    Are we talking lady gardens/fur burgers, or something with an arguably thicker pile?

    Del wants a pink carpet in our main bedroom, when we do it up, and I've given her a firm NO [which as you can imagine didn't go down well], as she's already 'princessed' her dressing room, so I'm not having our main bedroom going the same way

    I know what you're thinking, and that I'll give in and let her have it, but on this one I'm determined to stand firm!

    So your away to buy it then

    No quite right if you don't want it. It should suit both.

    It was a very thick one that I put down in Irene's room as she loved deep reds.
    It's now in my room to cover the bare carpet threads lol. No way I'm fitting a new carpet. Too much work now. Cost a fair amount too tho. I quite like it now it's moulted.
