How to choose a sofa

Thu, Jan 08, 2009

While it is important to get a sofa in just the right colour, it is just as important to get one that will last. Inexpensive furniture can break, pop springs, and look out of shape after a year of constant use. Quality construction will offer years of enjoyment and has enough good “bones” to allow you to recover it periodically.

With the increase in oil prices and the depletion of oil reserves, many people have turned back to solid fuel over the past few years. Wood is becoming a favourite as it is clean, renewable, easy to store, and can give a warm, lasting, fire. Whether you burn wood in a fireplace, stove, or furnace, good quality firewood is the key to convenience, efficiency, and safety. Most stove manufacturers recommend dry hardwood logs. What exactly are dry hardwood logs and where can you get them?

Now to state the obvious, another week over and another week nearer to Christmas. I hope that you have enjoyed some days outdoors, and by that I mean in the garden and not walking up and down the main shopping streets. The shopping can wait but the garden cannot.

The easiest type of gardening for this time of year is what I term armchair gardening. Easy work this might be, but vital nonetheless.

Next to my love of gardening is my love of books, and being able to link my hobbies can be very satisfying. Mind you, I enjoy reading many many types of books, not just those inclined to the plant world.

I console myself by stating that gardening is a very visual subject and pictures are often more helpful than words.
