My husband makes a trip to Bunnings - Daily



Now Bunnings conjures up images of men trawling the aisles, old men, fat men, plumbers bum type men, blokey men. Is that the image you would see in your mind?

I must say, since being a renovators wife, Bunnings has become my husband's second home. He's always out of nails, staples, screws etc. I started to think he had a problem. He was down there so often. Like us women who have a shoe shop addiction or clothing addiction.

I ask him, "Honey, why can't you just buy all the stuff in bulk so you have it here?" I am told that in this "renovators" game, you don't necessarily know what you might need or how much of it you will need.

I have been there a few times to return things or buy his "stock". Today, I went there again to buy staples for the staple gun. With the shop assistant being rather busy, I read the information and followed my husbands orders best I could.

Of course I returned home and discovered, I bought the wrong ones. Another trip for him to Bunnings right?

Yes.

My husband Craig, told me we had to go to Bunnings together last week to look at tapware. Great I thought. How boring. I'd much rather be looking at the washing pile.



Well, we got there with our little boy, an up coming Bunnings extremist, and you know what? I couldn't believe the furniture. The outdoor furniture section is fantastic now. I decided Billy needed another camping chair, a little kangaroo, since I couldn't get the outdoor furniture for the incomplete renovated house. I carried it around all over Bunnings until we got to the tapware, which was boring. I decided I better leave the camp chair as he did have another one and I was really just in a buying mood. We looked at internal doors, external doors, pretty good prices.



I then discovered some timber screens which would look great outside near the laundry. Speaking of laundry, I decided since I don't have a laundry or a laundry tub at the moment, I better swap the camp chair for a bucket to hand wash clothes in.

I saw some really great bedroom accessories in Bunnings too. Nice shelving for the girls bedrooms.
So, I may just become another Bunnings convert.
There is an absolutely gigantic one opening down the road from us shortly.

My husband is counting down the days and so I found out off some school mums, are their husbands. It really is a mans paradise. So, if your man is complaining he doesn't have any hobbies or friends, send him to Bunnings and he might make some "Blokey" friends or discover a new DIY workshop.
