      I know, I really want to make them – but the wind picks up quite a lot on the balcony of my flat, so I think it’s just a pipe dream until I have a house!

  2. Love the bath tube sofas – I’ve wanted one since first watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s but you never can find a spare bath tub and blow torch when you need one! Might try the cat bed instead
