New House

Postby DJ » Thu Dec 02, 2004 10:14 am

Just exchanged on my new flat in Tynemouth yesterday, going to be moving from the stinking city centre to a view of Black Middens from the end of my road - GET IN!! now i'm going to be able to pull dawnies every day and get to go surfing all the time without annoying the missus cos I'm either (a) away all weekend, (b) using the car (c) never have time for her etc etc etc. Best of both worlds, buying for the first time with the lady I love by the sea!!!

Can't wait, especially as if the waves are going to be as good as they were last weekend, surfed the point off tynemouth beach at head high and clean - awesome.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

already had my girlfriend say to me last night "wouldn't it be nice to get the flat decorated before christmas...." with that look that says "you're so good at DIY and decorating, you know you are" Damn.....

I actually don't mind it, just as long as its flat....

sorry :lol: :lol: Yeah thought about that but not sure we can afford it really having spent all our savings to get the 10% deposit on the house. As I said, I don't mind really and I worked as a decorator for a while so I'm not so bad at it.

Like the idea of a professional tea maker though, could keep him/her/it in the kitchen cupboard and call on them when needed, like a tea gnome....

i was thinkingmore of a greasy spoon canavan in your driveway, that way you'd get bacon buttys too :D

SO how many visits has you misses had to ikea since moving in?

I find it amazing that my wife thinks a 2hr drive to tynemouth is mad yet the same distance to Ikea is normal :?: :?:

I think it's a chick thing

I like it, then you could make money too getting your tea gnome to sell butties to the neighbours - talk about raising the tone of the neighbourhood 8)

We've been through all the Ikea thing already when we moved up 6 months ago to a rented place, I swear that if there is a hell it is the Metrocentre on a Sunday afternoon, and yet they enjoy it so much and force you to go when you're really hungover :evil: :evil:

cold you not be cunning and get her to drop you at tynemouth whilst she goes off and does Ikea, it takes at least a couple of hours just to get in and out of the metrocentre, let alone look round Ikea!

Quite simply, Ikea is where you go when you pop yr clogs if you've been a *bad* person, imo. My ex dragged me there when she wasn't yet my ex. I think it marked the start of the downward spiral...

I did however steal a fistful of those wee ikea pencils and have one on my desk right now...

wee ikea pencils


my son and daughter went round picking up all the pencils on the floor, lying around, i think they found over 50, they took them to the lady at the help desk so they could be recycled who told them they'd just be thrown out and to keep 'em

I thought swedes were environmentally aware :?:

Ikea is the devils work. The only fun is to be had is hiding in wardrobes and scaring children and the elderly. The breakfast is preety good mind, but considering u only got dragged in to ....'look' by the missus and part with the best part of £100 on candles and plants and soft cushions they should do the food for free.

Paddy i've been reliably informed that candles and cushions benefit the whole household and encourage being together, but surfboards are selfish items for people who want to go off and please themselves :wink:

yeah thats a whole other thread or 2. Ideally a girlfriend who surfs as much as I do...or who like to spend time reading in a van by the sea. Have yet to find either.

ROFLMAO :D :D the problem is that if you did that up in Newcastle you'd get an irate Geordie granny trying to rip your head off!

I've never dared go into the restaurant in Ikea, by the time I get that far I just want to get the hell out and face fighting more grannies in the loading bays - possibly the most stupid invention ever not being able to take large items to your car but havign to wait for every other bugger :evil:

My mate went to Ikea once with his little brother (12) who managed to eat 8 ikea meatballs then threw them up in the bedroom department, probably some sort of non violent protest if you ask me.

Slop, let me know next time you're making a dash for freedom! :D :D

Is that the reason she is your ex, or was it your laser eyed cat which killed her, and she is residing under your patio. Is that what they mean by building a relationship on firm foundations?
