Furniture joy .... DVD major bummer

We braved the freezing weather yesterday so that I could show J the couches I had been looking at for the formal lounge room. They are more expensive than I had originally anticipated to spend, but I figure this room won't be used as much as the family room so they should last us a good 15-20 years!! Here's hoping anyway.

Fortunately J liked them too so we ordered them ... due in 4 weeks. Yay!!

We have also chosen the wooden furniture (coffee table, lamp tables etc) for that room so the only hard thing will be choosing a nice rug to go under the coffee table. I doubt J really cares that much about a rug so I'll enjoy looking around for one.

And for those that know me .... yes, a bit disappointed that the lounge room will be done before the backyard but I have every confidence that the back yard will be done by christmas.

So happiness all round for how the lounge room is going to look.

We also FINALLY bought some new cordless phones. Friends and family are getting sick of ringing the home phone because we only had one handset .. in the bedroom .... and it used to kick in to the answering machine before you could get to the bedroom and answer it. So most of the time we would just let it ring.

Well loved ones, you'll be pleased to know that we now have 3 handsets so too much wine will be the only reason we can't answer the phone!!

We were also very excited to purchase 'Contiuum' .. the final movie of the Stargate saga. Again, for those that know us, you'll know that Stargate is a big hit in our house and we have watched with delight as Jack, Sam, Daniel Jackson (mmm yummy) & Teal'c have fought all kinds of strange & evil creatures.

So you would think the final movie would have been pretty awesome ...............

Wouldn't you???

Well ... I can assure you that it wasn't!

Very disappointing. Shame on you Stargate writers. If this is all you were going to deliver you shouldn't have bothered!!!!

Nice to have an update from you! Bern is really into Stargate Atlantis, and I was watching Stargate there for a while. She is now keen to watch the series form the start, so we had better get the home theatre organised!

Where did you buy your lounge suite? Ours is from Bay Leather Republic - and will be delivered on Friday. Just in time for some very special guests to relax in comfort on Saturday.

Cordless phones are brilliant. We have had the Uniden ones for a while and have recently bought two new handsets for it. Awesome!

We are anxiously waiting the release of Atlantis Season 4!! We have all SG1 and Atlantis Box Sets (yes .. uber geeks).

Ended up getting the lounge suite from Freedom. There were a lot of places I looked at (including Leather Republic .. love that place!!) but none really had the style I was looking for (I knew exactly what I wanted). The one we have ordered is the closest I could find.

I think our new phone is a Uniden ... seem like good phones but only one catch .. the ring tones are hideous!!! So we have a very gay version of Fur Elise on one handset and a normal ring tone on the bedroom one. The study is a mess so I haven't even done anything about that one yet!! That is the next room to get a workover I think!

Can't wait to see the lounge room done, please take some before and after photos!

Garden beds are looking great, I'm sure the backyard will be ready for Christmas.

If I'm reading between the lines correctly you might be going to visit a new Cremorne on the weekend. Have fun!
