Shopping for kitchen appliances.
After looking at their displays, I'd pretty much decided on the oven (Electrolux) and cooktop (Westinghouse) and the prices we were quoted were the same as Appliances Online for the oven, but the cooktop was $200 dearer at the Good Guys. So, we went across the road to Harvey Norman and found a very knowledgable girl working in the kitchen appliances area. The Electrolux oven was nearly $300 cheaper than The Good Guys, and the cooktop was $100 cheaper. Appliances online prices were the same as the Good guys for the oven, but $120 cheaper for the cooktop. OMG! Pays to look around, doesn't it!
With the flooring, Harvey Norman's had a big flooring section over there with various types of vinyl and laminate surfaces, and once again the guy was very helpful without being pushy, and he is coming out week after next to do a measure and quote. It's all getting more real and less of a dream!
And Ken picks his new car up next week....
This afternoon we are going to a BBQ lunch for a friend who is turning 60. Monday is a public holiday, not that it matters when you're not working any more. One day runs into the next without any thought of whether it is a week day or weekend!
