I have done some shopping this past week and the results have been mixed.
I am very pleased with this white towel set, although I never would have bought it if it hadn’t been on a substantial sales discount. I mean, who wants to pay $49 for one bathroom towel, regardless of how soft and well-made it is?
My worst purchase was two punnets of strawberries from our local supermarket. Not having my glasses on I thought the berries were pale because they were a little unripe. Wrong!
They were pale and very mushy because they had been incorrectly stored. I would hazard a guess they had actually been frozen – and they were totally inedible.
I have been wanting some Dubonnet for a pre-dinner aperitif but nobody seems to stock it locally. Online shopping to the rescue!
I purchased two bottles, plus a bottle of gin to mix with it, from a store in Wellington and it arrived by courier within 40 hours. Excellent service from the Moore Wilsons Company.
We have had a sunny Saturday here today, with a bit of a breeze and a few clouds. I was amazed in the morning to see two blackbirds feasting on the feijoa tree. Hopefully they weren’t destroying the flowers!
Enjoy your weekend 😊
