We headed to Ikea straight for dinner. I had Salmon with broccoli; hubby and Sri had fish and chips. We got bb meatballs. He played with kids around TV while we savor our dinner. I do not like to eat there, as foods are not nice, there are not hot enough. It is just plain convenient.
Hubby bought bb a float, he does not own one previously. He plays with his embedded float swimming suit normally. He had great fun there. I must agree with all mothers that kids get tired after a swim. I bought him and hubby donuts, their favorite and chicken floss bun for myself. As usual, he showed the counter waiter his charming smile and friendly gestures. We went home for spaghetti before hitting the sack.
