Furniture looks at home now! Still chaos with the books being sorted, & these small drawers are still empty! Lovely sunshine here today :-)
In reply to Lindybird:
Thanks for all the approval of the new furniture. Yes, OG it is in our small dining room. The doors to the conservatory are off to the left, and the glassed door you can see on the right, goes into the hall. We have another similar unit on the opposite side of the room, with glass display shelves. Our old dining table is going to remain, because I love it so much! It's round, but has a nifty centrepiece which pops up to make it twice as big, and oval shaped. Its teak but not so orangey that it clashes with the new stuff. We bought it from an elderly lady in our town who was downsizing - I only wanted the table but bought the 4 chairs, too, saying to my OH that we could replace them later. But they grew on me so we still have them, it must be 25 years ago now! Before that, we had a cast off table from my parents.... Pat, one of the small drawers is already destined for the chequebooks and pens, plus the odd pending bill which needs attention. One of the others will be handy for drinks coasters - but none of them are big enough for tablemats. The few tablecloths I have left will go into one of the drawers below the TV. Mostly, we just use large mats on the table without a cloth - one day, I thought "Why am I laundering all these cloths?"
EDIT: I added the flourish of a bunch of daffs as the supermarket were selling them for only a pound! Irresistible!
Good Morning. Dry here and not too cold: my intrepid OH has gone off to golf, even though the ground will still be very wet due to all the rain we had. I was going to go to do some errands, including taking two bags of books to charity outlets, but as I'm not 100%, I think I'll just make a quick foray to the supermarket for milk and tissues! Then I'll do some more pottering about - I've not even looked at my emails for 4 or 5 days. Yesterday I asked my OH for the little jar of Vick he had by the bed - he's been breathing it in to help his bad chest. When I smelled it, it was odd, so I looked at the box it was in for the supposed use by date --- --- it read "June 1993!" ---- ---- it's going in the bin!!!!!
