We are going to Turku today or The Story About the Kitchen Chairs

Post by caysa on Thu Jun 25, 2009 7:17 am

We are going to Turku today!!
Its only about 100 kms away but it is Finland 3rd biggest town Laughing



The reason to go there is this:


And here is the story....
A few years ago we bought 4 chairs from Ikea. We did not have much money to spend on them and this one happend to be the cheapest and the one i liked the most. We have a pretty big kitchen dining table but on one long side we have a wooden sofa.
Now I am fed up with that sofa. It does not fit in under the table so it takes up a lot of space and even worse - Ansa gets up on the sofa and from there on to the table affraid !! And she is a real BEAGLE - she does not listen. Or atleast she will jump up there as soon as I turn my back.... The sofa has to go!!
SO... I get on Ikeas home page... and...... they dont have the red chairs anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now what do I do??? I cant afford to buy all new chairs!!!
Then I get on our local Ebay pages.... and... someone has put up 6 red chairs for aution!!!! YAY!!!
But when i start reading.... That auction ran out the day before.... :scratch:
Now I am really MAD!!!
By digging into it a bit I see that there was not one bid on them.... so the chairs were not sold....
I finally found out how to PM the seller.... AND WOHOOO, she is selling 6 chairs for 70 euros!!
So now we will end up with 10 chairs lol! But thats ok! 8 is what we need when we all have dinner together... and in 2 years little Siiri will need a chair too!!

Are you all happy for me???

I sure hope so!!! It can be soooo annoying!! I am not a clean freak - i'm not afraid of a little dirt lol!

But.... let's say - on a day that I bake, which happens quite often - I need the kitchen table too, usually i have the oven trays there with buns or bread or whatever, that are rising - or cooling down after beeing baked. I do NOT want the dogs to eat THAT!!! So I feel I have been constantly needing eyes in the back of my head too! Now I can relax a bit flower
