So we’re decorating. The last few weeks have been really hectic for my wife and I, we’ve been redoing our outdoor area where we want to have barbecues and stuff. I begrudginly went along shopping for different homewares and outdoor decorating supplies with my wife, but I actually ending up having quite a good time. We spent the whole day jumping from shop to shop trying to find unique little things we can use to spice up the place. The first place we stopped was this small op-shop, a sort’ve charity place where they sold all manner of pre-loved things. Lot’s o knick-knacks and tchotchkies from years gone by, it smelt a bit funny but my wife insisted that we stay until she had scoured the entire place searching for something that she wouldn’t know until she saw it. Gladly, it wasn’t too large of a stall and we headed off to our next destination within half an hour.
The next place we went was much more my speed, an actual store with new things. They sold all sorts of very creative versions of common decorative items. There were these lovely wind chimes that I ended up buying, they were made of such a nice wood that I couldn’t resist. The last shop we went to before calling it a day and grabbing a coffee was a little family run store that specialised in cuckoo clocks. They had all types of these marvelous contraptions that all seemed to be slightly off time, so the shop was very loud every hour. They were a little out of our price range but we ended up buying one of the smaller ones for our living area.
After the cuckoo shop we decided that we needed some R & R so we grabbed a coffe at my favourite place and headed on home.
