Look who turned up early this afternoon (above): Mr and Mrs Ikea pulled up outside shortly before one-o’clock-and-time-for-lunch (see Genesis for details) and delivered our new mattress (below).
I know that you can’t tell from the photograph alone, but that’s the most comfortable bed I’ve ever laid down upon in that whole bedroom. I forgot to take a photo before we made the bed.
It’s firm, it’s soft, it’s comfortable and no more dirty-great springs in my back at night. Happy Christmas, Jane! (That’s our Christmas present to one another: a mattress. Proving once and for all that we are definitely ‘grown-ups’!)
