Recycling our Christmas Tree

This year we decided to buy our Christmas tree at Ikea due to their recycling program. We paid 20 euros for it and we just returned it and got a 19 euros voucher. Ikea will turn the returned Christmas tree into compost.

The return process got a bit messy though. As usual the car park was overcrowded since it is Saturday and it is on sale period. Hubby dropped me at Ikea's entrance and I went all the way to where we got the tree, just to be told that I need to go to the underground car park. The car park was very big and I didn't know which direction to go. After a while hubby still couldn't find a parking spot so he called me and decided to pick me up and go to the recycling site together. Unfortunately he couldn't find a place to just stop the car as there were heavy traffic. It took me at least 15 minutes to eventually got into the car with the tree (plus I didn't hear my cell ring even though he tried calling me 10 times just to arrange a spot to get into the car).

When we finally returned the tree we got all irritated by the crowd and decided to go to another Lerclerc for grocery shopping. We will try to avoid going near Atlantis shopping center on Saturday again.

Anyway, before I got home, I got a call from my aunt saying that Aelig was hungry. Ok got to rush home to feed the baby, such is my new life, have to play the role as milk cow every 2-3 hours!
