An evening in

Since the ceiling fell in upstairs in the sitting room we’ve been forced to have a re-jig. We have moved our remaining settee downstairs and the fatally injured one out the front ready for the final trip – to the dump. 

The dogs seem to be carrying out a survey to find the best place to snooze. 

This is the settee that we really need to re-upholster. We bought it for very little in an antiques shop in Rye but just haven’t got round to it. Plus the cost of having something beautifully upholstered is way more than the settee cost. You can do these things yourself – I made the red headboard in our bedroom. But in this case I think we need a professional job. When we find the final home in the house for this settee we’ll make a decision about the look and get it done. 

This chair we bought years ago in Greenwich market. Klaus is pleased as it is starting to look a bit worn. The rug is a simple one from Ikea.

The fireplace is still empty. The slightly ridiculous dogs’ bed is tucked in here and they seem to like it.
