Happy Monday

Good Morning everyone
Hope you are having a good day!

I dosed up on pain meds yesterday evening so managed
to get some sleep and feel better for it.

I am so excited about the house and what I have planned :-)
Hubby was questioning who was going to do all the work
Him of course :-)

Our new bed is coming on Wednesday so I am really excited.
About 5 years ago we spent a fortune and bought
one of the really expensive matresses that
molds to you.  It had springs under the foam as well
so it was meant to be the best of the best.
As you can guess from what I am saying it wasn't.
The foam decided it didn't like moulding to us
it decided it was better at the side of the bed.

As I am having a few issues with balance and judging where things are
we decided to get a whole new bed.
The one we have at the moment is low and has a wooden surround.
My legs are full of bruises from walking into it.
We are getting a divan and this time we have made sure we got a guarantee.

On Saturday I picked up a wonderful package:
