I can't believe the new replacement lounge suite is arriving today!
I am so relieved this saga is going to be over... and kind of apprehensive too, because the new suite is quite dark in colour.  I am hoping it doesn't make the room look too 'closed in'?

Apart from waiting for that to arrive, my day is empty!  So I should be able to catch up on my blog reading ... commenting... and maybe even some sewing!

Crikey dick,  I have done very little sewing lately... Christmas is around the corner and I AM NOT READY!  I want to make everyone something for Christmas that I have sewn.   I hope I manage it.

So, until I can show you photos of the new lounge suite...


ABOVE:  *sigh*.... try washing the floors with one of these in your hands!  NOT easy.  Kiba just would not settle down and sleep after breakfast this morning... he kept howling!  So I carried him around with me until he was asleep then put him with the rest of the pups.  
It reminded me so much of when I had babies... and had to do the exact same thing!  

I just got a phone call from the delivery company, the new lounge suite is arriving this afternoon between 1 and 3.... AWESOME.   Quite excited now....

Washing out, floors washed, prepared family room and lounge for new furniture... lots of vacuming involved... now going to have an early lunch as I'm knackered!

The delivery guys arrived early!  So, they took the old suite away and brought up the new... and left without unpacking any of it!  So, I had to... well I couldn't wait for my guys to get home could I???

 ABOVE:  bye bye old suite...

ABOVE:  I have to admit I was a bit miffed that the men did not do the unpacking... it was not that easy for me to lift that friggin couch up to get the wrapping off.

ABOVE:  the new lounge suite.. viewed from both ends of the lounge.  Well... what do ya think?  It's going to take me a while to adjust to the dark colour that's for sure.

ABOVE:   I haven't mentioned this have I?  That's because personally I don't give a shit about rugby... but Stew and the boys do... so they will be glued to the TV from now on... I think the World Cup lasts for 6? or 7 weeks.  OH YA.
End of Day:  well after saying I had NO interest in the Rugby World Cup I found myself watching the Opening Ceremony, which was Fantastic!   And now I'm amazing myself by watching the freakin game too!  So far we are leading by 29 to 3. 
nite nite.

    Chris, I really think the brown will warm up your room. I think you'll be happy with it! Hope it arrived safely!! can't wait to see it in your Lounge!...debbie

  2. Awesome news about the lounge suite, and great that Steve had an awesome first day. Have a great weekend :-), and remember we never get sick of puppy photos lol.

  3. Yay!! The puppies are always so cute; enjoy 'em while you have 'em!! I can't wait to see photos of your new suite! :)

  4. What a sweet little bundle to carry around while you do your chores.
    I hope the lounge suite got there safe and sound and that you really love it.

  5. Personally I think it looks good, but I'm no expert! Looking to hear what others think though. Cute puppy!

    Lounge looks good. Is it just the lighting or does it have that aged antique look? Methinks you might need some greeny coloured cushions to match in with the other chairs and the rug.An excuse to sew! Yeh, don't you worry about the rugby cos the wallabies are gonna whip your all-black kiwi butts! WOMBAT

  7. I like the new colour. It adds, well, depth, I guess. Breaks the blandness (not that I'm calling your room bland, mind you). Just adds that extra something. I like it!

    the dark colour is so much nicer than the cream! love it

  9. How cute is that puppy. They are just adorable, at least Kiba will be around for photos - with young Teddy and Coco. The lounge looks great and hopefully wears a lot better. Just think of those calories burned by unpacking the lounge.

  10. I think it looks nice! Weird they didn't unpack it though, they were probably "punishing you" for the whole thing I'm guessing.

  11. love the new suit... and that baby is just adorable LOL!
    love n hugs

  12. I can't believe they didn't unwrap it either! It does look great tho'!!

  13. Great that your new lounge suite arrived safely. We have just won a similar battle - but in relation to our 5 year old fridge. The shelves cracked in the February earthquake and the manufacturer no longer make the parts for us to replace the shelves. They have now agreed to provide us with a brand new (larger) fridge - yah!!

  14. This whole world cup thing is kind of addictive. We went to Northcote Point to watch the fireworks then spent almost an hour to get home - a trip that takes 20 mins. Plus I coughed up $ 200 for tickets to Aussie vs Italy on Sunday and am actually looking forward to it.

  15. Kiba is just adorable, and I love the new lounge suite colour, AND YAY the RWC is finally here I am lovvvvvviiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnng it no more sleeps no more waiting ITS finally here!

  16. I don't give a tuppance for the rugby either, but I LOVE the atmosphere in Auckland at the moment!! I've just come back from Sylvia Park where I screamed myself hoarse at the All Black win! :D

    GO All Blacks!!!!

  17. I think you shouldn't worry about dark furniture, I think it gives a character to the room. I like it :)

    I like the Brown so much better. You sure have a lot of seating! Now just put your wildly colored pillows on it and you'll be alllll set!!...debbie

  19. How darn you mention the "C" word, I try to put off thinking about it as long as possible. Congrats on the new lounge. Poor pup good you were there to comfort him. Have fun watching the Cup.

  20. I love the new furniture - it looks fantastic!

  21. I can finally comment... woo hoo! hope you won't get offended but you did ask...I don't like the new colour!! Much preferred the cream ones...but perhaps you'll get used to the pics of the pups..congrats to Steve on the new job..I haven't been able to comment in ages!!
