Dead right ........ I've been searching for a two door cabinet with a shelf in it preferably in rustic pine style for months now for a specific purpose, but have not found anything suitable anywhere

Hmm and probably never will in a Spanish shop.

However, try Michaels in Javea. Went in there once with a friend and was full of it.

In Abu Dhabi it sells a 1dh ice cream. 1dh!! That's abut 17p. The nearest comaprable icecream in AD would cost you 6x as much. I was blown away..

Nothing here costs 1dh

I also ought to add that the wife has been piling on the pressure to go to Ikea Murcia now for years, and I just cant pluck up the courage

*I mean seriously stressful, dreadful, quite appalling, to be avoided at all costs. I'd rather have a root canal job with no anaesthetic than set foot in one of those blue torture chambers ever again. I cannot imagine why anyone would want to subject themselves to such a nasty experience.

And the names of the products "Jerker" desk, "Fukta" plant spray and "Fartfull" workbench - jeez -
I can never figure out why Bush sent all those guys to Gauntanamo, when Ikea could have served the same purpose quite nicely.
A few hours in there and I'm sure they'd have coughed to anything.
