Last week I purchased an old vintage deck chair from eBay and ever since it has arrived the past few days have been a wash out! So just now I have a lovely old deck chair in my sitting room (I'm not ready to relegate it to our rather spidery garden shed just yet!) I have tested it several times, the pale taupe and pink striped original fabric is still strong and it is rather comfy. I have played around with the different back rest heights and found the optimum one for me. Now all I need is the weather to use it in!
I find that this always happens with me; it happened earlier last month when I bought a summer dress and consequentially we were immersed under a rain cloud for almost two weeks!
I had gotten used to the summer style of living with windows and doors flung open, allowing frequently wandering outside to be warmed by the sun.
Today the doors are closed, although the windows are still open and the cats have swapped flower bed lounging for sofa and armchair dreaming.
I too have joined them, reading magazines and catching up on ironing which was deemed much too hot a job to do when we had the tropical weather earlier this week. Occasionally I get the sofa all to myself and when this happens I always find myself looking at the sitting room and thinking how different a room can look from another angle. So here is my view from the sofa (and most probably the rest of today!)
