Word Of The Week – New

This week was another week of deliveries for us but it was all new items for our house. Monday was our delivery day for all the items and thankfully Darren was around to help take all our new items into the house.


The first delivery on Monday was from DFS. Our front room isn’t very big so we did have two two-seater sofas. During the lockdown, I finally had enough of having zoom meetings with a child’s feet on my shoulder. The children have grown so much! We discovered that the SkyQ box didn’t have to connect to the phone line like our other Skybox. This gave us the opportunity to move our front-room furniture around. Meaning we could look at different sofa options. We now own a three-seater sofa and cuddler for me when I have to work. Although the kids tend to win the cuddler battle a bit more than me at the moment.

It’s Little E’s birthday in July and her request is her grandparents round for a birthday tea. Sticking to the current guidelines we will have to have her birthday tea in the garden. I’m keeping everything crossed for a nice day. As we only have four seats for our garden set and it is actually ten years old I thought we should order a new one. This was actually quite a task as apparently everyone is ordering new garden furniture sets. I found one we liked on Very that could deliver before Little E’s birthday weekend. It was actually available earlier for delivery and also came on Monday.

Darren has also slowly been sorting out our garden. We also had a delivery of play bark on Monday. This is to go under the trampoline in the new area Darren has created for it. So it was a very busy Monday for us this week full of lots of new additions for our home.

  1. I had to chuckle at the idea of you doing Zoom meeting with your children’s feet on your shoulders. I’m sure it’s an experience many share with you. How lovely to have a new sofa and the garden furniture too. I’ve heard that it’s in even hotter demand this year, so well done for finding one you like. Hope you have many happy get togethers in your garden. #wotw

  2. It’s always lovely having new furniture. We had new garden furniture last year and there was a piece missing so we couldn’t put the largest seat together. It arrived in January this year! We did get a £30 discount off our purchase for the wait…not sure it was worth it. I hope little E has a lovely birthday. x

  3. All those new additions to your home sound exciting. I really hope little E will be able to have a great birthday. I had no idea you can’t have visitors in the house where you are yet? Here in the Netherlands, limits on home visits were removed as of yesterday. #WotW

  4. It’s nice to have new things to enjoy and break in. I hope the birthday do is lovely as we all deserve these little things that mean so much.
    Looking forward to seeing what you all get up to next week.

  5. Ohh! How exciting to get a new sofa.
    I hope the weather is nice for Little E’s birthday. I was looking at new garden furniture and all of the prices put me off but I suppose everyone is buying it at the moment. x
