that would be no good for me as I need the storage space. In my mind I am thinking more of a metal bed. I found several but as I need to sit on the end of my bed to use my computer (the one that refuses to connect to the internet today as it wont recognise the adapter) these were not ecaxtly going to be ideal.
Good space under the bed for drawers but could be uncomfortable to sit on the end of it!! Besides they all seemed to have wooden slats as the base. Hmmmm not convinced that these would survive my boys. Anyway next we looked at wooden beds, mother suggested this one!!
Now this could be interesting in my love life but can't you just imagine my boys swinging off these posts...they just wouldn't be able to resist. So another store, more divans, more metal beds with fancy iron work then I found the bed for me. Wooden with wooden slats that have a metal support running down the middle the slats are not flat so have more give in them so they stand a better chance of survival. I am having a different matress from the one on the bed in the store though as the one on the opposite bed is an orthodedic one and cheaper so hopefully no more back pain. I am going back tomorrow to make a deposit as the store has a sale on and after tuesday the price goes back to double what it is now. So middle of next week I should have my new bed.
And to solve the computer problem I am going to see if I cna get a cheap laptop then the boys can have the desk top in their room and I can sit whereever I like with the laptop. There will be no need for the boys to even come into my room let along break my bed again !!!
I will comit murder if this one gets broken (unless it is broken by me and my man).
update 2.30pm Sunday
I have just been back to the store and ordered and paid for my new bed £463 booo hooo I know it was a good deal but it is still an awful lot of money for me to spend in one go. I just hope that I will start to sleep better once I get it. Delivery date is tuesday 13th May so just over a week to wait (big smiles)
