Window shopping

We were going to go to cinema yesterday but there was nothing on we wanted to see so we went window shopping instead. Or if going to ikea and planning your ideal kitchen can be called window shopping! They are making the ikea here bigger so every now and then you come across this building site at the middle of the store...
Our kitchen dreaming came to the conclusion that we can have a really nice kitchen in the new house but it might be a bit step by step process, due to the limited finances students are known to have, i.e. move the existing cupboards to the other side of the room, knock down the wall, by some nice cabinets to replace some old ones, buy some more to make the breakfast bar etc. Estimated time of completion autumn 2008...
There is also a new furniture store that has just opened next to ikea and we went and had a look there as well. They had some nice sofas and lots of nice kitchen things and some nice rugs. It was nicer than ikea, little bit more expensive but not too expensive, and it was fun to just wander around the different departments & showrooms.
So overall we had a fun evening, probably more interactive and social than if we had gone to cinema but next Wednesday we are going to see the new bond film and we can be antisocial then...
We also planned our visit to Plymouth. We found out yesterday that we are likely to be completing on our house in Plymouth week on Friday, we also found out that they don't want to buy our old cooker. So we need to drive from one end of the country to the otherto pick up the cooker but that's ok because we can also see some friends at the same time :) We'll leave quite early tomorrow, go and see the estate agents in Plymouth, stay the might with Paul & Nikki, go and tidy up the house & unconnect the cooker on Saturday, see Tony & Nathan, drive to Beaconsfield, stayt he night with Rob & Gaenor, go and see Gaenor vicaring in the mornign and then drive back here to the land far far away.
