Best. Day. Ever
Don't you love it when you wake up expecting nothing from the day ahead and it turns into the best day ever? It wasn't even on purpose.
Monday started out as an ordinary day off. I slept in, probably too long to be honest, but its what I do on my days off. Then, for no apparent reason, I got breakfast in bed - eggs, toast, hashbrown and bacon. Admit it your salivating reading this aren't you? If I'm truthful I kind of ruined the surprise of breakfast in bed by waking up and getting out of bed, but upon being told I was going to get breakfast in bed I got back upstairs and back into bed real quick. Can't miss out on these things because of minor technicalities, it wouldn't be fair. By the way breakfast was awesome.
Then we went to check out the new Masters store. I went there thinking it was going to be just another hardware store, but turns out its a massive store filled with pretty much everything I love. Its got your traditional hardware gear, tools, appliances, bathroom stuff, flooring, doors, paint and my favourite - wall art & clocks. I lasted over an hour in there without getting bored, and I'm a woman. Its like Bunnings + Good Guys + Ikea all in the one place. If you're in Australia you know what I mean, if you're not then refer to previous description above. I spent about $800 so I should probably limit my trips there in the future (the same as I have to limit my trips to Ikea).
Afterwards I was content with going home to catch up on some housework I had been putting off for the past few days. However, half way home T (my boyfriends crap pseudonym for here) asked if I wanted to go visit my nieces. Stupid question really, when do I ever not want to see the babies? So, on top of breakfast in bed and a trip to my new favourite store I also got to stop in and play with Elouise and Izzy for an hour. Kids are so much fun, seriously. So many cuddles and kisses. It was even funny, mildly hilarious actually, when Elouise started telling me off while pointing her finger at me. Not fun however when my brother decided to shoot me to death with a nerf gun. Seriously why are guys obsessed with nerf guns? I dont get it.
Anyway, what I thought was going to be an ordinary day laying about the house infact turned into the best day ever. You will be happy to know that in the end when I did get home I still mopped and vaccuumed the house instead of laying about exhausted (which is what I wanted to do). We then hung all of the prints that I'd bought for the house.
What I learnt was I love breakfast in bed - I think we should do that more often. Shopping is fun when its for house stuff. I cant wait to have kids. Decorating makes me happy. And, putting all these individual things together in the one day creates unrivalled happiness and makes T the best boyfriend ever!
Never underestimate how much happiness little things can bring you.
