My Lovely Lavender Sofa Has To Go

 

My gorgeous sofa has just been listed on Facebook Marketplace and I'm more than a little bit sad. 😢

Alan and Jason tried valiantly to get it up to the top floor of Alan's house, the idea was to turn the en-suite guest room up there into a proper sitting room for our house-sitters and future potential Airbnb use, but the tight turn into the room at the top of the stairs proved to be the undoing of the plan and they had to bring it all the way down again.  

For now the sofa is upended in Alan's kitchen while we put it's legs and cushions back on then and then hopefully someone will want to grab the bargain of the year.  We did offer it to my other son Simon, but I fear the colour was just a little bit too girly for the new home he is setting up for himself.

The new chairs with much better support for my back are being delivered tomorrow morning, I'm really hoping that they will be more comfortable for me.  I also had to go out and buy a new rug as this one just looks dreadful with the new colour scheme ... so it's all change after just seven months.

There's also a lot of sorting out and decluttering going on at the moment as we are doing a Table Top Sale next weekend and we are going to be literally loading Alan's car up to the gunnels with stuff that has been waiting in the spare room sine we moved in, and also things from the Lodge that I have been sorting through after realising that I really just do not need them.

Anything that I have not needed since I moved in is going and it's going to be simplicity all the way.

  2. Oh what a shame it has to go. I can understand that you need comfort for your back but it would have been lovely in the Guest room, wouldn't it. Good luck with the table top sale. At least you won't be standing outside in this sudden cold weather ❄️😱 x

    1. It would have been fantastic up there, that room really needs a splash of colour. Alan was gutted when it wouldn't fit ... he even thought about removing the banisters and door frame.

  3. Oh, Sue, that's so very sad. I understand why and what a shame it was too big to take upstairs but . . . really sad.

  5. It is beautiful but hopefully the chairs will be better for you and your back. I am looking forward to seeing them as I have to do the same. All the best.

    1. It's a hard decision to make but I can already say that I should have done this six months ago, what a difference the chairs are making already.

  6. That is such a beautiful sofa. I'm sorry it has to go. It is much more important you have comfortable seating especially with your back problems. I have a recliner that makes a big different for my back.

    1. It was realising how much more comfortable I was at Mum's bungalow with her more supportive chairs that swung it.

    1. It's just gone to a really good home, and will live in someone's new extension for the children to watch television on.

  11. What a shame, I remember how excited you were about that pretty settee. I hope the replacement proves to be much more comfy and that you make pots of cash from your sale. xxx

    1. There's not much chance of lots of cash, I have just taken an almost £1000 hit on the sofa :-(

  12. That is sad, I recall you being so over joyed when you chose it. As we get older we go for comfort over aesthetics. Take care. X

    1. I honestly thought then that my back would get better, not worse. But the chairs are really helping. Yep, it's comfort ALL the way from now on.
