    I found this lovely red leather sofa in the charity furniture shop - a couple of days later I found some gorgeous Missoni cushion covers in TKMaxx, which I've since filled with cushions. Sofa and cushions are both pictured.

    It does. It keeps things warm for a long time too.

    I've bought so many teapots over the years that don't pour, more dribble or splutter....go figure :confused:

    I don't have £850 for this. Definitely not. I really have nowhere to put it right now either. It is nice though, and massive and looks very comfy. It's probably an investment...

    Going to be measured up for this as our bedroom curtains:


    Bedroom walls are pale blue-y grey so I was keen to have colourful curtains (as a compromise given I would have painted the walls something much more vivid if it was just up to me!)

    Nothing very exciting but at least somewhere to put the coats. It is a complete fucking bastard to put together, I just know I'll get 90% done and have to take half of it apart. Urgh I hate flat pack.

    I resisted the chair, mainly because I didn't have the dosh, but now I'm tempted by this, which I also don't have the dosh for, but wow, love it.

    Two Shepard Fairey prints, the first one a cheapo copy for a tenner as the original is already several hundred quid, the second a signed print as they're still affordable.

    Must be getting grown up or something, but went aimless shopping and just ended up buying stuff in a posh kitchen shop. We've noticed we need not medium sized serving bowls when having people over, and also we're trying to cut down on cling film use, so have bought some oven/microwavable dishes with lids for leftovers. I know it doesn't look very exciting but I'm quite pleased with them.

    I am well chuffed with these prints. Spotted them in the window if Sue Ryder round the corner and really liked them as I've been wanting more colourful art in house. Also I reckoned they looked like being by a good artist and looked her up online. Showed to gsv this morning, he liked them too, so we got em. They sell for a lot more online!

    We have purchased an egg cooker. The soon-to-be-nine-year-old loves eggs and wants to cook them himself. The egg cooker seemed like a good way to not destroy the kitchen or end up in the burns unit.

    This: John Lewis & Partners Specialist Synthetic 4-way Wedge Support Pillow, Medium/Firm at John Lewis & Partners a couple of months ago. Bought on a whim, because the last V-pillow I had from JL went saggy in less than a couple of months (£35 including delivery. It's not just JL V-pillows, though, V-pillows and me just don't get on, they never last). Best on-a-whim purchase I've ever made, I think, I have completely dispensed with ordinary pillows. I don't like the case (it's actually 2 cases, the bit at the bottom is in a separate case) because a) it's white and b) it's 100% polyester. I emailed JL the other day because I had a look on the website and I couldn't find any spare cases - and they confirmed they don't do any! :(:mad::snarl: £61.95, including delivery, and I can't get a spare fucking pillowcase! :mad::snarl:

    Still, I'm no longer waking up feeling like I've slept on a concrete slab. :thumbs: But I need to wash the case, and I can't wash the case if I can't find a spare! I would also prefer it if it was cotton, or at least a cotton/poly blend.

    I have those (2 of) - have no idea where I got them, have had them for years - absolutely indispensable for night-time readers (or knitters). I call them my 'cheeses' and pack one when I stay in the horsebox. Had to make my own covers though.

    To be fair though, I nearly always flob into oblivion in a sitting position and have to faff around with my feather pillows at some time in the night.
