Rock around the clock


I have gone a bit mad this week buying stuff - after months of holding back it's as if the credit crunch is on hold for a few days. Dawid the builder is here at this very minute replacing the nasty 1970s 'piece of 2 by 4 masquerading as a picture rail' in the dining room with an authentic one to match the others in the house. And on Wednesday afternoon, in an 'Oh my god Real Homes are coming' moment I picked up the phone and ordered an Eames rocking chair from the wondrously swift, efficient and friendly James at Swivel, where we got our Eames dining chairs last summer. We've wanted to get one for ages but somehow never have. And now it's arrived, a mere 48 hours later, I wish we'd bought it years ago - it's lovely. Or at least I think so! ( Felty cushion a recent stealth purchase - don't tell my husband...!)

You think right, it is lovely! Did you know you were the subject of chat on the LE forum the other day with all saying that LE had really missed out on a great home to profile by letting RH snap you up!!

We got the Eames chairs too! Maybe I got the idea from reading your blog many moons ago? Mmm....

My photo
I'm 39 and married with two children aged seven and four. I'm fatally attracted to house renovation projects, and this is our third in the last seven years, my personal fifth since I bought my first flat in 1996. I think we might have bitten off more than we can chew with the Worst House.

Fame at last!
