So in order to expand the range of perches that my guests can choose from I've bought some of these giant pom poms that I've been coveting for a while now. I first spied them in Habitat but of course, I was on the hunt for something a bit more cheap and cheerful. Mine are from the George homeware range and, fingers crossed, there seems no compromise in quality. It looks like a mad knitting artist has plonked an installation in the corner. The small red one came first at the bargain price of £19 and I added the others that cost £39 apiece earlier this week.
I'm really pleased with their versatility. They make great footstools as well as seats and are light enough to drag into the sun room when extra pews are needed there. And Louis' been doing that usual childhood thing where imagination extends an object's use beyond that intended. Perhaps their proximity to his stilts gave him ideas. He's been using them as balance balls!
