The new mattress

New mattress has arrived - it's a lot thicker than the old one and I was pleased to see that my measurements hadn't gone astray - it fitted the bed perfectly.
I've never had a king single mattress before and realised how difficult it is to actually get king single bed linen.  It's a lot longer than your normal mattress - even the Queen and King... so it will be tricky getting bed linen...
Managed in the meantime to get a flat sheet from the Op Shop to fit it temporarily... I may need to sew some from old bedsheets and it will mean piecing ones that aren't exactly matching... hopefully he doesn't mind the patchwork look... here it is with the new quilt on - quite fetching.
