We’re almost at the end of Autumn here, and things are getting freezing here. As this’ll be our first full Winter here, we’re madly getting ready for it. We need more warm clothes, and we need ‘em now. So, off to Wagga Wagga we went today. None of us felt like going out in this frosty weather, but thankfully Wagga was warmer, so it worked out. We stopped at Adelong first. This antique shop caught my eye because of the spinning wheel on display. It was a good price, now if I can just find out whether or not it works…
This store wasn’t open, but a friendly local noticed us making noises about it, so told us that the owner runs the taxidermy store in Tumut and that if we ring her, she’ll come open up for us. Good to know, but we’ll probably hold off on the taxidermy part, huh?
I also loved this shelf and the two bowls. I think they’d suit our little alpine cottage beautifully.
We hit Bunnings for some supplies and firewood. We knew we were getting firewood delivered by a local today, but we also knew it’d be soaked from the rain, so we needed a little something to keep us going. Look at Skinny Minny in the background there! Changing meds is really agreeing with him, don’t you think?
I needed more blueberry and raspberry bushes. I’ve decided I want to plant 6 raspberries and 12-14 blueberries. The only annoying thing about getting them from Bunnings though, is that they only seem to have one type of each plant. Some of the strains I want will need to be purchased online, I think.
One of the hardest things I found about this tree change when we were new from Sydney, was going without sushi for so long. At least, until we found two places at Wagga that makes it well. We started out getting our fix at a juice bar at Sturt Mall, but once we discovered Sumo Salad, we don’t have sushi withdrawals so much anymore.
We ran out of time to do get everything we set out for, but we had a lovely day, and got enough warm things to keep us going until next trip. In the meantime, I’d love to hear from any experts on the best places to get snow/cold weather gear from. We have loads of great parkas from Next Direct, and are happy with the quality and prices. We have one pair of snowboots from there as well, but sometimes we’ve found shoe sizing to be a bit hit and miss from this store. We’re also trying to find out where we can get thermal long johns at a good price for the little ‘uns. We’re going to check out the Aldi snow sale in June, too. Anyone else know some good places, either online or off?
