Now I can sit down before I fall

I passed a furniture shop while on my way to pick Romeo up from school yesterday. It had a complete clearance sale; everything had to go because the business had failed. I walked on, but...

...I'm one of those kinds of women who, when they're anxious, or stressed, or both, will buy things. Big things, usually. Throwing money at anxiety will not make the feeling disappear, but it will take my mind off it for a while. Sometimes, I will resist the urge, other times I won't. Yesterday was one of the latter times. I turned back and 2 minutes later, had bought a sofa.




A white leather 3-seater, sold to me for less than half its normal retail price


There goes my first advance on my severance pay :(


But I think it's worth it


And it looks like Manasse has already given it his seal of approval



It looks a bit different from the one I was going to buy and saving up for, but at bargain price and with instant delivery thrown in, I just couldn't resist.

It looks like it was made to go there.

I feel less guilty about buying my laptop when I was broke now!

Funny, that's exactly what the delivery men said when they dropped it off. But then of course, that was the space I had in mind for it when I bought it.

I feel less guilty about buying my laptop when I was broke now!

Do you still have it? Do you still use it? And are you broke now? Well then! I hope that in a few more months, my having spent more than I should won't matter, either.

Oh I like it. I could never pull that off...it's white and I have kids...but would love something like that...maybe in 6 more years.

To be honest, I would have preferred another colour, but because it was got in a closing down sale, that wasn't an option. The white's okay, but it's a bit too stark for my interior, I think, so I'll see what I can do with throws and cushions over the next week or so.

Ooooh, I like! I've been wanting to buy a new sofa lately, when I don't really have the money to do so. I'm like you too, I like to buy stuff when I'm stressed. Then I stress out even more after the initial thrill passes. Gah!

Yep, it has that effect on me, too. But it's a wonderful feeling while that initial thrill lasts!

That is *gorgeous*! I am deeply jealous. (Doubt I'll *ever* be able to buy a white sofa...)

If it makes any difference, I didn't initially want a white one...but now that it's here, I think it works quite well. And yes, I'm worried about smudges and stuff, too ;-).

They're a leftover from my previous couch, colour scheme: yellow & orange.

Most people buy shoes or bags or clothes, stuff they don't need. Buying a sofa is always a good investment.

That's one way of looking at it -- thanks!

I think it's gorgeous! And it matches Manasse. :)

He certainly seems to think I bought it for him especially -- I keep having to shoo him over!

It's a very pretty couch, and with a gorgeous cat to boot!

Why, thank you. He is a handsome devil, and he seems to think the sofa's there to make him look even more beautiful.
