One really good thing about being anxious and a little woozy and wound up is that things get done. Anything to avoid making a phone call, checking that email, replying to something that’s not so much fun means that shit gets cleaned. Sunday it was sheets! All 3 beds and the spare room as well. That’s 4 sheets! 4 beds to make one being a top bunk which deserves extra points for it’s pain in the arseness.
I was making the bed up and trying to explain to Rob how to do it just so. Yes, I am a little cray cray when it comes to the bed making but I was showing him the “proper” way i.e “my” way and the “right” way to do when he questioned me on my top sheet placement. MY TOP SHEET PLACEMENT! He questioned the fact that the top sheet was faced down (i.e pattern on the sleeping body) rather than pattern out. How very dare he!
I was quick to explain that this was the correct way to do. It was how my mother taught me how to do it and how I recall my Holly Hobby sheets on my bottom bunk bed to be. Pattern down so that when you made the bed and folded the top sheet down, the pattern was face out. Your body got to enjoy the pattern while the show was all out for the world to see. Der!
But then. Well, a seed of doubt was planted. Was this right? Could I be, um, WRONG?! Surely not. I said I would ask the world, just to be sure. He said I was “dead set mental”. We’ll wait and see about that now won’t we?
So? Am I? Crazy that is? That’s right isn’t it? The correct top (patterned) sheet making procedure is it not? Mum, promise me you will at least leave me a comment telling me you had it right with Holly all those years ago? Please….
