My shopping list...

Over the past few weeks I've had a running shopping list in my head. It's been a long while since I've been able to make plans to buy anything, so it's a bit of an old habit, and I have to keep reminding myself that it'll be a while yet before I can go shopping...

Anyway, to satisfy my consumer-bone, I thought I'd post about the things currently on my list...

In no particular order...

A table and chairs or stools for the kitchen: our kitchen isn't big enough to seat all of us, but it would be nice to have a small table just for setting out breakfast, or for a cuppa with a friend. I was thinking of something like the following from Ikea...



maybe with these stools under it...



A large picture for over the mantel in the bedroom: This might be a large canvas that I paint myself because I want something bright and cheerful and abstract...

A set of shelves for the bathroom: like this...



Full length mirror for my bedroom: like this...



A rug for my side of the bed: like this...



Several green pot plants for around the house: like this...



Of course, we'd need pots for them too.

Comfy outdoor setting: something like this...



BBQ: like this...



An iPad:



A trundle for under Bryn's bed: like this...

2x 2 new matching doona and pillow sets for Dave and myself (single sets).
A King sized bed spread.



I also want to get my roots done (they're LONG overdue!!!).

I would LOVE to go to the movies and see something *I* would like to see!

Serving dishes: like these...





I could go on and on at this point in time.

There have been many years where I actually couldn't think of one single thing I would like. For some reason though, just recently, and especially with regard to our home, I have a real nesting urge, unlike anything I had when I was pregnant!
