I’m a bit late posting for Living Arrows today. We’ve spent most of the weekend sorting the house out and that has meant the computer has been unplugged, the camera battery was flat and my desk was in pieces, but we are getting ourselves straight again now.

Amongst the big leaps forward this weekend, we now have our sitting room back. When we sealed it off and handed it over to the builders 5 months ago it was less than half the size it is, the kind of room you might generously call cosy!

In it we had a three seater Ikea sofa which we had bought in Cyprus, moved to Scotland and then brought with us to Sussex. It was broken and rather tired. I was worried that at the end of all the building work we’d have nothing left to spend on a sofa and we’d end up in a lovely house on a broken sofa – I was right to be worried, we did finish with nothing left to buy a sofa!

However a few months ago my parents decided to change up their 10 year-old red corner sofa and we became its lucky new owners. We sat on it in the sitting room for the first time last night, we all love it, but Theo in particular is besotted with it and keeps telling me “I love our new sofa mummy”

So this week’s portrait just had to be taken on it!

It must be so amazing for all of you to have that much space again after so long – and he just looks so happy and excited he might just burst for joy!

Ah I remember that: finished the building work with no money to buy a new sofa to replace one that went in the skip feeling!

The colour is fantastic and really makes for an eye-catching photo – and his smiley face adds to it too of course!
