First of all, welcome to my two new folowers via Bloglovin - Ouija and Tracy.
At last, a new bed and mattress has arrived in the bedroom. Only the third in 32.5 years of marriage. Got fed up of rolling into the middle! They were both bought in the sales, 50% off (allegedly).
The bed frame (first time not having a divan) is light ash and the mattress a Sealy with a memory like additional mini mattress on the top of the mattress itself.
Here it is just put together:
Mind you, might also have to change over to fitted sheets, on which I am not too keen, as we squashed our fingers and hands constantly, whilst trying to tuck in the sheet.
The 'old' bed, a small double and still in reasonable condition, as is the mattress even though it was no longer good for my back, for anyone not married to someone with 'the princess and the pea' problem, is being picked up next week by a charity furniture warehouse. Paying the council £15 or so to send it to landfill was not an option.
This bed should last now 'forever' even if the mattress has to be changed eventually.
