Yesterday I made some banners out of bits of fabric from Ikea. We handed in the keys to our old places yesterday, and spent the rest of the day chilling, tidying and making pretty banners. :D I am very happy with the outcome, they bring a bit of colour and happiness into our little unfurnished home. One of the above photos will be my photo for today...I just haven't decided which yet, I love them all.
Today, was hot. Apparently the hottest day in history for Sydney. So much for my avoiding the heat. We did limit our exposure to the heat by spending 3 hours at the air-conditioned IKEA. We got ourselves a wardrobe whilst they were on sale, and a few other bits and bobs that we have realised we need but do not have. We also saved $30 using our little $10 off vouchers that have been coming through the post. It's supposed to be one per household, but a lot of our apartment neighbours have been just dumping theirs on a shelf with no interest, so we have slowly been accumulating them. We had 12, we now have 9. We sort of tag teamed today to make our 3 different purchases. We also giggled a lot at what we consider to be extreme sneakiness.
We didn't manage to avoid the heat altogether, as it was in the 40's when we were waiting for the bus. We were in the shade, and it still felt HOT. There was a breeze, but it was a hot breeze. We decided it felt a lot like sitting in front of a fire. It has now just tipped it down with rain, I don't think the weather knows what it's doing.
All in all, it's been a pretty awesome day.
We get a wardrobe tomorrow! It's has fancy mirror doors! Eeee!
