You see we have a l-shaped lounge and Liz, being the taller of us two, would normally take the end with the extra leg room. So in the four weeks when I was living solo, I had this new world of comfortable leg room opened up to me. So when our living habits returned to normal, I had to act quickly to retain my new found freedom.
First step, I found a reclining chair on ebay. Awesome. Cheap, comfortable, but whats that, no leg support? Don't worry I'll make you a foot stool!
