When I was a child, family staying over for Christmas would have to make do with a shared bed, a settee or the floor but if you’re planning a more comfortable welcome for your visitors you might be thinking of offering them a real bed of their own.
Or you could just be thinking of sprucing up your home with some new furniture or adding a bit more storage or hanging space.
Either way, time is running out. It might have felt like summer for the past few days but we are now into the last month of autumn.
You don’t have long, in other words.
But worry not. There’s still time to order flatpack furniture from IKEA or elsewhere and to book my time to build it for you. I will be busy, though, so please don’t leave it too much longer!
