New Mattresses

My two new single mattresses for my guest beds came this morning - they are very grand.   The company appointed today as the delivery day and said they would inform me of a two hour slot.   This didn't materialise, but I didn't expect to be awakened at ten past seven by a knock on the door with them - and I was his third call of the day.   My son came round (he has broken up from school) as soon as he was up and about and carried the old ones out into the garage (our tip closes on Wednesdays) and put the new ones on to the beds and when he had gone I remade the beds up and washed the mattress protectors as these ones already come with their own zip-on covers.   By the time I had done all that and cooked
myself a lunch (and had a quarter of an hour ukulele/banjo duet practice with him to boot) I felt as though I had done a full day's work.

This afternoon, much to Tess's joy, friend S called and took her for a walk.   Tess goes crazy when anyone comes to walk her - and it makes me feel guilty that I can't walk her further myself.

Ten past seven? Goodness me. We never get a delivery that early. With my level of deafness the poor delivery man would have been ringing the bell for an hour before I realised he was there!

Nice to get a delivery done and dusted that early. I'd of been up two hours by then so it wouldn't of been a problem.
Do your local council not collect the old mattresses (for a charge).

Better to have the delivery early than have to wait around all day, as happened to my brother recently. He then got a call at six in the evening telling him it would be the next day. It's great that you have friends who will walk Tess for you.

How good your son was available for the heavy lifting. Mattresses are serious work.

Wouldn't the delivery man have also helped with carrying the old ones to the garage (for a tip, maybe)?
Anyway - glad you are happy with the new mattresses, and I am sure your next overnight guests will confirm their grandness!

When you wrote " he has broken up from school" I had a sudden vision of a small boy in grey shorts, long grey socks, and a cap !!

It must be the season for new beds - mine is being delivered this morning. Hope you recovered from your busy day/morning yesterday. It is very humid here and at 10 am I already feel exhausted. Never mind, summer is here and I moaned long enough while waiting for it!

I see we are all being spammed, what I don't understand is why sell American credit cards on UK sites. I religiously delete them everytime, wondering at their stupidity.
Our oil man comes early in the morning, because the depot is in the next village, but at least you did not have to wait around all day for the new mattresses.

It's always interesting to hear these little details of daily life that are different in the US vs the UK: any mattress delivery here would automatically include removel and disposal of your old mattress and they'd unwrap and put your new mattresses in place as well. No tip required, but always appreciated. Generally, they give you a time window of about two hours and call half an hour before they arrive.

JayCee - I too am very deaf but my little terrier has a loud bark so will always wake me.
Thanks everyone for your contributions.

Hi,i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called MR ANTHONY. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for only money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions.. Four days later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, to my greatest surprise It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000 daily. ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address anthonbradley646@gmail.com
