Ripe Figs, Old Chair and Sufi Wisdom

26 Oct

The figs we bought yesterday needed no cooking just to be eaten as they are. Delicious!

I have my Granny’s nursing chair which must be nearly 100 years old. Some time ago I decided that it needed reupholstering and this afternoon a lovely young man arrived to give us an estimate. I loved how he spoke of my chair, describing it as being like a much hugged and well worn teddybear, obviously well loved. He is going to check its age by looking up the design of the webbing underneath. Apparently the design of the webbing changed with each monarch and this has clearly never been re-upholstered in its life. Now we have to choose a fabric…..
