Thanks for stopping by.
One evening this week, I was on my way home, and the traffic going through Tunbridge Wells was savage.
So when I got to the exit for John Lewis and Home Sense, it was a no brainer! Sit in traffic or go mooch in the stores until the cars are all gone.....
Look what I found!!!!
I have been looking for a little wrought-iron day bed to go in my little Wendy House for ages!
Would it go in the car?
Has the Pope got a balcony?
Where there’s a willy, there’s a way!
When I went in the house and told Dave I needed a hand to get what I had bought out of the truck, he laughed nervously.
“You’re kidding, right?”
“It’s very heavy Dave. It took 3 people to load it at the other end.”
He tried hard to be happy for me, that I had found this treasure, all the way from India. But I could tell. I could tell he was groaning inside....
Anyway, I thought the cushions were delightful!
And look! It’s not far to the Wendy House!
Grace in the corner under the Ginkgo tree was cheering, too.
Dave figured out quickly that it came apart...
“I can’t let you go out alone, can I,” he said.
But I distracted his train of thought with
“Well, I just hope it fits.”
“You mean you haven’t measured it?” he gasped.
The main bit was really really solid. Weighed a ton!
But as I said, where there’s a willy, there’s a way.
Even Romeo the cat got in on the action.
“Yay! Another seat to wreck,” he’s thinking....
Time to hoover out the cobwebs and make a space....
By this time Dave had pretty much accepted that there was no going back, so he might as well join in.
Perfect. Beautiful. Comfy.
AND in the sale at Home Sense !!!
The little Wendy House just needs a lick of paint, after all that rain this winter. But I think I’ll break that to Dave after the Doncaster Dome Retail Show this coming Sunday, or he may just not come back! Maria Simms and Jo Rice are kindly demonstrating up there on my behalf ; my worn out neck is still posing problems, so I am delegating the strenuous job and staying at home,
to film YouTubes and blog ahead a little.
Oh and read a book on my wonderful, colourful couch!
