Far away from this big town - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

Far away from this big town
Whoah! We're going to IKEA.

Next weekend, to be precise. It looks like we're not taking a van, as we only need smallish stuff, and the big stuff that we were going to shift with the oh anyway it all turned into a faff. So, Cambridge people, if you want something from IKEA that will fit in a Renault 5, let me or addedentry know before Saturday.

We will need to know:

- catalogue name/number
- any applicable colour/design options
- any acceptable substitutes
- your inside leg measurement (we're just nosey)
- you're beginning to think you might as well just bloody well go yourself, aren't you?

The ads recently were for the new Milton Keynes IKEA.

Are you going to the Milton Keynes branch? That's only just up the road from us, you know...

We are. Edmonton is a bit nearer, but the promotions for the new Milton Keynes store sidled up to us, whispering promises into our collective ear of clean Scandinavian lines in a city of clean Scandinavian lines, and we were seduced.

It's not often we'd get the chance to say, oh, we were just passing, so be warned that we might take your query as an invitation. And if you'd like a SVIKLITT or a VESTBODA...

We'll probably be in for much of the afternoon, so feel free to pop round for a cuppa/absinthe if you have the inclination.

I'm quite happy with the KNIVIG and BILLYs that we have, thanks!

Bother, the branch at Milton Keynes has suffered from the rush and doesn't have all the items we want (or are buying for other people) in stock.

We'll have to drop by another time - j4 often drives through Milton Keynes en route to Oxford, and after all Bedfordshire does advertise itself as 'central to the Oxford-Cambridge arc'.

Never mind - hope we can see you both soon!
