Guessing Timber

Today, I’m going to the hardware store to get some very important materials. I’ve needed them for some time now, and haven’t been able to get them delivered on the internet. Apparently they are only available at a physical store, which means I will have to get in my car and drive around town until I find one. I’ve been saving up my money for these materials, which will allow me to finally finish my big project.

Once I get out of bed, I will have a shower, get dressed, eat some breakfast and then head out to find a Hampton hardware store. By the end of this blog post, you should be able to work out what supplies I need to buy. I won’t tell you outright, because that would be boring! But I’ll give you a few hints. The things I need to buy are a variety of colours, but mainly green. They are also squishy in the middle, but hard on the outside. All right, here’s your last clue: if you burn it, it smells like cinnamon. And remember, I’m going to Hampton, not Cheltenham. Timber store isn’t the right answer, obviously. Why would I buy a timber store? There you go, I even told you something that it isn’t. How generous of me!

What have I been using my supplies for? Well, I don’t think that will help you guess at all. In fact, it might just make you even more confused, so here we go. Don’t read on if you want any chance at guessing.

Recently, I’ve been building something in my backyard, something in roughly the shape of a small house, but it’s not a tree-house. It’s made mostly of stone and has electrical parts involved. It will have no ability to protect me or my family during the oncoming apocalypse, so it’s not a shelter. It’s not for play, but you can play with it.

All right, I think you’ve had enough hints. Now tell me, what am I going to buy from the hardware store today?
