Stop the presses, there is no normal or standard post here today, there's a different game plan going on here today. Give me a second and I'll tell you what's happening. last night my plans today changed at 8 pm when a friend text messaged me and asked if I wanted to go op shopping with her in the morning to help her search for an outfit for an upcoming fancy dress party.
You don't need to ask me twice to go op shopping of course, but I couldn't do it on Thursday which she had initially suggested and was her preferred option, so I suggested we make it today but it would have to be with our younger kids in tow after we do school drop offs in the morning.
Now why am I telling you all this? Well my friend has never ever been op shopping before. She quizzed me earlier yesterday about prices she could expect to pay and when I told her she was gobsmacked.
Anyway today's change in plans is sure to have some great laughs, while we are popping my friends op shop cherry and we are wrangling two four year olds and a twenty-two month old.
If you have any advice for a first timer who has never set foot in an op shop before, what would it be?
