We're also going to a couple of furniture warehouses I found online, with a view to hopefully getting a new recliner armchair. I think I've mentioned before that the one we have is on its last legs, it's about 12 years old, the leather is fast wearing out and looks decidedly tatty and the springs are going, so it gets more uncomfortable by the day. I use this chair a lot, on the nights when I'm having difficulty sleeping I often come downstairs and sit/recline in this chair, I even manage to sleep in it....so getting a replacement is a priority. We've seen a few second hand on ebay or in 2nd hand shops, but none were any good for one reason or another. We've got money saved for it, but would just rather have been able to buy one second hand but good quality, as is our usual way. I'm just a bit suspicious about the ones I've seen online in these warehouses though.....although new, they are quite a lot cheaper than others I've seen. Obviously we'd like to pay as little as possible, but I don't want it cheap and nasty! A bargain is not a bargain if it's not going to last. Still, we can but look.

We've just discovered, by chance, that our bathroom scales are rubbish. OH weighed himself this morning and noticed that his weight was actually more than last week, despite a solid week of no deviation dieting. So he got on the scales again.....and again....and it was a different reading every time. So I had a go straight after him - weighed myself 5 times in a row and got 4 different readings....and there was a variation of 10lbs - TEN POUNDS! - between the highest and lowest weights! So who knows what we weigh and how much we've genuinely lost? We know we've both definitely lost weight, we can see and feel it. To be fair, the scales are probably 10 years old (and most likely full of dust and talcum powder!) so obviously in need of replacing. We'll get new ones tomorrow, will probably go for ones with a body fat monitor also (that'll be scary!).
