On multiply, I wrote about a rug that I'd bought hoping that it would hide some of my dog's hair only to discover the rug lost more 'hair' than Zara did. I don't remember how long I put up with this rug, which I eventually threw out. It wasn't the kind of thing that I'd give to someone I didn't particularly like let alone to a friend. Not too long after getting rid of this annoying rug, I saw another rug marked down in a shop that was going out of business, and decided it was for me.
Now this one has several perks apart from the price. I like the colour and it combines well with any colour I decide to put in the room. Naturally I'm not going to use dark colours, since those make a small room even smaller, so the colour is perfect. Although I always wear socks to bed in winter, it's still nice to put my feet on a nice soft rug instead of the bare floor. What's not to like you may ask? Because it's so thick, anything you drop on it either buries itself or gets camouflaged. Despite this flaw, it's a keeper. I'll try not to drop anything like a needle or pin or anything sharp and dangerous on it!
Tomorrow is a holiday for us, and I know either later on today or tomorrow I'll have to listen to a detailed and then repeated version of a flat owners' meeting I couldn't attend on Monday evening. I was so not upset about missing it. At least I have an extra day to do some of the things I want to do (hopefully).
We're supposed to have some big rain storms today, but so far only have big clouds. Only another week until Easter holidays. I hope it doesn't rain out all the processions like it has in the past. Easter comes a bit early this year to ensure a bit of good weather. And then there are the 'Fallas' in Valencia which end tomorrow night with big bonfires to burn the 'fallas' or monuments that they've spent all year constructing, with lots of noise and fireworks, so hope they don't get rained out.
Happy St. Patrick's Day and hope everyone has a good week.
