We picked up some produce at the South Melbourne Market and then headed to IKEA. We picked out a few pieces of furniture but failed to consider one tiny detail- we don't have a car. So, after going to the warehouse portion and testing out the weight of the items we selected, it became pretty clear that we would need IKEA to deliver them. Fine, except that we didn't have a kitchen table and that was sort of an immediate need. But never fear, the black Lack side table to the rescue! At $7.99, I have to admit that it's quite the steal and, most importantly, small enough to carry on the tram. I am convinced I hold the record for total number of black IKEA Lack side tables ever perchased. I went through at least 4 in college, and we had 2 in our apartment in Springfield. Every time I move, I ditch the Lack side table, thinking it's finally time to upgrade and swearing I'll never need it again, and every time I end up buying a new one.
I assembled the table while Peter cooked, and we had basil pesto and chicken pasta using ingredients we got at the market. The set up was a little amateur, but hey, it's better than eating on the floor!
