Lounging around again

Well, the new lounge suite arrived tonight. It looks very comfortable. Perhaps too comfortable; recliners send me straight to sleep and this corner suite has two of them. And its such a pretty medium blue.

The delivery truck was due at 6pm, but a thunderstorm held them up and they didn't arrive till after 8.30 or so. I ate dinner sitting on the floor in front of the TV, the only furniture left in the front room.

The room has been freshly painted (making the rest of the house look shabby by comparison). And no sooner were the modules slotted together than Jack was up on one, and settled in for the evening. Looks like I'm testing out the suite's resilience to dog hairs much earlier than expected.

Ian, I'm assuming Jack sheds a bit. How do you keep a handle on the sheer amount of hair?

He sheds a lot!

When the European-accented guy came to steam clean the carpets a few weeks ago, he had to go outside to his truck several times to clean out the filter. When he wrote up the invoice, he added in the Comments section, "Many hairs from the Jack".

The guy in the furniture store recommended the fabric I ordered for the lounge suite. It resembles a broad-patterned corduroy and the hairs are supposed to not embed themselves in the fibres the way they would in other fabrics. So we'll see...
