RAL bought me some Pasparley pearl and diamond earrings.  Think they will have to be for Xmas and Birthdays for the next few years.  Took me 10 minutes to decide which ones I liked.  I bought him some shoes.  Took him all day to decide. We walked all around the city.  Didnít know there were so many shoe shops.  Cookie, you would have loved it.

You are loved and well loved. No one is more deserving Chookie. Same goes for the shoes for Ral.LOL!

How wonderful Chookie and well deserved. I remember standing in Broome and going into the Paspaley Pearl shop. They even let me hold a lovely pearl, it was amazing.

Lucky lady Chookie, we girls usually know what we want although I do know a couple of procrastinators who might have taken longer than 10 minutes to decide.  I hope Ralís shoes are really comfortable after some indecision in choosing a pair.  You must be one of the rare couples I know who love to go shopping together, me, well I like nothing better than doing it all on my own and my DD takes after me.

Shopping together can be challenging. If I hesitate because of price, he says get it. ( thatís how I got my first TMX)  But he can never make a decision about buying for himself. That is why it took a day to buy him some shoes.

That's funny Chookie. My DH is similar, if I cant decide between 2 things he says 'get both.' I usually do.

I succumbed with the Black Friday sales and ordered the KitchenAid microwave I had my eyes on ages and ages ago. They reduced it by 10% and free shipping.

That sounds like a very good buy Cookie.  I also was tempted by the Black Friday sales.  I booked 5 days in Melbourne at the Sofitel for 40 % off. You were supposed to book on line but there is a problem with me doing this , so I rang the hotel direct. There was a window of dates for next March and this suited us.
