That was part of today’s events..a trip to the Ikea store at Rhodes Shopping Centre…went with three of the kids and one of the friars from our parish.
It was a pretty funny outing. At one stage, I was flying, er, I mean driving, the car up the exit ramp . Saw a minimum height barrier ~ obviously meant for trucks and vans not station wagons like my car. Yet, I instinctively worried about height – would my car fit under the barrier? And I instinctively ducked my head, while sitting in the car driving ~ as if that would help!
The funny, funny, thing is that Br., in the front passenger seat, instinctively did the same ducking ( useless, redundant) motion, at precisely the same time as I.
Gosh, we laughed. And laughed. Tears rolling down our faces.
The kids looked at us in amazement.
And Thomas texted his friend – “I think Mum is blonde”.
