On the hunt

Mundane post time....


They're all mundane, aren't they? 

I'm on the hunt. For floral bed sheets. For my Nan. To give to my Mum for her birthday. Generation gap, I know. But Nan, bless her, doesn't even know how to use a computer, let alone own one. We have enough trouble with her mobile phone. That's a story for another day.

Anyway, during the heat yesterday, Darling Daughter (DD) and I were outside, in her playpen. Yes, both of us in the pen. Then the phone rings and it takes me about 5 rings to realise it was mine. So out of the pen I climb and inside, and answer it and Nan's worried she's woken DD. 

I tell her no. It's all good, we're just chilling in the cool.

So Nan tells me she wants to get my Mum floral sheets. Mum hates block coloured sheets. I don't know why, I don't need to know why. 

So I promise Nan that I will look. I've just spent all bloody morning trawling the internet for floral sheets. Then Mum rocks up and sees me looking and asks what I'm doing. And she points out she doesn't like FLORAL sheets, she asked for patterned sheets. So I start looking again, and guess what?


Oh hang on, wait a second....

They're $319?!?!? WTF? Who the heck pays that much for sheets? I honestly balk at anything over $60. 

Anyway, I guess that's it. DD is awake and she's an aspiring blogger herself. You should see what she would do if I let her at the keyboard!

Happy Monday peeps!


  1. Have you looked on the Pillowtalk website?

  2. Yeah, they aren't keen on patterned sheets anymore. My aunt found some at Walmart, but they don't ship to Australia!
