The scales measure not only weight, but also body fat, BMI and how hydrated you are....although all the readings go off a bit too quickly before I've actually absorbed which is which, and by the time I've got off the scales I've forgotten what they all were anyhow! Think I'll just stick to the weight bit - which you can do, you don't have to bother with the other readings. The important thing is that the new scale does seem to be accurate....got on and off it several times in a row and it gave the same weight reading every time, unlike our old scale.
As for the recliner chair.....we'd decided that the very cheap prices in the furthest away of the two furniture warehouses were just TOO cheap, they must be poor quality at those prices (or else they'd fallen off the back of a lorry!), so didn't even bother going to look.
Luckily, the one we went to, which is a reputable local family firm who have been in business there for 15 years, had a chair which was just perfect. They'd had a sale on last week which had finished on Saturday, however, after a bit of haggling they agreed to let us have the chair at last week's sale price, which pleased me no end. It's being delivered today :-)
