|Looks like this, but l-shaped...|
This happened to me over the weekend. A simple trip out resulted in me purchasing....a new sofa! Look, this may not seem like the most fascinating topic in the world (although I know this blogger will understand where I'm coming from!) but this is significant for a number of reasons....
- My current sofa (l-shaped) is super comfy and perfect for watching The Good Life/E.R/Cougar Town, but it was bought in haste and brown has never been my favourite colour, clothes or interior wise.
- The new sofa could have been designed just for me...it's BRIGHT PURPLE/PINK (more Heal's than Barbie, I promise), and a kind of crushed velvet/gorgeous textured material. As a woman who had a grey corduroy sofa in Manchester, I'm all over something a bit different. You're probably dry-heaving as you read this, but I promise, it's divine.
- The fact that I'm buying significant items of large furniture represents a commitment to Dubai that I don't often make. I have no intention of doing a moonlight flit, and will probably be dragged out of Dubai by my fingernails, but psychologically there's always been something holding me back from accumulating too much 'stuff' whilst I'm here.
