IELTS Speaking topic: A situation you waited for something

Describe a situation you waited for something.
You should say:
where this place was
when this happened
who you were with
and explain why you had to wait for it.

I’m a big fan of photography so I clearly remembered how I waited for my first camera I bought in an online store.

I was in the habit of online shopping then so when I got the enough budget to purchase an expensive camera and lens in April last year before I planed to travel, I placed an order immediately in that website and waited for the delivery anxiously at home with myself.

The ship would not be shipped the same day because there were always a large amount of orders in the website, but it would be sent the next day. So I had to wait for a whole day. I constantly checked the shipping status in the website to see how the delivery processed, and I would always be very delighted to find a change in the procedure. You know, it always would be a long and painful time before you get something you dream of.
