Earlier tonight, as my husband and I were having dinner our dog started howling at the door.
We got up to investigate the noise that had startled her. It turned out that our next door neighbours were in the midst of struggling to get a brand new mattress in their front door.
They weren’t having an easy time of it. For some reason they had decided to buy a king sized bed … even though their house (identical to ours) is very small and a king sized bed will probably just about take up most of the master bedroom.
Anyway .. since they were having such a hard time getting the mattress – a latex mattress BTW, inside their house, we decided to try to give them a hand.
It’s actually a good thing that we helped because we had to lift the mattress over the upstairs banister in order to get it to the top floor. It would never have made the turn at the top of the stairs without all of us lifting it up otherwise.
So I presume that they’re now putting their new bed together. I think with all that lifting and building they’ll probably be tired enough to sleep tonight. I hope their new bed is comfortable!
