Are you...?

Are you a tidy, sit in the chair sort of person? I'm not, I always seem to gravitate towards the floor. Rooms look wonderfully uncluttered when you are looking up at the ceiling!
A moment before this photo was taken Maisie was fast asleep with her head on my stomach, she thinks that it is her place to be stretched out in front of the stove. She is nosey, so when Himself came into the room with the camera she had to sit up and see what he was doing.
It was good to be lying down because I've had a busy weekend shoveling compost onto the flower borders. Perfect sunny weather and no cold wind, just a joy to be out in the garden at last and moving things forward.

Our house is stuffed with all manner of chairs and we have just had this old faithful, originally from my parents' home, reupholstered. I discovered that there isn't a very exciting range of fabrics to choose from unless you are prepared to pay a ridiculous amount of money. I picked this tartan tweed from a tiny sample and just hoped that it would look okay, so I was relieved to see how it had turned out when the upholsterer brought it round last week.

Maisie is a bit miffed, she was allowed to sit in the chair when it was in a dilapidated state, but not any more!

  1. I do sit in a chair, but I am most comfortable with my back against one arm and my legs thrown over the other. Not very ladylike is it? Bonnie

  2. Hi Rosemary,
    I must admit to being a bit of a 'floor layer', as too is little grandaughter Ella. Some sort of peace down there you don't find anywhere else. The chair....perfick!

    1. I'm glad that both Ella and you are floor sprawlers, although my position last night had a lot to do with the state of my back after the time that I'd spent in the garden!

  3. Love the chair. Good luck in keeping Maisie off although I think it may be a futile task.

    1. I'm having to put a book on the chair seat to stop it being reclaimed. Maisie is spoilt, but not spoilt enough to be allowed to sit on our 'new' chair!
