I should probably clarify that he was jumping on the bed to try and grab a spider off the ceiling whilst I cowered on my dressing table shouting 'Kill it! Kill it!!'
Anyhow, this means that we got to buy a new bed and I chose this bad boy from Argos.
Building stuff together is one of my favourite marriage time projects. Marriage time for us I anything we do 'just us' - usually when the kids are in bed.
Building stuff (even from flat pack) is immensely satisfying and even more so when the manufacturer glued the instructions to the box so that they are unuseable and you have to work blind together. Together, as a couple, we are overcomers.
It does tend to highlight our different skill sets though. I always open everything with a claw hammer, whilst Matt likes to find the 'right' tool for each bit of the project.
I call this 'unitasking' (a la the unclutterer) and prefer to make my hammer multi-functional.
Either way, we made it through, we have a great new bed, and here it is in all it's glory.
