I remember when I first had my offer accepted way back in mid-June. Of course on the list of things to do were:
1. Sort mortgage
2. Get solicitors quotes
But honestly, the first thing I did… I went onto Wilko.com and added all things teal to my basket, I think I managed to amass £150 worth of goods. I looked forward to the day I could hit checkout.
Imagine my chagrin, when one week to go my basket is empty… ah yes, thank you c-cleaner for wiping my cookies.
Also add to frustration when a lot of things were out of stock. I took the opportunity when I found myself in store to pick up a few bits – “need this colander, it’s out of stock online”.
Sadly my mother would only allow to buy what could fit in the basket so on this first trip I bought:
1. Colourplay Kettle in Teal
2. Chopping board in Teal
3. Colander in Teal
4. Colourplay Dinner Set in Teal
5. Colourplay Cutlery in Teal
The best thing about teal, is apparently no one else likes it, out of all the Colourplay colours, Teal is marked down in price?!
After sharing a sneak picture of my mini-haul on Facebook, a friend messaged telling me that Home Bargains (or B&M) had a selection of teal kitchen things!
So today, I can also add to my boot-load (I refuse to bring them into my mothers house, I will not move them twice!)
1. Set of Five Knives plus scissors
2. Tea Towels (set of 4)
3. Measuring Jug
4. Utensil Set
6. Two lamps (for the living room)
7. Wooden Spoons (they did have a teal set but they were plastic and I have a tendency to melt things)
I also picked up a clothes airer but it’s a more greeny shade so I’m going to swap it with my mothers which is … you guessed it. Teal.
