We did it! We bought a sofa!

After hours of intensive sofa testing, we made a purchase yesterday at Domayne.  Unfortunately, the Sitta at Freedom just didn't cut the mustard price and fabric-wise.  Anyhoo, good news, after all the sofa stress we had experienced here and here.  (I know, the important things in life, right?!)

So, this is what we bought...

The package we purchased comprises two x two seaters (one right arm, one left), one armless two seater and the ottoman you see on the right.  It gives us lots of options for comfy configurations - very helpful as we haven't determined our TV wall yet! - and fits all of us on it with room to spare.

It will take 12 - 14 weeks to be custom made, and we got a great saving so are really excited.

We also have been chatting with the builder and are getting closer to being issued a site start date.  Can you guess who is holding us up?  Our ever trusty and reliable b.a.n.k.  Seriously, I don't know how some people hold onto their jobs.  It's just one piece of paper, peeps!

We are just mooching around home this week, but every day feels like Sunday which is fantastic.  I hope you're having a lovely break (if you're lucky enough to be having one).

Hopefully next time I see you, we'll have that elusive site start date!
