Patience is rewarded
Its here at last - at the end of February we ordered some new furniture for our sitting room. And look its here! I may be spending the next few days with my feet up... ah...
Yesterday I suddenly remembered I'd been planning to put the old futon we'd been using onto freecycle. I got it on at 5 pm and it was collected before 10 pm - what's more by someone who'd been asking for a futon for the last week and a half so actually wanted it. I'm really glad its gone to a good home. And even gladder that we've got this new seating now.
The people delivering it had all the parts wrapped in great big bags with straps - the bags protected it and made it reasonably easy to slide around - and they took them away to use again so no cardboard to recycle.
My blog still seems to not being published in bloglines. As blogger is owned by google I'm suspicious that this is an attempted to move us all over to google reader... and I've succumbed... its rather good actually.
