When I watch Gogglebox on Channel 4, I realise that for many of us it isn’t TV that is the centre of the home, but rather the sofa. Best friends, husbands and wives, families or all shapes and sizes congregate on the sofa night after night. Yes, it is our seat in front of the TV but it is so much more than that.
It is that comfy squishy sofa that we sink into at the end of a long day.
So how exciting is it that sofas are now part of my life? Today I started my new job as Marketing Manager for EZ Living Furniture.
My sofa is sometimes my desk with my laptop, papers strewn and a cup of tea by my side as I write blog posts. Sometimes it is a haven for confidences as my best friend and I sit side by side pouring our hearts out. My sofa is the place that my son first found out that he had received first class honours for his first year at university.
We were also sitting together when he received a skype message to say that his video game Boxman Begins had been greenlit on Steam (for the non-gamers, this is the biggest online gaming portal for PC games). It is also where I Skype my family in South Africa
I share my sofa with my memories, and many friends and family, but writing this blog post I realise I also share it with myself. I am happy in my own company and have had many contented hours sitting in my spot (shades of Sheldon from the Big Bang here as I always sit in the same place) simply enjoying a nice cup of tea and a scone, and maybe indulging in some Netflix.
So the question is – who do you share your sofa with? Or perhaps even who would you like to share your sofa with? For Patrick Dempsey I might even move out of my spot.
I would love to hear your comments.
