A friend and I were recently granted leave passes from our families for a weekend of shopping in Melbourne.
This is a big ask really as weekends are pretty top heavy with sporting commitments at the moment.
Miss B was most unimpressed. She kept asking me "why did I have to go",
I explained it was a bit like school camp for Mums.
I said 'remember how you love going on school camp, to be with your friends and have fun doing things you enjoy. I probably wouldn't enjoy it.
Well a shopping trip is the same. I will have fun shopping, and doing things you probably would be bored doing." It was like a light bulb moment for her. She got it! Yay!
This was our major destination.
It was like a military operation.
we had lists, plans, timetable, the works.
We did a reccy on the Saturday, then a concentrated assault on the Sunday.
We limited our shopping to only home wares.
Clothing would have confused us and there wasn't time for idle browsing.
I fell in love with the red pendant light. But didn't buy it.
I did buy the kitchen trolley.
I have the perfect spot for it.
(or I will when I move a few things around ;)
Just to prove us country chicks know how to shop.
Here is the ute all loaded up.
We threw in dinner and a movie and a huge breakfast.
We both maxed out the credit card
and had lots of laughs.
I am still putting everything away.
