Finding a new bed can be a daunting experience, especially when there is such a large selection of mattresses these days. The biggest question that puzzles us all is “Which mattress should I buy?” and “Which mattress is right for me?”. I can say that last weekend I too was facing this conundrum and ventured out to find the solution. Before we begin I will happily admit that I went into this experience never having really selected a mattress for myself (properly) before and so I was most definitely the uneducated mattress buyer.
After having a look at a few different stores at the Homemakers Centre in Alexandria, I poked my head into Snooze Alexandria where I was met with a sea of friendly faces. After some friendly banter I went on my mission to see what they had available, and this is where Tom stepped in. Tom came over and took me from the A to Z of what I needed to know about buying a new bed, he was able to chat to me on my level and give me the details I needed as well as ensure that I got the right mattress to suit my body and comfort needs.
It is not often you get a person who provides exceptional customer service, but I have to say Tom really went above and beyond and spent as much time with me as I needed to make sure I was comfortable, had seen all the options and had all the tools to make an informed choice as to the mattress that I needed. At no point did I feel rushed and at no point did I feel unattended, Tom always seemed to be there in the background when I was ready to try the next mattress.
The age old saying goes, if you give someone a bad experience they might tell 7/10 people… I prefer to go with if you give me an amazingly exceptional experience, like Tom did, I will shout it from the rooftops till the cows come home.
So if you are in Sydney and in need of a new bed, a new mattress, or both, I would have no hesitation in telling you to head over to Snooze at the Alexandria Homemakers Centre, the staff are great, the selection is great and they have some great deals available (YAY for Easter Sales).
Keep up the awesome work Tom and the rest of the team at Snooze Alexandria.
I have never been a big drinker, ever… I can safely say I have only ever been drunk twice in my life and didn’t like it much at all. So when I *do* have a drink I like to make sure it is a good one. After recently attending a wine tasting with a workmate I purchased a case of Teusner Riebke Shiraz (2011). Out of all the wines we drunk on the night it was definitely an all round favourite (out of the four of us that went I think we ended up with three cases of the Riebke and a couple of bottles of other wines).
I got to share this with my lovely new girlfriend this year to celebrate the end of 2012 and the onset of a new year and a new me for 2013.
After being on my learner license, and two provisional licenses over the last four years I am happy that I can now enjoy the occasional drink (as NSW rules are VERY strict with ZERO blood alcohol level until you are on your full license). While I don’t plan on drinking regularly, and am very much against drinking and driving, it is nice to know that I can now safely enjoy a glass with dinner.
I can also definitely say, while I am NOOOOO connoisseur, I can tell you that if you need a good bottle of red to go with a BBQ the Tuesner Riebke Shiraz is well worth it. I don’t exactly know how to describe it but I can say it is a wonderfully full flavoured red wine and the first time I tasted it I thought, quick give me a BBQ now.
While we are here, a quick Happy New Year to everyone and this year should *hopefully* see more of me blogging now that my university studies have completed and I have graduated.
If there is something you would like to see me write about, review, read, dance or otherwise please let me know.
While at the Powerhouse Museum yesterday I had the pleasure of seeing the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Choir sing “You make me proud” in celebration of World Aids Day 2012 (#WAD2012).
It was great to see and a great song too. You can see more about it at http://outpostchoir.com
It is amazing what some people will do for their 15 minutes of fame… Having said that, I have to admit I really do give this guy credit so make sure you closely watch the reactions of the onlookers. So without further ado, with the compliments of @Triple5Adam from Twitter (to which I both blame AND thank him), I present to you “CallMeMaybe”.
LOL OK… go on, did it make you really truly LaughOutLOUD?
