We grew many more flowers in that early garden and I used to bring them indoors and display them around the house.
This week we have been spending money. I had two new sofas delivered on Tuesday for my front sitting room. The existing ones were 20 years old and beginning to show their age. It has taken us well over a year to decide which to buy. I wanted small ones with firm cushions and plain, not ornamental sides. We found the stores were full of really large sofas and most of them very squashy with very wide arms. I also needed to have something that would fit in with the existing decor as we are not planning on changing that.
Do you like my cat by the way. He is called Jelly Cat. Alan bought this for me some years ago. Certainly not quite the same as the two gorgious Siamese cats we once had but cuddly all the same!
We also bought a new vacuum cleaner. I am so thrilled with this one. It is so tiny and light I can hardly believe it (when using it one pulls out the telescopic handle). My last one was 1700 watts and was so heavy I could hardly carry it upstairs. This one is 750 watts and it does a far better job than the last. I got it on a special promotion saving nearly 100 pounds and a voucher to send for a free set of quite a number of extras.
