Today we bought a new sofa, and it’s the best damn £17.50 I ever spent. Alice’s Dad text her asking if we wanted to buy a sofa from his friend, so she text me asking if we wanted to buy a sofa from her Dad’s friend. Originally I was sceptical because I hate spending money unnecessarily. I mean, we have a sofa. It works. It’s not comfortable and we’ve been speaking about getting a new one, and originally Alice’s Dad’s friend wanted £50 for it.
But, I thought, fuck it. We’ve barely bought anything new for the house since we moved in 11 months ago, and a lot of the furniture we do have came from family members. Alice’s Dad got the price down to £35, and we bought it. And let me repeat… It just might be the best damn £17.50 I ever spent.
What I didn’t realise, is that it’s a recliner sofa. Alice knew, but she wanted to surprise me with it. Bless her. So we moved the old one, got the new one into the house, and BAM. Footrests.
Awwwwww yeah. That’s the stuff.
It’s comfy. Real comfy. It’s not just the legs that recline either, the back goes almost all the way horizontal.
We just led there all evening and relaxed like this…
Until tomorrow, absolute bargain.
