New furniture

My new table and chairs have arrived!

The cats, Clio and Manasse, are circling it warily. I'd forgotten how badly Leila deals with change -- the poor thing has taken to hiding under the sofa again. She'll come out when she's ready, I suppose.

I must admit that I'm in two minds about it myself. I needed a new table and chairs, but the old set was round and much lighter,

and not made of oak, which frankly is a type of wood I'm not too fond of; and now that the new set's here, I'm not sure if it's not too clunky for my tastes. Also, I'm not convinced that having another rectangular table in a room that already has four is one of my better ideas -- but I suppose I'll soon get used to it. For now, I just hope my sweethearts will keep their claws to themselves.

How nice! I love getting new furniture. Freshens everything up, doesn't it?

It does! It also causes much stress, and yelling at the cats to get away from my new chairs and their pristine upholstery. ;-)

It looks alright anyway.

I still think it looked better in the shop...but it's not too bad, and it has a few advantages over the previous set (mainly, that the table isn't wobbly and the seats on the chairs aren't made of caning). I've done alright, and for a mere 300 euros!

I like it. I like the little donkey table centre too.

Hee! My little donkey table centre (actually, pen holder) is one of my prize possessions! ;-)

I think it is rather smart.

That's it! I walked into the room this morning and suddenly felt like Raquel in that episode in Only Fools & Horses, in which Delboy, to impress his in-laws, had borrowed a table and chairs from Peckham borough council. ;-)

I'm sure it'll grow on me, though.

I really like the table and chairs.

Thank you! It is a nice set; I just worry that it may be a little too nice. With 3 philistine cats around, I have no hope of keeping it that way...

Re: new furniture
Of course I'm still donkey-mad! And Romeo wore those slippers till they fell apart, and then he was heartbroken. Still can't thank you enough for finding and gifting them in the first place!
