Ingvar Kampard - who founded IKEA - visited the store last week ... boy was there excitement !! Not to mention the amount of hard work and preparation invovled in having someone as important as that visiting us. You could well be forgiven in thinking that it was the second coming !!
Some photos from the day ...
I managed to actually get a shot of 'Our Mary' - one of the hardest workers I have ever met. She hardly ever stops still ... will often forget that she is due a break and is like a little whorlwind in the department. Needless to say we all love her!!
This is Gary - going to be a pilot when he 'grows up'!!
Charlotte - originally from Sweeden herself - I think she is coming around to the Irish sense of humour and feeling more comfortable around us!! God help Her !!
The Man himself - chatted away - bad mike - we couldn't quite make out what he was saying :-( ... so when he asked if there were any questions !! I think people were afraid to ask in case he had just told us the answer ....!!
Getting the group photo set up .... Ingvar is 83 now and he just popped down on the floor ready to go !! Hope I am able to do that at that age ...
