Have you ever noticed how small bedside tables are? Once you put your hand cream, your water glass, your notebook and your glasses down next to the bedside lamp, there is no room left for precious bedside reading. I need bedside reading and preferably a few choices; there is nothing worse than snuggling into bed at night and realising that you selected a dud book. We need options.
When the back thing happened, LOML hastily moved our bed down from upstairs to downstairs next to the computer. We had planned to move into this room anyway (Cappers’ old bedroom, she is now up with her sister), but not at quite the pace it happened.
The bed got plonked down where Cappers’ desk used to be and… oh look… the rail her pencil containers used to hang off is right next to the bed.
Cue the very-handy accidental bedside book rail. I’m absolutely keeping it!
