Well I was very lucky to find just what I needed - a cane sofa and two matching chairs for less than £10. My wonderfully kind husband offered to drive the just over 2 hour round trip to collect them. Luckily they fit in the boot of the car quite nicely so he didn't need to drive back in the rain with the sofa on the roof! Here is a photo of one of the chairs - the other chair and sofa are in the garage until I can treat them with tung oil or something else that will waterproof them - any ideas/suggestions?

I have absolutely had enough of the cold now, even though we will probably get another two months of it. Winter seems to have lasted an eternity this year. If it were just a little bit warmer (and dry) I could get out in the garden and do some serious
