In case you haven't already considered it there are a variety of products which you could use to adapt any chairs you currently have. See these sites for examples: https://www.nrshealthcare.co.uk/bedroom-seating-aids/seating/standing-from-chair-aids or https://www.completecareshop.co.uk/bedroom-aids/chairs?sort=MasterPrice%3Aasc Alternatively this chair on Amazon may meet your requirements: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B07SQX9ZQB Or this chair: https://www.amazon.co.uk/NRS-Healthcare-High-Chair-H86810/dp/B006B8CIY6 Lots of other choices on Amazon as well: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/bestsellers/drugstore/2826371031/
https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/treasuretreeforvocalcarers The above is a link to an organisation that helps people carers (especially unpaid/volunteer carers) - they may know of similar organisations in your area - might be worth getting in touch with them.
Don't be afraid to buy second-hand. I know of one chair that cost well over 1K but went on ebay for £450 - it was four weeks old and hardly used as the lady it was bought for passed away shortly after her kids bought it for her. There are lots of these types of chairs on sale on gumtree etc that are in perfectly good condition - certainly worth a look (having transport also helps). There may also be some help groups in your area that could advise on any assistance. Hope things work out for you, God bless.
I should add the Shackletons are out of our price range, we are looking at around £350 as a budget.
I've used these for a couple of years for cortado. Coffee & streamed milk produced by an espresso machine - wouldn't use for hot water from a kettle which would be nearer boiling. Not idea if they're intended for this but they've worked perfectly well for me https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/reko-glass-clear-glass-80094014/
Saw some in poundland recently
Have you tried in store at ASDA? I got a large glass mug,for just over a pound,recently(it may have been cheaper,can't remember,but was very cheap). Not on their site,but found it in store. Granted,it might be a bit large,it says tea mug on the sticker,but I use it for coffee. (y)
are these glass cups microwaveable?
All 3 sizes on this page https://www.roov.co.uk/kitchen
What about making your own. With big chains and a old tyre make a frame from thick wood or a steel frame.
Back door action (lol)
When I was a kid in the 80s, one of our neighbours had pampas grass but only at the rear. I'm not sure what that could have meant.
My daughter is approaching her 18th birthday, and she still uses her swing on a daily basis. It's a plum swing set that is rated above her current weight, but it still needs new brackets or a swing seat every year or so as they wear out. Here's an example that would suit; https://www.caledoniaplay.com/product/single-wooden-swing-frame/ It looks like the seat itself comes separately so make sure that is also rated for adults.
It must be a Scottish thing. If you had pampas grass in your front garden it was code u were a swinger (lol) (y)

If any of the OG egg chair crew are on here, I managed to get a B&M one last week for £175, sure, I had to befriend one of their staff and get them to hold me one until I got there but it might help someone. I'm very happy with it
I adore the hanging chair and am so tempted. But it'd probably get ignored by my 2. They'll probably prefer to curl up in a cardboard box instead. On the other hand it would look nice as part of the decor as well. I admit it - I'm trying to look for an excuse to get it just because I love the look of it. That cats expression is so funny. :3 I like the igloo too, & at least it can be useful as a carrier if they're not interested in it as a bed. These have been all over internet, I think they'll sell like hot cakes.
Because cats are renowned for enjoying being swung around :/ (skeptical)
Why has it got a cage door on it? (confused) (shock)
(lol) (lol) (lol) the cats face !!!

chair for my son's bedroom for computer
Hi folks I have been decorating my 18 year old son's bedroom as a treat for him when he can stop at mine again in a couple of weeks,I have seen a chair that looks the same as the o… Read more
I bought one of these a year ago: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/294142415904?hash=item447c411420:g:vPkAAOSwocRghRxz I knew it wasn't going to be amazing, but it is pretty good for the price. A year of hard use and the arms are a little worn thin, but the reclining function and general build quality is great for the price.
You can buy this one from the range, which is foldable... https://www.therange.co.uk/outdoor-living/garden-furniture/swing-seats-and-hammocks/new-hampshire-foldable-hanging-chair/#910121
I wanted one of these from b&m. Impossible to find one in Birmingham. They won't tell u if they have any in store over the phone. I went to 5 different stores. None had them. None would tell me when they'd restock. So I was lucky enough to fine one online from Dunelm
That two seater one doesn't look sturdy enough, same base as the 1 seater isn't right the weight limit must be low. 200kg double the 1seater according to the site.. interesting..
Check fb and gumtree.. lots of people give them away.. else tell him it’s your house and you want the carpet protected.... then get what you want. He can always use the dining room table or his knee.
Just using a carpet off cut I feel so bad for not knowing about all these other options..
Cheers,I have a stubborn son,and he said today that he doesn't want one of the polycarbonate "plastic looking matts" so I'm annoyed.I suppose I will have to go to a carpet shop when I can and see if they have an offcut that has a hard back and I suppose get it bound.His carpets quite new and at least that would give it some protection
I just tried to look at the order in my Viking account but because it was so long ago it has disappeared. It is semi see thru with a bevel along the edges for the chair to roll on and off easily. It looks similar to the Viking mat but I cannot vouch for the quality of them nowadays. Viking No.3810134
wow that's good going is that one of those see through ones?I shall have a look.I have an office chair in my basket at viking

This looks similar quality to the single. Due to the shape of the chair you will find water doesn’t sit on the surface so you don’t really need to have the super heavy duty fabric
Oh sorry I didn’t realise your aldi egg chair was the double. I have the Aldi single chair. Let me see if I can find the double version. You may find someone who has recommended a double size cover in the comments for the double chair deal
Thank you! Will it fit the measurements above for my double egg chair?

Ikea Kolon Floor Protect I ha e this on carpet and it’s good. Read the reviews for yourself.
I got a cheap one from Argos and it’s better than nothing but it isn’t hard wearing enough. It had divots where my chair casters are.
Or these. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=Office+Chair+Mats+&_sacat=0&_sop=15 https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=Office+Chair+Mats&i=office-products&ref=nb_sb_noss
I got a plastic mat from Costco. I will look to see if I can find what it’s called. This is not the one I have but you can see the idea. https://www.costco.co.uk/Business-Office-Supplies/Office-Furniture/Office-Accessories/EconoMat-36-x-48-914-x-1219cm-Lip-Studded-Floor-Mat/p/277791

How to weld metal leg of chair?
Hi Our one of dining chair’s metal leg came off. How can we fix it ? Are there welding instruments we can buy or anywhere we can get it fixed? Is there any alternative suggestion… Read more
Yeah, I've heard of it, but you're never going to "glue" a metal chair back together when the leg's come off! As for the OP, how to weld a metal leg of chair? With a welder. Have you got one? Nope. Then maybe find someone with that equipment? As to what they were expecting people on this site to suggest, I've no idea!
Metal glue exists :p https://www.loctiteproducts.com/en/know-how/fix-stuff/metal-glue.html#:~:text=The best epoxy for metal,all metal and concrete surfaces. I'm a bit confused by the title then the question as you seem to have answered your own question. If it's metal get it welded. The type of metal will determine what type of welder will be required, tig,mig,arc etc
Metal glue for a broken metal chair leg? (lol)
Contact (in a socially distanced way) your local friendly independent car repair workshop. They will have to means to help you if you ask nicely (and pay).

Best WFH Ergonomic Chair
Hey, I'm looking to purchase a ergonomic chair to WFH, will be sitting on the chair for 8+ hours each day and so any recommendations would be helpful :D . Thank you
Purchased a HM Aeron before Christmas and don’t regret it one bit (also consulted here for advice!) Think I spent £350 on my refurb in the end
Herman miller, humanscale, vitra, hag, etc would be the top end. More affordable would be orangebox, steelcase The top end stuff is better made, better ergonomics, more comfortable. You can pick up used humanscale 100-200. used orangebox 50+
Sihoo chairs from Amazon are a treat. You can get them for under £200

Any good computer chair deals out there?
I need something to work from home and I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the options available! looking for something around £120 or less, does anyone have any suggestions? thanks!
Ive found this one. £169.99 https://www.wayfair.co.uk/furniture/pdp/17-stories-amiogho-dining-set-with-4-chairs-u000709341.html?piid=
Check funkychunkyfurniture. Won't be £200 but real heavy duty rustic wooden furniture that will last for ages.
Ill have a look thanks
This one is nice :)
As noted above FB or Gumtree. There’s some real quality stuff there if you are interested. I got a JL glass and wood dining table for under £75 and 6 unmarked leather chairs - seller didn’t like - for under £100. 3 new stools - wife didn’t like - for £50. You wouldn’t know any of them weren’t brand new.
