The jobs worth's from Argos would not take my word that the sofa could be unwrapped, I had to wake hubby. Once we had unwrapped it fully we realised that if the manufacturer had thought about it they could have wrapped the cushions separately and created a lot less hassle.
Then the furnishing. It has demonstrated the flaws in my measuring techniques. Measuring the length of the wall does not mean everything will fit!!! You must take into account the windowsill and skirting board.
Oh well the best laid plans and all that!!!!!
