New car!

After millions of hours of consideration of which car to get – we finally gave up and asked dad to help us look for a used one. Originally we wanted a new car – we even went and test drove a few models, ended up falling in love with one..buuut our finances cant carry it right now. SO we started to look for used cars – but very slow and its a little tough, because we live on an island.

Dad proved himself very worthy of the task – a week later he had a friend who was selling this dark metallic blue Opel Vectra.  We took a chance and went down to get it – a choice we havent had any second thoughts about yet!  Its a really nice deal for the amount we payed!  Which is 11.500kr (price was 14.000 but he gave us 2500 back and said we should spend them on fixing some things, like a thinghy thing so it dosnt sound like a V8 engine when driving haha)

Its an Opel Vectra 1.6L from 1998  Station wagon

Got 4 winter-tires for it too.

Its a so called “2-year car” – if it goes through inspection next time, good for us (pretty sure it will – nothing really major wrong with it) then we have it for another 2 years.

Our pretty new veteran car!

Have 3 tiny scratches (not visible on the picture) on the back-flap – but its so minor you barely notice it. Thats about it – Quite amazed how good it stands out after a decade of age!

Loooooove space! And the black protection thing is just lovely – and much easier to clean than the fabric underneath it.

Pretty ok space in the backseat. And its well kept considering how old the car is

Wondeful seat fabric…not! But i will buy a thinghy to put over so its easier to slide in and out of the car

It has Cruise Control, A/C and a cd-player wuhu! (we just need to figure out how the CC works..)






A trip to Ikea

Went to Ikea yesterday – got a few things. Havent bothered taking pictures of all it. But the small stuff is here:D  (the bigger borring things are another shelf for our shed outside, 2 clothing-holding furnitures and a cloth rack to hang your dryclean on…wuhu)

So cheap! 15 kr for 6 parts. Got bowls, plates, utensils and cups – And its very colorfull which i think is perfect for babies who gets stimulated alot by it.

Its made for people with small children!

droolers – cant have too many of that. (and i love Ikea – if they get too filthy, i can toss them without feeling too guilty – and buy new ones!)

My new dinner room set weeee – been sighing for this for a looong time (ever since i saw it first time like 3 years ago!) And yesterday was time to finally buy it. Its super pretty and im sooo happy.

A bigger plate- same brand as my new dinner set. Imagine to put fruit or cake etc on it – its huge and pretty

We are lacking an oven bowl thing, that isnt so big it can feed 4 people! Sometimes we just need to make a “dinner for 2” dish – so this fits perfect! Ive layed down a fork in it, so its easier to see its measurements.

Napkins! And protector thingies to put under a hot pan etc.

Nightlamp – Instead of turning on ALL light for changing our girl or feeding etc, during night – this is more soft and gentle (and cute!)

Under-the-bed-roller-box. With a little baby coming our space is getting limited, so this cool solution have solved a few issues. 75kr and its quite big.

Our new dinner room table lamp. Really been looking for a pretty one for a long time, and Ikea just got a full set of this type – Will post pics later when its up and hanging (need some cable stuff first) and its cheap! 149kr!

Neck pillow… its awesome! (and i get flashbacks from when i was a little kid, out driving longer distances, me and bro had one each in grey.. *memories* )
