They slept in bunk beds like these. Plain and simple with a ladder at one end
No modular rounded corners. No, you go this way and I’ll go that way
No drawers, book shelves or boxy steps
No roofs (rooves ?) on top or make believe houses
And definitely no playground equipment
Cute as they may look…..no barn doors – gates – or windows complete with greenery
BECAUSE. There’s no way Catherine could have made up the top bunk. As it was I struggled Resorting to standing on the lower bed heads then lifting the mattress to hook the fitted sheets over the ends. Whichever boy was on top that night lugged their doona up with them
Short of having hired help do it for them Could somebody tell me How on earth normal people (aka mothers) change those sheets?

Fun Friday – the day you forget the worries of the week. I think we all deserve a smile at the moment 😊
Wouldn’t it be great to say I’d done something different – unfortunately here in Victoria it’s still the same ol’ same ol’…….well that’s not quite true but it’s too involved to try and explain 😒
We have to look on the bright side though and I’m sure that in a few months time we’ll be able to do something different……again.
Mind you, over the last couple of weeks I did find something to do that I hadn’t done for a while – I put the ‘big boys’ knitting to one side and had a go at these…..again
Trawling through some older parts of the blog turned up this post from 2018 which along with this one from 2012 reminded me that giving should be fun……not just knitting from one end of the row to the other.
A couple of little Teds, and what look like squares which (if you follow the instructions in the 2012 post) will turn into basic fingerless mittens, are keeping me occupied at the moment.
I’m still feeling the disappointment of my last read so decided that it was time for one of those ‘I really should read this sometime’ books ……one that after being rescued from an op shop has been lying neglected on a shelf here at home for years.
So far so good, after a ‘strange’ courtship Maxim and his new wife have just arrived at Manderley. Small (tiny) print means it’s daytime reading, I have to concentrate so it’ll be read (and savoured) in small doses. Decisions Decisions – oh what to do….. read or knit. I suppose finishing Ted’s faces would definitely be a start 🙂
Ginny from Small Things hosts a monthly meme called Yarn Along Sort of a ‘show and tell’ featuring the knitting and reading you’ve been doing recently. Do pop over and see what others have been up to.
All those years ago I wasn’t a ‘real’Beatles fan, I might have known a lot of the words, they were hard to miss being played on the radio all the time but I didn’t wait with baited breath for their next album to be released….heck, I couldn’t even tell you the names of their albums.
Anyway I saw this somewhere and thought it would be good for Fun Friday 😊
I’ll go first with one I do remember – Yellow Submarine Who’d like to go next??
