Next time you are dragged to Ikea, it is worth looking for this, it is a useful multipurpose 71cm x 35cm tray for tools or even a drip tray, it is quite sturdy and a bargain at £1.95 imho http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/text ... -60329711/

Looks like a good one Tom. The trouble is you have to go to Ikea!

Last time I went (2006) it took me ages to get out and there was no veggie option in the restaurant.

Duncan,
I agree, it is an annoying business. You have to go a mile zigzag to the check-out.
But there is a webshop. Saves a lot of nuisance.

Tom,
How do you fit it under the nose to catch drips, my engine is oil tight thanks.
Like the dimples they will stop food sliding about

You haven't discovered the wormholes that allow you to bypass the zigzags. There are unmarked doorways short circuiting the zig zags which I think are there for the employees - saves them walking miles/km

A colleague of mine (and thier toddler) was dragged around thier local IKEA in the sales between christmas and new year - you can imagine how horrendous that would be.

Anyway, to keep his son quiet, he gave him the car keys to play with whilst sat in the trolley. Once they'd finished, got through the tills and returned to the car...

"Can I have the keys Jamie?"
"No daddy, I don't have them"
"What!?, where are they?"
"In a drawer daddy"

:lol:

They did find the keys in the end as they went back around with thier son who pointed out where he left the keys.

What is it about small children and car keys anyway....
