Then I thought I might give myself a challenge and buy something it felt a bit like being a contestant on the UK antiques show where they have a set amount of money and have to buy things to get auctioned. So off I went with $14 in hand.
The first thing I bought was a little glass lidded bowl that matches a bigger one I have in the bathroom, I got it for $5, then I found a colclough plate in great condition for $4. That left me with $5 I saw some boy and girl lucky dips for $1 each and got each on the children one and one lady had 4 doily's of $1 so I have $1 left over. (Each of the girls got a cute handbag full of bling and a stuffed puppy, Aiden got a shark, superman and trading cards)
There were some lovely things there and some were very over priced, I am sure all the bargains were gone by the time I got there at 11:30am. I had a nice time it was good to have a break.
Onto the second item. Last night hubby decided to come home as he finished at work earlier than planned so at 9:30 he arrived to surprise me. My sister in law had just left, we had just spent 2 hours moving the bedroom around only to end up with it the way it was to begin with.
So my surprise Anniversary gift was not finished and all my plans were wrecked. I was a little disappointed as I had worked so hard and really wanted to spoil him.
So since he has now seen the bedroom here are the photos. I still need to do a bit to get it to where I want it.

Hubby goes back to Brisbane tonight and will be back Sunday night so I will still do some of what I had planned for him. It just won't be the same. Oh well
