    Would you tell me if it's correct to use the continuous form of sit, please?
    For example:
    Yesterday a kind woman was sitting on that chair that you want to sit today!
    Thank you :)

    Yes, it is - because what happened yesterday with this chair is linked to what is happening right now.
