I remember sitting in the staffroom at work a few years ago listening to talk about sofas. We had recently bought two new leather sofas for our lounge since we were expecting Son 2 and soon realised how easy it was to wipe clean leather after the effects of sticky hands. I think altogether the sofas came to around £1300 and we had a 0% finance deal which meant we were simply paying £30 a month for them which we hardly noticed, it seemed like the right thing to do at the time. I remember this colleague talking about sofas and saying how he would never ever buy a sofa from anywhere but Laura Ashley or similarly priced shops. I guess it's about priorities, but I actually like changing our sofas every four years or so in which case there is no way I would want to spend £5000 on the whole suite. It's good to have a change and also the seats get worn out after a while. I also really miss our old sofas, they were a bit too big for our lounge which is the main reason we got rid of them, but our new ones are too small, I can't lie on them when I'm tired or ill and they are just a bit too...upright?
I really want something cosy and comfy like this one at SCS which is called "Halo".
I can just picture myself lounging on it with a very large cup of tea and my kindle, bliss. I also noticed something really cute on the website - a story about a little girl called Amelia who wrote to SCS about how much she liked their adverts then found herself invited to the next making of an ad and was treated to a "behind the scenes" day. It makes me think of all the great opportunities that are open to us all if we only ask! I've lost count of the cool things I've been able to do with my family thanks to writing a blog and a lot of it is about making contacts, asking politely and being in the know, but those things are incredibly easy to do.
Anyway, here are a few of my fav sofas from the SCS website, what do you think of their adverts? Have you ever had an amazing opportunity simply because you were in the right place at the right time?
Happy days lounging on the sofa!
