It's shaping up to be a manic weekend here, hopefully the last for a while. I've been running around buying irrigation pipe and bore fittings and other bits and pieces to get water to Little House's paddock.
The cottage is nearly finished inside. Just a few last little jobs and then I'll go and take a lot of photos. We're super happy with how it's come up.
Over at our place, I did a bit of a pre-renovation lounge room reshuffle because I got the strangest phone call yesterday.
I have been looking for a recliner for Dan. I hate the look of recliners, but Dan likes to be as horizontal as possible while watching TV and is too tall to stretch out on our couch if I'm on it too.
I know, that painting is wonky and way too high. I will get right on to fixing it.
He'd taken to lying on the floor on Lucinda's little pink foam chair every night. If there's anything more tragic than watching a 6 foot man come home from working an insanely long day to curl up in his daughter's tiny foam chair and go to sleep, I can't imagine what it is.
I needed to suck it up. I found this pair going on Gumtree and emailed an enquiry a week ago. Then I decided they were too big, we didn't need two and didn't follow it up further.
Yesterday morning, the owner called me and pleaded with me to buy them as he was moving house this weekend and didn't have room. Conveniently, Dan's folks were driving out from Brisbane that morning and had plenty of room in their bus, so I made an offer.
$200 later, we have two leather Moran recliners. As far as recliners go, they're not the worst I've ever seen. Dan looked ever so content snoozing in one last night.
