A touch of the cosmos or the way to a man's heart?

For a while I've wanted a piece of furniture so that I could hang up coats and store gloves, scarves and hats as they seem to pile up over the winter months.  I found exactly what I wanted online.


 Unfortunately it was much too expensive. Then the sales came - still too expensive. I kept coming back to it; wishing.  A few days ago, I was looking wistfully at it yet again and decided to think outside my little box.  Christmas is coming, say I presented the idea to the family accountant, Rob, as a joint Christmas present?  So I went online again and saw that as well as the sale price, there was a reduction of a further 10% plus free postage (even on bulky items) if I used the special offer code!

So I prepared my case and my personal accountant agreed.  I was very careful to point out that the reduction totalled to more than 100€. It solved the Christmas shopping problem too - the way to a man's heart!

Now I just have to assemble it ...

It's jolly nice, and it reminds me rather of a great big and ancient commode I saw in an old Cotswolds house. Though that had a hole in it, obv.

I sure you could use your female charms to find a suck . . . . sorry, a man to assemble it for you. If that fails then try forcing money into his hands. It always works for me; the forcing money into my hand I mean.

Me? When I come in I just hang my coat on the floor as usual. Real men dont need fancy hall-stands!

Dru: Now when I look at it I will think of my Granny's loo!

Connie:Thank you... still waiting for it to be delivered.

Keith: I'm glad that you haven't completey disappeared. The truth is the coats kept falling off the banister onto the floor

This is lovely and how wonderful it made it from a wish to soon reality when it is delivered. I wish I was there to help assemble it - I lurve flat pack furniture. It is like a life-size jigsaw and there is nothing better!
