To begin with today I took a walk to the far away cheap supermarket , so that I could buy a few things which have disappeared in my usual shop. I’m not very fond of walking uphill carrying shopping so I don’t go very often. When I had my scooter it was my favourite place to shop.
However it was a pleasant walk downhill….and I saw my first poppies this year.
I was glad I went. It wouldn’t hurt if I was a bit fitter.
Then the real work of the day began.
My futon type bed sofa is not much use any longer. The mattress is useless and gives me a sore back.
Plan A was to take the frame to bits and make it into something else.
Plan B was to convert it into a single bed. I have a single mattress which would have fitted fine. And I sleep in the gallery in the summer as it’s cooler.
That didn’t work as I couldn’t make a flat base.
Plan C was to put it back to being a sofa ,but subtly change the shape by stuffing an old quilt down the back. And then using a neutral coloured cover so that it was less visible.
That worked a bit as it was at least tidier.
I tried sitting a few paintings on it , but they looked a bit silly.
Then I remembered I had a single bed frame and wondered if I could use it to make the sofa into a sort of table.
After that I tidied up my work space a bit.
And updated my work diary.
Now it’s definitely wine time. The door has been open most of today, but now it’s getting a bit chilly. Time to turn on the gas heater and bring in the solar lights.
