Look at this cute little car - it is a car with a moped motor and has moped license plates - and is only allowed to go 40 km (which is about 30 mph). It can't go on the highways, but is great for the inner city - especially when it comes to parking. We saw this car today at Ikea - not sure WHAT the owner thought he was going to buy... a lightbulb maybe? Ha, ha - when I had a little Geo Tracker my Mom would call it my "Budget Mobile" because I never could buy anything big! Small cars are common over here, but this is the first time I've seen one this small - Little Boy declared it "just my size"!
A nice thing about Ikea over here is that they have a wonderful play room for children over the age of 3... It wasn't too busy there today so we left Little Boy to play for a bit... they give you a phone and call you if you are needed, phew. I think I was a bit more worried about the whole thing than my son was, but he did wonderfully well and played happily for over 1/2 an hour before they called me - he was starting to miss his Momma! And - he had so much fun and now knows that Momma will come right back - that he wants to go again another day. I did manage to get a cabinet that I went for... but didn't manage to get Christmas napkins - hence the Valentine's Day napkins in the next photo...
We had fondu tonight... it is our lazy dinner as we buy many different little prepared salads... tonight we had egg salad, wurst salad (think bologna salad here?), curry carrot salad, tuna, and mixed veggie/mayo salad with green salad, bread, pickles... and horseradish sauce for dipping the pork/chicken into - yummy! The salads make great snacks/suppers during the week. We usually do fondu every Friday night in the winter, but are thinking about going to town tomorrow to enjoy the Christmas market so we had it tonight instead. We won't have fondu next Friday because we are having a big Christmas fondu.
A final note: I am a Beta Blogger as of last night. My blog seems to have switched over fairly well intact, except many of the previous comments have lost the author information and are now just showing as anonymous. I had to switch because all of a sudden I wasn't able to leave comments myself anymore and that was frustrating. Then, it took me a while to figure out that my "User Name" is no longer the user name I've always used - but rather it is my e-mail address... so for anyone else out there who may be having trouble signing in to the new Beta - try using your e-mail address instead of user name and see if that works.
