Well here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into.
…says Laurel to Hardy, on more than one occasion.
I’m not even sure how it started really but all of a sudden I end up buying new beds and mattresses and I’ve committed to helping paint our large bedroom. All of this will necessitate re-organising furniture in bedrooms and performing a three-way desk swap. And the temperature is going back up so doing any of that is going to be fun, fun, fun in the sun.
However one set of bunk beds we got shortly after we moved in here 16 years ago, passed on by a friend who also had 4 boys. I can’t remember where the other set of bunk beds came from but they weren’t new either. They did all get new mattresses at some point but they weren’t expensive. It feels like an extravagance but it’s not really and it’s well deserved.o
So 4son who has the largest bedroom in the house that all four used to share, and now only has to share with 2son in the holidays now gets a triple sleeper, which is a single on top of a double, as well as a reasonable mattress. 3son gets a small double and his big brother will have to sleep on the sofa bed when he comes round. 3son was moaning that his bedroom was inadequate, failing to remember how excited he was to first get his own bedroom, which was my study.
I didn’t need a project to take me through the holidays. I have got enough to do and wanted space to do nothing but that seems to have gone. On the other hand these are changes that will do us all good and it’s not as if anyone is leaving home anytime soon.
