And something odd happened yesterday when it was delivered. We received a lovely mattress which is truly like sleeping in a very fluffy cloud. But in addition, we received a large bed base, made of deep mocha suede, which is made to fit with the mattress.
The invoice is confusing, our order is confusing, the extremely surly delivery man didn't want to talk about it, and the website of the multinational 6 star hotel which also sells beds did not explain exactly what it is we ordered or didn't order.
So we truly cannot work out whether our new bed base is a mistake, or a kind gift. I am inclined to the latter, as I sort of deserve a kind gift. (And it is nice to know there are people out there looking out for me even if it is a global corporation)
What it does mean is that we need to decommission our bed, and find a bed head.
As much as I like the drama of the padding, or the shaping, the truth is that I will end up with something plain and simple and dark blue, just like the rest of the room:
Now I know you can DIY headboards, there are a million little step by steps out there on this. But I have a confession. My DIY stuff looks like crap. So I think I will get a professional to do it. I have found this place who makes them up to order. Does anyone know of anywhere else which can do bedheads?
Weird Chemo Side Effect No 3 - as if I didn't have enough ethico-legal dilemmas to deal with along the lines of should we return the accidentally delivered bed base, I have now discovered that my hair is falling out again, after a short respite where it grew a bit. There is only one response to this: arrgggghhhh. My new approach is to not look at my hair at all until this ludicrous and ocassionally surreal experience is over (on 20 June).
