If there are two things I love to play with, it's IKEA and LEGO. Both start as kits with a predefined purpose but there are so many possibilities. My two step-sons have birthdays coming up and they love LEGO. The problem is, while we have room for them to play, we really don't have a space where they can leave their LEGO set up so they can return to their games and adventures. So, we set out to create a portable play centre where they could store their LEGO and keep it assembled. Naturally, that led to a trip to the local IKEA.

Some people love the challenge, the meditative peace of wordless instructions and 50 tiny bags of tiny screws. But some of us scream at the mere sight of a hex key. Depending on which group you fall into, this is either a challenge or a warning to stay far, far away.

I'm about to set up a new home office so, naturally, I visited my local IKEA for inspiration and ideas. And, I'm also keen to get the new iPhone X when it's available later this year (yeah, I know it's expensive and all that but I'm entrenched in the iOS ecosystem and it's so shiny and new). And that means I can take advantage of IKEA's range of office gear that integrates Qi wireless charging.
