I started the day talking things through with the estate agent regarding collection of keys on Saturday morning.
Then I went and bought three beds, a king size, a double and a single, all half price in the sale, £1000 all but £1 and 1penny!
I cannot wait to get into that bed it was sublime lying on it at 10.30am in all my layers, no player me.
Then I passed one of my bargain haunts, missed a waxed pine dining kit by a milli second, but scooped up 2 x 3 seater cottage sofa in a deep wine colour, enough wear in them for a few months until we decide on a new pairing.
At another favourite haunt I scooped a pine circular table and four chairs and a brand spanking looking side board thingy from ikea with seven drawers (I have its matching shelving unit) which will look good somewhere!
(This is a pic of new house- not good angle) I visited the new house twice, where the decorator was going great guns, I found it so satisfying standing watching, much longer than I should've to take in someone else hard at it! I measured the rooms and cupboards, utility area for appliances, I didn't manage to find time to buy today. I know for sure there are many out there in the shops and so I won't go without. My daughter was practically in tears, the soon to be her floor carpet was no longer black, someone had obviously gone in over the last week and changed it just to piss her (and so me) off. The purple walls are now , ' too girly, it's all pants. My room is crap!' Is it really oh dear.
My son and daughter then dragged me into a Mountain something specialist shop, to buy walking gear for my son. I was told to shut up twice by both son and daughter, as I was 'embarrassing' them!!
I can only assume they noticed I was breathing out fire through my nostrils and must have been dancing the dance of the seven veils on the cash counter, which is code for asking the guy for help, a thing they wouldn't do as it's so not cool! I guess carrying the debit card to buy these items is acceptable though.
I then rewarded their petulance and rudeness by getting them a McDonalds, I was too tired to cook. Back to work tomorrow, so much to do.
