When the back is killing me…

For the past week or so, my back has been giving me so much discomfort. So much that the thought of sitting there in front of my PC to blog {or to chat} scares the heck out of me.

It’s the chair. The chair that I was sitting on was so uncomfortable that I almost break into two! So I decided that I can’t tolerate it anymore and went to IKEA to find something good for my spine.

As usual, Darling will drop both Ethan and I there and proceed to work. So I need to get Ethan as organize as possible as I’ll be handling him alone!
The only way to keep him from running around is to get him seated in the trolley.

Now, first thing I do is read the chart about the functions and features for comfort and support.

Then, browse through the list of chairs and see what ‘functions’ comes with it.Next, ‘cuba, try, test’… But then got hungry…So go buy food first.. A plate of vegetarian pasta. Pay first… RM5.But then the cashier told me that if I add another dollar, can get this chocolate bar! So pay~lah! One ringgit only! ^^ Ahh.. my boy is super happy here. Eeek? Eating and watching tv at the same time? Kids dining in IKEA are spoilt to the max! :PThen after that meal, let him have some fun first as he has been very good letting me test all the chairs that I wanted to try. IKEA is very toddler friendly…

Finally, back to my chair. Since ‘da boss’ says YES to this, I took this chair home. Actually, it was not as simple as that. I’ve tested so many chairs there. I started with those with lumbar support but too bad they don’t suit me {or people of my height}. What, they think only tall people need lumbar support eh?

But never mind. I find this chair accommodates my height just nice and pretty comfortable too. So buy~lah. It’s definitely so much better than the one that that has been ‘killing my spine’ at home!

The two naughty boys in action. Treating the trolley like a skateboard! Eesh, eesh, eesh..
You know when you watch an action movie? The police force appears only after the Hero has single-handedly over powered a million crooks? That’s exactly what my Darling did. LOL. He came later only to help pick up the chair and of course, pay for it! :D
And of course, IKEA trip can never be complete without the curry puffs!
And what happen to the instruction manual? It is now Ethan’s colouring book.. blek!

    always practice good posturing, then it will be all right,most of the time we never realized that in fact we have tortured our backs with our funny positions,,,,,

    What a fun filled day at Ikea. Everytime we go there, it's all in a mad rush to see what we want. No opportunity to go all the time ma..

  • //

    I just recovered from a very bad backache and backside ache. I realised is not the chair but more of our posture and sitting for too long. So make sure you sit up right and take a break off from the chair every 15 mins.

  • //

    how did u temp Ethan to wearing a watch? cos everytime I put on a watch for Philip, he removes it.. :(No comments on IKEA chairs!

  • //
