The chair looks lovely ... better than a head massage!!

Good colour co-ordination of everything.

Judy it all looks lovely. As Marina said the colours go well together.

Splashed out and bought a new doona cover.  Basically in blues and pastels and the selling point was "inspired by Monet".  It has no specific pattern to it, but it is absolutely gorgeous and I love it.

Must be that time of year. Tossed out two Lazy Boys and bought one new one and a new printer. Love your chair Judy. Cuilidh would love to see your cover. Sounds lovely.

Judy, chair looks very comfortable. Enjoy. Very practical carpet.
Marina, that does sound nice. Love Monet colours.  We have a Monet bedroom.
Talking of shopping. Noticed Alyceís new SC book in a gift shop. $35. Noticed K Mart had it for $20.

Marina, that's a lovely doona cover.

I bought a new clock radio at the weekend and will be taking it back this afternoon.  The instructions were so complicated that we couldn't even set the time.  It even had DS confused.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Sometimes I feel like I need a university degree to understand some of the directions that you get these days, however, I always have a giggle at the badly translated English.  We once stayed in a hotel in China and the house rules were fantastic ... "You are not allowed to up anyone in your room", "do not light fireworks in your room", etc. etc.  House rules were always the first thing we would read when we got to our rooms ... I suspect the hotel owners must have wondered why all their rules disappeared to!
