Today we took a trip out to Weston Super Mare which is about an hour from home.





It has been several years since we last went there, what a cheek if you want to go on the pier you have to pay a £1 each now. So we left that.

We had a lovely day just strolling around, we went into loads of charity shops, but as usual the prices were ridiculous, I have found a really good one now at home and I go there a few times a week now.


I lost some more weight last week, and seeing as it was a day out a treat was allowed.



On the way back we stopped off in Bristol.
We went to Ikea, we have never been there before.

Sorry if the pics are a bit blurry I was so busy dashing here and there so much to see.




Love this....



My hubby said he would quite like one of these.




This is a hob extractor fan.





There was so much to see I soon gave up taking photos, if you want ideas and inspiration it's certainly the place to go, and the prices were very good, we spent two and a half hours looking around.

We only made a few purchases, new shower tidy, I found a really nice wooded chopping board for £6 and a lovely apron in the sale for £2.50.

It was a lovely day out.

  2. Nice to see photos from WSM, we lived therefor years, left 20years ago. I love IKEA, but we always overspend.

  3. Have never been to IKEA looking at the photos I'm glad about that, wouldn't do the bank balance much good.

    1. If money where no object it would be very tempting.

  4. I once did over 10,000 in IKEA! Great for the weightloss effort!

  5. I've only ever been to IKEA once. It was huge! A bit overwhelming but some great practical ideas. Weston-super-mare looks good and seasidey. I wonder why they charge to go on the pier. X

    1. It was overwhelming, but very interesting, it is a bit cheeky charging to go on the pier, that doesn't really encourage people xx

  6. Tony and I stayed in WSM earlier this year. We spent a lot of time wandering around the charity shops too. I have only ever been to IKEA once but oh what a treat. I could have spent a small fortune. If I should ever win the lottery, my craft room will be 100% IKEA. Their storage solutions are fantastic

  7. Ikea was great for really low budget items setting up homes for the girls when they left to start university. Looks like a fun day out.

  8. Weston, that's where you walk out miles across mud flats to the sea, innit? Only joking, but we have a Big Wheel in Torquay for the summer, just around the coast from where we live. Went on this the year before last, it was fun! The views of Torbay from up high were am-az-ing, but then, it's a very beautiful place, it's nice for almost any angle (I'm speaking of the harbour area and the marina, the town needs regenerating like so many towns.)

    1. Hello Margaret, I am not that brave to go on the big wheel, but saying that I have been on many cable cars. The town like many as you say needs regenerating.

  9. We've driven the 300 miles to WSM a few times when our youngest daughter and her friends used to go to the T4 on the beach thing. We would drop them off and spend the day there. The last time we went they were doing major works on the seafront. Also the pier was free. Nice for a day out but I wouldn't fancy a week there! I remember the sand sculptures which were brilliant. Isn't that where Banksy has/had an exhibition or am I getting mixed up?

    1. Yes I remember the sand sculptures, not sure about Banksy xx

  10. I live about 10 minutes away from IKEA so we probably go there about once a month. My DH hates it because he feels like he has to walk for miles (you have to learn where the shortcuts are!). We have lots of bookcases from there and lots of kitchen/office type stuff. There are some grocery things I get there that you can't get anywhere else and the cafeteria is really reasonable for a decent meal.

    1. I will be going there again sometime, we had a cup of tea there and I noticed the food prices were good.
