Surely the best deck chair in the world......

I have been coveting a penguin design deckchair since I first saw them online about two years ago. And now I have one...and the absolute best part is that it only cost £30 instead of the usual going rate on various websites of about £60. I have to say, and quickly before I get in trouble, that this bargain buy had nothing to do with me. I am the worst haggler in the world, I would be rubbish on The Apprentice. No, the OH deserves all the credit for his amazing haggling skills and at Waterstones no less. He spotted two penguin deckchairs at our local branch recently that had been marked down to £40 as they had clearly been there a while. So of course I wanted one but luckily the OH stopped by to purchase and mentioned that they looked like they had been there for years, so how about he takes one off their hands for £30...and they said yes! Kudos to the salesman for being flexible. So we are now the owner of what I surely feel must be the best deckchair in the world. And it matches my jeeves mug!
