Since we will soon have the luxury of a spare bedroom, we had to go bed shopping today.
We will move our existing bed into the spare bedroom, and will have a brand new bed in our bedroom. The house we have been renting/house sitting has a king sized bed which has been fantastic. Previously we have had a queen which gets a bit cosy when the boy of the house inevitably wanders in for a cuddle in the early hours. It also has a latex mattress - the man of the house has the unsocial habit of getting up at 4:30 am to cycle with his posse, and latex has this wonderful property called "minimal partner disturbance" - I don't hear or feel him get up and leave. This is a good thing.
We went to the mattress shop today - unfortunately due to timing we had to take the boy of the house with us. This was not a good thing. Lots of excitement, jumping on all the beds, and strained smiles from the saleswoman who clearly didn't believe my repeated assurances that "he's not normally like this". The photo below shows him streaking through the store.
We had to buy a mattress after all that.....
blink and you'll miss him
So we decided on a King sized ensemble - but not latex. Too many $$$ and also we think maybe too hot in those summer months in Queensland. Our bedroom is small and the bed will take up a lot of the room but so be it. We have also decided on a bed head from here - Richmond in Catalina Storm. It won't be ready until February, but I'm excited!
