…It was my birthday last week and lets just say that I am not amused with my age.

Anyway, I had some fantastic presents (my main one from David is still to arrive but I will let you know what that is in a week or so) including this gorgeous spiral cushion from my sister. I have been trying to decide on what colour combination to have for a while but she made my mind up for me with this two tone grey number. She makes all the felt by hand including the spiral. I think I may want another one, I just have to decide what colour to have…

Via lots of marvelous blogs but I’m not sure which….

It has arrived and it’s gorgeous!!! Although I had rushed to London Town to see it in the flesh and sit on it I was still nervous that we had made the right choice. We had been looking for so long for the perfect corner unit at the right price and the perfect colour grey that I had all but given up. Then I came across this beauty at Love your home for less and I was smitten. It really is very comfortable and most importantly (because he hadn’t seen it for real before ordering it) David loves it.The charcoal grey fabric is the most perfect grey and it fits the space perfectly, the pics seem to make it look much smaller but believe me it’s huge and there is plenty of room for us both to stretch out on it. The grey on the walls is a much more perfect match in real life too. We are two very happy customers!

Now we want to change the flooring which was put down by me when we first moved in eight years ago but the upheaval will be monumental! We have discussed the possibility of a polished concrete floor which would look amazing and even though we are living in an apartment our floors are concrete underneath so there wouldn’t be an issue of weight etc.
I have also at last decided how I am going to change the units under the TV because we desperately need more storage space and to hide the ever growing collection of David’s gadgets!!!

We have ordered the new Jasper sofa today from the very nice and helpful people at Love your home for less!!! We went to London last week and I travelled across town just to sit on it and it was super comfy and gorgeous!!! The configuration we are having ( there are many to choose from ) is similar to the one above but the chaise part is slightly different and it is overall bigger. The fabric we have chosen is the top one which is a beautiful dark grey and it has a very nice soft texture to it. Five weeks and counting and I can’t wait!!! Impatient??…!????
