In the afternoon I went again Sofa hunting, but didn't find those I liked so much, they only existed on Internet. On top I can't stand when a salesman is dancing around me and praises the quality of a thing I don't like in the hope that I would change my mind, but I didn't, I became like cat Kim, stubborn.
I decided on black
Fed up I returned home and suddenly I thought what can I risk ordering these sofas on Internet ?? At my age if they last 10 years (that was the guarantee) it would be perfect. The leather seemed good too, I took a deep breath and jumped into the cold water and ordered the two sofas ! First time in my life that I ordered furniture on Internet ! Now I have to wait 3 weeks. They will come from France. My friends had mixed feelings, some approved some said how dare you ... for some people computers and internet are still bewitched things.
For the two old sofas I put an advertising in our Facebook group "Vivre à Waterloo" and 2 hours later a man called me and asked me if they were still available, he needed them for the Boy Scout's Clubhouse, I was pleased that my old sofas would end up as maybe bouncing ball for youngsters ! I had even done a good action and was happy to get rid of that old stuff.
This time Scrabble took place in our house and instead of buying a cake I thought I would serve something different, the girls don't know and bought scones, clotted cream and blackberry jam.
As nobody loved tea, I commited a crime and served coffee instead. They loved it, they had never eaten clotted cream in their life. I had bought it in an English shop, because in a normal shop you don't find it. After scrabble the 3 of them went to the English shop and bought all kind of things I recommended, especially clotted cream !
I was a bit fed up of my Madame Batman bathing suit which I wear each week for aqua gym and thought I have to buy another one, more discreet just to be able to change. I didn't find a real sport bathing suit but one with flowers and when I tried it on at home I found it so nice that I will keep it for the beach in Egypt and take one of my old once to aqua gym !
Summer is back today we have 25°C in October !! Some people think that this never happened, but it did here is the proof :
On the 11 of October 1969, we had the same temperature at our civil marriage 49 years ago !!
It was our civil marriage. The same day the furniture arrived, we well remember it was hot !!
