I panicked recently when my husband’s brother decided to turn up unexpectedly after spending six months in Australia. He called us in the morning to inform as they would be arriving afternoon and got we put him up for several days until he decided where his next stop would be. Of course we said yes, but we were already overfull with our three children and us two adults squeezed into a three-bedroom house along with two rescued unruly dogs and a cat.
On top of that our kids were still sleeping in children’s beds and we did not even have an adult sized bed for Donald.
Richard suggested we look online and I was delighted to see that many companies offer beds delivered the next day. On top of that there is no charge for this service plus the items tend to be around 30% cheaper than those you would buy locally.
Everything turned out just fine and we took delivery of our new mattress and teak bed frame the very next day. We squeezed the kids into one room and set the bed up in the smaller room where my daughter Annabelle usually sleeps. Annabel was delighted to have her uncle as a guest, and even more thrilled to take over the adult sized new bed when he left.
