A friend from Uni came to stay this weekend so I’m a bit late with linking up my challenge. It was whilst I was sorting out the spare room so that he could a) get to the bed and b) actually lie down in it that I decided on what my challenge was going to be.
One of the main items burying the bed was Arthur’s dismantled and as-yet unused cotbed and as I made space on the floor to stand up all the pieces and clear the bed so I could adorn it with my very classy purple sheets and Harry Potter duvet cover I came to the conclusion that it’s time for Arthur to move up in the world. And out of our bedroom.
Partly because he’s a big boy now and doesn’t really need to be taking up a large portion of what little floor space there is in our bedroom with his (beautiful, family heirloom) treasure cot and partly (mostly, actually) because he is rather filling said treasure cot now and would probably appreciate the space in a big cot. You know, so he can stretch out without hitting the ends – that kind of thing.
I will no doubt have to get my Dad involved in the actual construction part of this challenge as I haven’t the foggiest idea where to begin putting it all together and I think he took it apart (or at least helped to) so he may have a bit of a clue. Plus he’s just better at that kind of thing than I am – I barely know one end of a screwdriver from the other.
As for the actual act of moving Arthur in – that’s going to be the biggest challenge of all. I will get the cot all made up and neat and pretty and ready for him, I will get him ready for bed and I will cave and take him back to my bedroom so I can lie and listen to him snoring. At some point I will just have to get brave and put him to bed in his own room. In his new bed. Far away.
I will probably spend the first night leaping out of bed every five minutes to check on him & see if he needs feeding. I will also spend every night afterwards cursing the fact that I have to get right out of my nice warm bed to go and feed him. Oh well, at least it’s Summer and I have the spare bed’s duvet to wrap myself in if it’s chilly.
My little Bean is growing up. Fast.
