Not sure what that means :lol:

The wife isn’t happy, but the boys were seeing it when they come back from school. They’ve been arguing like mad over what to name it though. Luckily I have high ceilings so I’m gonna try and hang it tomorrow! It’s about 7.5 ft it’s huge, I wouldn’t like to face that in the waters!

It's a quote from William Morris about design, buying objects and all that jazz. Bad joke really :lol:

If I had my own way, we’d have non repro chesterfields (I’m an antique dealer by trade)

Hate modern leather sofas, soft materials all the way. Used to have a pair of late 18th century chaise lounges we had reupholstered (simply for show), I fell asleep on them many a time. So comfy despite them looking uncomfy.

The wife wants a new sofa, I’m loathe to spend so much money on some no doubt ugly thing though again.

The conversation room is the focal point of the discussion wing at Chez WBCP.

It's got a couple of hand-crafted tête-à-tête chairs in it.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

No wonder County Durham went blue. Sickening.

Next you’ll be saying you sit at the table.
