It'll take longer to hit the floor.

Probably my bedside book stash would cushion the fall...but that's another problem, can't reach the books on the floor now. Will have to go back to stacking them on the headboard and risking an avalanche!

Uncle JiM:
Or making a bigger stack of books

And then you can climb the stack of books to get into bed.

I would normally find a conversation about someone struggling to get into bed just because they changed their mattress a bit strange, but then I remember that Jenny was my yardstick for mapping crossable/uncrossable walls at the 2014 ASC, resulting in a change that got one rather tall WA local disqualified.... :)

Hopefully it wasn't your dad?

Actually the results show that he was never disqualified despite him protesting against himself to the computer operators!

Jenny - nah, Sten. He works at Curtin, so he knew the 1.5m wall in question and that it used to be marked passable and didn't check his map that closely. :)

Oh, that little debacle:

Cut the legs off the bed. I've done that.

I have fallen out of bed before. But it was a bunk bed. It was a bit painful but I had a good sleep on the floor when I eventually stopped crying.

Yeah I had trouble sleeping through all the crying last night.

Crying tears of joy when Diehard was finally over.

Cutting legs of the bed is very dangerous - you HAVE to get it right!

I'm not going to do that to the bed which was my pride and joy as my first major purchase when I moved out of home in 1997...
