The good news is that my settees came - the delivery men were charming. They put my old settees into the garage ready for the British Heart Foundation to collect tomorrow and they brought my new ones in with no fuss at all. They look very nice and are so comfortable. And I can get up easily which is a bonus.
The bad news is that I put the rug back down and then pulled one settee forward on to it. The castors are much more effective than the ones on my old settee and it came forward at speed and I promptly sat down with a bump on the floor. Luckily I was near enough to the settee to get up easily but I have a sore bum in spite of landing on a rug with a carpet beneath! It is much better this morning so obviously no permanent damage done.
At Librarian's suggestion I will try taking a photograph to show you but I am having trouble finding my photographs once they are in my computer - I come across them by accident days later even though I label them.
The morning began with bright sunshine but now, at only a quarter to ten, it is cloudy although not particularly cold. I normally go into town this morning, get my 'housekeeping money' out of the bank, pay my weekly newspaper bill, have coffee with friends and then return home. But today one friend is at Yoga and another is on holiday so I have no need to go. Soon my dog-walker will be here to take Tess on a long walk so I haven't even got that to do. So it is a nice hot shower and a leisurely morning. Maybe see you later with a photograph. Here it is - the best I can get as I couldn't stand any further back. Ercol settees by the way.
