The runcible household is on the verge of a complete reshuffle: runciblegirl's bedroom will become a bathroom, the bathroom will become a staircase to the loft, and the loft will become two new bedrooms.
And then there will be a place for everything (and everyone), and everything in its place.
My neighbour, who knows me well, understood the loft project immediately. "Imagine all the wonderful built-in storage", she squeaked.
Husband looked a bit harrassed.
But, whilst waiting for Ikea / Conran nirvana, I've started my storage odyssey on a slightly smaller scale. Son#1 has a bunk-bed with a tiny little shelf, and is always losing things over the edge. It's a long climb down the ladder in the dark, and soon, given the season, it will be a bit chilly outside the bed covers, so he needs a storage solution now.
And here it is:
|The front view - the red spotty pocket is elasticated along its top edge, and has been sewn vertically in two places to create three little pockets.|
|The back view, with two strips of velcro...|
|... (now you see why I needed the ribbon - it covers the stitching for that velcro)...|
|... and the velcro holds it in place over the rail of the bunk.|
Finally, the action shot - with torch and handkerchief safely in their pockets.
I wonder what the third pocket will hold?
