We don't have any shopping malls, let alone any department stores to do any shopping of the sort in Rwanda, so if you know me at all... I was excited!! AND I thought that I would be just fine with it all. I even had a list - kitchen timer, vegetable peelers for my friend Chrissie who is looking after Beni and Isabella, candles, coffee bodum, cutting boards.... and my list went on.
Well, I got to the section with all the candles and I got completely overwhelmed!! I was trying to make choices and I just couldn't. I would hold two scents in my hand and couldn't make a decision.
Feeling completely incapable of making a decision and just wanting to 'get out', I informed Serge that I was done! He was like... 'You're not buying any candles?' My reply... 'I can't even think... I can't make a decision. I just need to get out of here.' Serge, bless his dear heart, just gave me a hug in the middle of IKEA, assured me that it was okay and to just take my time. I did end up getting candles... can't remember the scent right now, but I know I got them!
This was the first of many experiences this week... SO many choices to be made when you go to buy something!
