While Obama and Mitt were arguing up a storm last night, I called time on our own furious debate here on renoVoter. I got busy counting the votes (well, my computer did) and there was one clear winner: forget those space and safari schemes, our study is going to be a botanic bolthole. I’ve already cracked on with the most important part of any makeover – consumer research. First thing tomorrow, I’m heading to B&Q for this lamp – at only £15, it’s a bit of a steal. Fingers crossed, when you check back next you can see it in situ in our study!
