07:19 am: Yes, it's me again
Viv met me in Chester on Friday night and we went home. A fairly quiet
night. Saturday morning over to Liverpool, where it was Viv's turn to
give blood. And on the way home, off to the Co-op for a trip which
proved only a limited success: no streaky bacon at all, no
semi-skimmed milk except in tiny cartons. In the afternoon, we took a
leisurely walk to look at furniture, where we discovered that Viv's
ideal sofa has nothing in common with my or Chris's ideal sofa. But we
did get a takeaway curry.
I had finished writing my sermon in the afternoon and delivered it at
the 10.30 service. 2 Kings 4:18-37. An ideal choice: the death of a
son. Yet, difficult as it was, it was well received by many and more
people thanked me than I remember doing in the past. I'll post a copy
of it shortly. Salmon for lunch, a snooze in the afternoon and then
off to the evening service.
All the time, people are asking how Christopher is and it's hard to
answer. The answer is that he is responding very well to the treatment
but he has good days and bad days, and there are other details not for
here.
By now, I'm on my way to Crewe and London. That is all.

Sofa... couch-choosing. Fun. We sat on everything in several stores, rather like Goldilocks, and settled for very big, high back, high sides, very cosy and soft, and - well, I chose the colour so... blue.

What would you like? What about Chris? And how did Viv's ideal differ?

Chris and I like soft and deep, Viv prefers harder and narrower. We all agree on the colour, or at least can find a compromise. Viv doesn't want a recliner, but we do. Time will tell. And yes, it's like Goldilocks. She'd sit on Viv's and say it was too hard, and on mine and say it was too soft. We need baby bear to help us out.

Does Chris get to be baby bear then? Or the other two, since Chris might give you an unfair advantage!!
Or maybe you could get a couch for you guys and a hard chair for Viv *g*

No, we're definitely going to get a matching three piece suite one way or another. Nobody wants to carry on having three odd pieces in the living room, including a couch with no reliable springs, though it does have fond memories for me: we bought it just after we got married, so it doesn't owe anything.

A matching 3-piece *sigh* that'd be nice. We chose such a deep couch, we couldn't fit in another piece in the same set LOL! Maybe now that we've moved the piano away, we might... one day.

If you've had this couch since you were married, it must have travelled around a bit!

Not quite. It moved from Birmingham (where we lived when first married) to my parents' house in Bromborough and has been there ever since. We were reunited with it in 2005. It has reached the end of its life. I think the replacement will be ordered this week.
