I’m currently in a state of limbo, having sent out my extract for the first extra-curricular workshopping session with my now ex-City University coursemates. We meet up on Saturday and we’ll now be reading each others’ pieces.
Mine starts with Emma’s sadness that James has persuaded her out of buying the wardrobe for the spare room that she really wanted and has persuaded her to go to IKEA instead.
I’d looked up a designer wardrobe suitably grand enough for Emma on the web on the Heal’s website and, in the interests of accurate research, I happened to be walking past their Tottenham Court Road store this afternoon so popped in to do some physical research. It seems they don’t have their most expensive ranges on display — they just have them on the web. But I found that the ordinary ones that were in the shop were pricey enough.
My photo is pretty indistinct but a 20% discount on one model still makes it Â£1,595.
There’s a mock up of a whole bedroom that might be to Emma’s taste. I dread to think what it would all cost — Â with the four poster, armchair and large Christmas baubles hanging over the bed.
