Good morning all.I have a settee that reclines at both ends
I've had it for about 4 years and I love it.Last night I was sat really comfy as usual legs up watching teli,then we had a power cut. The recliner is electrically operated,and I was stuck. There I was in pitch black,with my legs in the air not able to move.My husband could not do any thing for laughing,so he was no help.I just thought thankfully i wasn't on my own. Have a nice day.Angel4ux
We've solved this problem by gettting a gas one.
Hi Ray can you smoke sitting on one of those?
oh angel, you have made my day! not that I am pleased about you getting stuck. The spade might just come in useful just now
Giggle Giggle, this raised a chuckle, but poor you
Angel, you COULD, but it might invalidate the insurance. Suggest you get an oil one.
Oil that's a good idea, I could rub some on my joints also. Gas is definitely a no no with my track record I'm sure ill go to bed one night in Skegness and i'll wake up in Newcastle.ANGEL
Just caught up with this Angel, sorry to laugh at your predicament but..............
Tut, tut - nasty Pebble!
Well I'm blowed , after reading this thread My husband woke me during the night to go to the toilet it was pitch black .. We had had a power cut .
The last time this happened he had got to the top stair wih me behind him when the lights went out . The worse possible place , fortunately I don't panick but it was a bit sticky at the time . I have since put a small battery camping light upstairs , It is very helpful and has a carrying handle . it is quite bright and came in very handy last night .
On the occasional evening I go out and he is left on his own I leave a lamp ready beside him just in case along with one of the new little lights that you canjust press ..
I am thinking of writing a book of tips that I have used ..
Good morning all.Its ok I laugh at myself all the time.My face muscles are well used.If you don't smile your face will crack,believe me ,
I've seen a few of those.
Hi Johnnie,just read your post.It would be loverly if you could share your tips with us.Angel
Yes I have an electric reclining chair , but it has a battery back-up for power cuts. I also have easy battery touch lamps in every room , so I know I will always be able to see and hopefully not fall.
I had my recliner plumbed into my toilet via a couple of archimedean screws
So I'm pretty much covered every day. Especially if I hand crank it the in the wrong direction.
:) I know it wasn't funny for you but the image your post conjured up
really brightened my day hope it was a short power-cut.
I once "froze" in the doorway to the local public loos - how's that for instant
unpopularity ?! There were people trying to get in and others trying to get out & me
standing there like an embarrassed fence-post.....eventually a hefty passer-by lifted me to one side.
Hi Eck are you on the same meds has me?
Hi Pulla Did the gentlemam think you were a cardboard cut out.
I hate public loos I always have trouble with the locks
Only if he thinks cardboard blushes :)
what a good idea plumbing the toilet into the chair lol. I will ask th OCC Tther apist that one ..

sorry i should not laugh,first it ur handbag in the car door now the recliner,dare i say things come in threes

Did you know that they recently auctioned off a toilet roll from the Abbey Road studio which had been REJECTED by the Beatles!?
They'd complained that it was too hard & shiny, and demanded a better quality replacement!
