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.

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 ;-).
