I started doing online shopping while I was building my house, scouring the internet for all new, unique and beautiful things. Every time I discovered a gem, and sometimes even a practical item - I ordered it.
Obviously things got a little out of control, which resulted in me starting to receive various boxes of deliveries on an almost daily basis, for weeks on end!
Every time the doorbell rang with a new parcel delivery, I got a fluttering in my tummy and I could barely contain my excitement, just like Christmas Eve when I was a child. The best part is that you have absolutely no idea what it could be when it arrives, because I have ordered so many things from so many different places, that it is truly a surprise, and a good one, because this gift was chosen by yourself to yourself - no disappointment ever!
The next day it was the same story, but his list grew exponentially everyday, until at the end of the week he had a new fireplace installed, new paintings hung, a wonderful new sound system and a vintage record player (which included seven trips across town for me to look for old records), to name but a few.
