My mother got refunds from the government and decided to give me part of it for the bed. So I bought new mattresses and a different bed. The bed I wanted was not available for my size of bed, so I choose a prettier one whose price had just gotten down, so I was able to afford it. Here is the result in my bedroom (you have to open images on another tab with WordPress to see them full size, since they always shrink images to make them fit the width of the blogs):
I’m really happy, I feel like a princess when I’m in my new bed. Maurice as you can see likes the new bed too and has given his seal of approval.
I have other plans like replacing my numerous ugly bookcases by bigger and prettier ones, and eventually getting a new bedroom set.
