… was my first thought today when I brought my new coffee table home!
I had a productive morning today! I woke up waaay too late, spent my normal hour in bed drinking tea, eating my cereal and web surfing. Yes, that is how I start every day – breakfast in bed rocks!
Then I finally got some mojo and got going. My lovely parents gave me a $50 Loot gift voucher for my birthday after I eyed off a throw my mum had bought there. So, I went off to shop. On the way, I remembered to stop at Bunnings and get a big bag of potting mix for my poor little tomato seedlings – they’re growing way too big for their little pot!
Then I managed to find Loot and invest in a throw like my Mum’s – but in a lovely blue/brown whereas hers is purply..
And then… I decided that it was high time we had a coffee table. I’m sick of putting my tea or empty plate on the ground and being paranoid that the cat will think it is a little treat!
So, I stopped by the Lifeline secondhand store. For those of you who don’t know, Lifeline is a great charity here in Oz that runs helplines for people in need, who need to talk about things that are troubling them.
So, I wanted to buy something from a place where my money would actually go to some good use! Lucky for me, they had just the thing!
I love it! But it does seem enourmous in our little living room. It’s actually not a table, but a big wooden linen chest, have a look..
And you know the bestest part of all?? It’s hollow! So, I finally moved all of my stuff off the couch and into the chest – nice and neat! (How long that will last is another question).
How awesome is that!
Also, I made another purchase with my voucher that will quickly become dear to my heart. You see, I am a mad tea drinker. And I have no truck for those stupid little cups people seem to use. No way. I need a bloody big mug! Sadly, I smashed my mug of tea love a few weeks ago, and was managing to subsist by using Nick’s, since he’s away. But I have now rectified the situation in my muggy-cat-loving-way…
Ahh, all is now right with the world!!
Peace out, lovelies!
