Now, let us know a little about you.




Yes, that’s right, IKEA.  Today we went to IKEA.  I’m not sure if that means much to any of you, but it does to our family.  IKEA and our family have a special relationship.  IKEA was our first and most frequent babysitter in Germany.  Nearly half of everything in our house comes from IKEA. 

We were blessed by a friend who works at the new IKEA in Nicosia, by an invitation to Family Day.  We got a 10% discount on everything we bought, but that wasn’t the good part.  The good part was going some place so familiar.  After almost 7 months of new things it was a nice variation.  Even the meatballs tasted the same.

 The store officially opens next week.  We plan on going often.  Not only is it the only place we have found to eat out(even cheaper the giros), but the AC works great! 🙂
