Subject:Ouch!
Time:12:28 pm
My favourite chair just collapsed under me. It's been creaky for a while and I'd checked the legs etc. and couldn't find anything wrong. It turns out that it was the dowels that hold the actual seat together slowly breaking - so it broke in two, and I ended up on the floor on top of the wreckage. It has a broken seat, back, and so forth. Not repairable, but given it's 1950s utilities furniture I won't mourn it too much, there are plenty like it.

No injuries, fortunately, except I banged my thumb and it was bloody painful for a few minutes. Seems OK now so I don't think I broke anything.

Annoying part of all this is that I've lost 9kg dieting over the last few months. You'd think it would have happened while I was fatter!

Really annoying because I did like the chair - it's one like this

http://www.worldstores.co.uk/p/Windsor_Chair.htm?product_id=482292

and while I have some other wooden chairs, they aren't quite as comfortable and don't look nearly so nice. What I'll probably do is wait until I see a set in a used furniture place and buy them, and give the others to a charity shop or something.

Fortunately I don't seem to have taken any real damage - Some minor bruises but I gave blood today without any problems so I'm presumably not suffering from internal bleeding or something...
