10 Things Tuesday: 10 reasons I shouldn't have put those office chairs on the hard rubbish three weeks ago...

1. The Grumpy Old Man said he didn't think it was a good idea at the time, and now he won't stop reminding me he said that...

2. My parents were going to deliver new office chairs to us within a couple of weeks, and we were going to use dining chairs in the meantime, but then the sale of their house fell through and I forgot to figure in needing to sell our dining chairs (to make way for the dining suite we're inheriting, leaving nothing for us to sit on...

3. It rained an hour after I put the chairs out - which was half an hour before my parents rang to tell us the sale of the house had fallen through. Sodden chairs couldn't be hauled back into the house...

4. Broken office chairs are always better than no chairs at all.

5. The 12 year old keeps hauling a kitchen stool into the study to use instead, encouraging poor posture (his) and much stubbing of toes (mine) at night.




6. It irks me that my kids can see my computer screen from the heady heights of that stool, but I really can't so I have to blog from my iPad.

7. Blogging from my iPad is kinda impeding my blogging enthusiasm, which is partly why this post is so late today, and partly why I still haven't completed the interactive post from last Tuesday...

8. Because the GOM 'told me so' and seems even more inconvenienced by the lack of seating than me, I feel compelled to offer him the bigger office chair when they arrive, even though I really want it for myself...

9. I miss my iMac!

10. It makes me even more impatient for the new office chairs, if that is even possible!






Bless, bless Sif xxx

Oh what a disappointment - the sale of the house falling through particularly.
It happened to us once - bad timing on the chairs. If I was closer I would lend you some !

That wasn't the end of the story - they sold the house a second time about 10 days later, so the office chairs are coming soon :)... In the meantime I just need to be patient... It's a lesson I've yet to learn!
