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.

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.
