Under three weeks ago we ordered a new bed from Harvey Norman's.

Monty, the salesman, told us it would be 5-6 weeks until it arrived.

In the meantime, we picked up the new headboard, which we LOVE.

So... we got a call from Monty a couple of days ago to let us know the bed was here already!

I was amazed to be honest.  To arrive early is unheard of.

It is being delivered ...

***  TODAY !  ***

Stew has today and tomorrow off work (using up some holiday time cos he has far too much accrued).... so he's home to help get our old bed out of our room so the new one can come in.

Lacy is going to have our old bed.  Makes me laugh how we hand our old stuff on to one or other, or other ... of our kids.  πŸ˜†πŸ˜…πŸ‘

My biggest fear is that the new bed is NOT comfortable, and we both hate it.  How bad would that be?
Fingers and toes are firmly crossed it is OK.  If nothing else, I will smile seeing a FLAT bed top, instead of one that has two long indentations on either side where the pillow top has FLATTENED permanently.   Such a horrible look. 

Now... here's a question for you.

ABOVE:  What is 'wrong' in this photo???
I might just hold off publishing any of your answers for a while, let's see how many of you see it! lol

ABOVE:  This is the haul Amanda bought yesterday ... I HAD two round Wonky House Placemats.  Now I have to make more.  Luckily I know how to now.

Right, I shall now get up, help Stew with the bed then get into my Studio.  I'm dying to get the latest Wonky House Runner finished.


9.31 am:  Wow, there's quite a few observant people out there!  Stew took AGES to find the thing 'wrong'.  lol

I'm still not gunna publish the guesses, keep them coming!

Our old bed is now in the garage, ready to go over to Lacy's on the weekend sometime.  Not heard from the delivery company about when to expect our new bed yet.  I will give them till 11 then ring Harvey Norman's to find out what's going on.  I totally expect it to arrive at 4.50 this afternoon.

But hopefully I'm wrong.

And BOOM!  I am wrong. Stew just got a call saying the bed will be here between 10.30 and 12.  Yaaa!
I can feel an afternoon nap coming on already.  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜„πŸ˜†

12.16 pm:  

ABOVE:  And it's here... and Stew has assembled it and now I'm just waiting for the duvet cover to dry then I can make the bed and take a photo.
Stew  has raised our new headboard too.... it's gunna look so lovely.

I'm still in the Studio, finally caved in and turned on the Heat Pump as I'm freezing.  It's a miserable day today.  So wet and cold.
Very stormy further north, where they have had two weeks worth of rain in one night.

SPARKLING:  OMG your comment made me crack up laughing!  So, so true.

I will start publishing the comments soon...virtually everyone is getting it right.

I wonder how Stew and I never noticed for WEEKS, yet it's right in front of our faces every day???

CONGRATS to everyone who guessed correctly!   WOW so many guesses too.  

I just cooked Stew and I a healthy lunch.... bacon and onion with scrambled eggs thrown in, and a little bit of grated cheese.  It was really nice.  

Time now to catch up on Home and Away then perhaps a nap?  Gotta try that bed.

No nap happened.  We decided to do a 'Top Up' grocery shop ahead of the weekend.
So we did.  Right on end of school time...  the traffic was crazy.  

Now home again and it's starting to cool down, time to go around and close all the curtains and turn on the heater.

Dinner tonight will be Pork Sausages and veges.  I reckon Stew will be our chef tonight.  *smiles*

Well Stew did well with dinner, it was really tasty.  Lots of cauliflower and broccoli which we love.
And now... it's veg out time.
Can't wait to get to bed for a change.
Usually I put it off until I literally can't keep my eyes open.


  1. An upside down W,lol. We just gave our gas lawnmower to our grandson as it was getting too hard for hubby to pull on the starter. We bought a new battery operated push button one. Worked like a damn, twice!! Then the battery wouldn't charge. Took it back to the store and the battery and the charger are defective, 3 weeks to get the replacement!! Grandson had to bring the gas mower back last night so we could mow our lawn!!

  2. East and West on the weather vane are upside down. I am so pleased that the shop is up and running and you are happy playing.

    Morning Chris I think the North and South bit is missing from the weather vane. How exciting about the bed it will be great for sure. George's Mum.

  4. Tag still on birdhouse?

  5. Wahoo for a new bed. Amanda had a nice shopping spree in the studio. Your East West on the pig is upside down !!

  6. Anonymous7:41 AM

    Is there a shop receipt on top of the orange birdhouse thingy? Kj

  7. Weather vane upside-down

  8. What's wrong in the photo? Is it the birdhouse hanger upside down?
    The wonky houses are so cute. Amanda's kiddos should enjoy them.

    I have a very expensive memory foam that I loathe. I put pillows under my lower back, knees, and feet every night. It's beyond ridiculous. Fingers crossed your new bed will be awesome.

    1. Our pillow top had memory foam in it... and that was the problem at the end of the day... IT LOST IT'S MEMORY and stayed flat. I am so sorry you got a memory foam mattress, I can't believe they are still selling them! And SO expensive too. Perhaps you need to do what we did and bite the bullet and get a new bed?

  14. Anonymous9:17 AM

    It looks as though the "W" on your weather vane is upside down. Is the "E" upside down as well?

    The weather cow east west is upside down? I hope Brylees test is negative and she is feeling better soon.

    1. We refer to that critter as a pig here in the USA - hahahaha. I also hope Brylee tests negative. I am sure she will.

    The W and E are upside sown on the weather vane. Have a great day 😊

    Hi if your bed is intially too hard you could buy a topper, I bought one very cheap on special as long as it is at least 1000gsm, it is filled with polyester ball fibre fill sewed into a bamboo cotton cover sewed in squares, I buy it for just my side as my husband likes a hard the NOrth South arrow missing from the weather vane?


  25. Whats wrong with the photo? Your "West and East" are upside down.

  26. Pretty sure the weather vane is assembled upside down as there is an "M" vs "W" for west. Ranee (MN)

    1. Does that MN mean Minnesota? I am in Minnesota, that is pretty ironic if that is the case!

  27. Nothing wrong with the photo. Under the pig it says ME!!!!

  28. The west/east is upside down on the weather pig. I so hope the bed works for you. We bought a $5000 bed that works for me but makes Simon sore, so will probably be looking to replace again. Have to have us both comfortable.

    Where’s the pics of the bed mum... is it comfy?? Waaake up! “Gigglin”

    1. Pics tomorrow. Have not laid down on it yet... might have to be tonight. No nap.

  33. LOL I saw the M instead of W almost straight away, but it reminded me of Warehouse curtains we put up in our living room years ago. We lived with them for several months before noticing that one had the pattern upside down!

  34. Is the weather vane M upside down?

  35. Hope you had a restful night in the new bed. I too have a pillowtop with the exact same problem. It needs to go!

  36. Waiting for the comfort report on the new bed.....
