I now have a filing cabinet!
I think the two men who delivered it were very suspicious. I could see them thinking: "He's at home, in the middle of the day, in his dressing gown, watching a movie - and yet he needs a filing cabinet. Hmmm..."
But then I tipped them and that made everything OK.
I'm very excited about this new furniture, though it does feel a little bit like the Phantom Tollbooth has landed in my study.
One of the best things about it is that I picked it up for only twenty quid - a proper filing cabinet for twenty quid! The branch of Furnitureland at the top of the road was closing down, so I popped in for a headboard. Didn't get a headboard, of course, but I did get... oh yeah, you know already.
The downside of all this is that I can no longer tell guests who are coming to my house for the first time to look out for the giant Furnitureland and then turn left. But I suppose eventually it'll turn into something else, won't it?
Oh, and none of you wanted a new coffee table or a sofa or anything like that, did you? They were going cheap this week and I already have enough in the coffee table/sofa department.
Anyway, too late now.
Now I must go.
Things need filing.
I must file.
