We made our first big purchase today – put a cot on layby. We would have just paid for it and taken it home, but we had already measured the box they come in and discovered that there is simply no way it would fit in our car (Daihatsu Charade hatchback). So we arranged for them to hold the cot until we could arrange with Leanne’s sister to bring her partner’s ute. The store wanted to charge $50 delivery – which I thought was far too much to pay given we are just down the road. Heck, if I had a decent hand cart, I could have walked home with it.
Anyway, we got the Kingparrot Scout Cot, which converts into a junior bed. It’s a nice heritage teak colour which is similar in colour to what we have in our own bedroom. It was also one of the models recommended by Choice magazine, which was a bonus.
We have ordered a few other bits and pieces online and expect them to be delivered over the coming weeks. I’ll write more about them later and will write reviews of stuff that we take away with us – once we have a chance to test them!
