I can call our dining room the parlour now!!! The sofa arrived yesterday and I'm so pleased with it. I was worried that it would look too small and too cheap. I ordered it on Sunday and it arrived Wednesday. Not so long ago everything used to take weeks to arrive and not so long ago I would never have got this sofa for £139. In the past, when I've made a purchase like this, I've woken up in the mornings feeling guilty and thinking that I'm being extravagant and that I've bought something we didn't really need but at that price I can enjoy it!!!
I was reading an article in the newspaper about a woman that started a cupcake making business and saved her family from bankruptcy. I get a bit annoyed when I read articles like that. Well done to the woman for taking the chance on doing this but I think there is more to it than just making the cakes, turning up and selling them. These articles never tell the story of how they actually came up with their strategy, how they chose what venue to try. I suppose I must feel a bit envious after my disappointing attempts last year, to sell my sewing at a fair that is put on regularly in a village near where I live. I probably chose the wrong venue so this year, if I decide to have another go, I will try somewhere else.
