Just found out my parents MIGHT ARRIVE TONIGHT, instead of tomorrow... AAAAAGH. The frantic clean up begins. Must find the bed PDQ. It's there! Honestly. Under all the stabilizers, T-shirts, boxes of threads and more.... Where to stash it all? There is no closet in this room, hence the reason it is a bedroom/computer room/sewing room. All the walls are open to use. Weeehooooo.


Well, I had better sign off and tidy up. My luck is going that they will make it here tonight instead of stopping part way as originally planned.... And the pooch still needs a walk too. [Pulling hair out now] LOL

G'night my friends!

Guess I am lucky have all my gear in my basement, doesn't happen often that the gang arrives here as we usually head up to where everyone is...have had to clear the decks the odd time but it is a pain after to try and remember where you stashed everything...hang in there and enjoy your folks ...

Good luck, and enjoy your parent's visit. I know exactly how you feel. My son and he's wife has already had to sleep in a tent, on the backyard's lawn on a visit to us. Luckily we live in sunny South Africa and it was nice and warm.

You need to buy those bed risers... it will give you almost a foot of "hidden" space under the bed... lol

Good luck, think many of us have been there too. I share my sewing area with my other half who repairs cellos. Currently I have just had to move a cello so I can use my machine. Enjoy your parents visit

Well, t-shirts & stabilizer are pretty soft to sleep on, could you tell them it's a new "euro-comfort" mattress topper? Hee hee hee, best of luck!!! Marji

I always found that empty suitcases work great to "HIDE" stuff:)
