It could almost be the title of a book, don't you think?
I've given up my claim on our double bed and leave hubby to sleep alone at night. He's able to shift himself around more freely to try to get comfortable and I miss the worst of the snoring when he's on his back! It suits us both!
So, I've put a mattress down on the living room floor, and of course, our old pig dog thinks this is wonderful. We let him sleep inside - because he's old and as he is part greyhound his coat is very fine.
Every evening, after I've helped hubby from the couch back to the bed, I return to the lounge to find Diesel curled up on my makeshift bed on the floor.
You'll remember that Diesel was the father of the puppies. And having mentioned puppies, Bruiser and Jem are now 7 months old, great gangling teenagers, full of energy. I feed them up on the deck so that hubby can see them out the window. Luckily we have an orchard they can be left playing in during the day so that exercise is not a problem.
Anyway, Diesel and I bunk down on the mattress on the floor together. As I said, he's old and his breath isn't quite as sweet as hubby's so he has to stay down the lower half of the mattress. He's loving it and will probably think he deserves a mattress for life after a few weeks of this.
Hubby and I are both hoping that the date for surgery comes up soon. Pig dog is happy to postpone it indefinitely!
