    Snap Gary, we did the same 7 years ago. Great for a good night's sleep. Hate it when we go to my sister's as she only has a double bed for us. Only stay a couple of nights. That's good though, as, "Relatives are like fish, they go off after 3 days"

    She's about as foreign as you can get by distance, lives in a weird country, and it ain't her birthday anyway.

    Pushed together huh.
    There are a number of issues with that.

    1)I'd have to buy 2 new beds, and that's more expensive than just a new mattress
    2)Er....meeting in the middle so to speak could be interesting...leave that to your imagination
    3)I'd also have to buy new bedding to suit these beds - and new electric blankets
    $999?! I was looking to spend $99.

    Last time I bought a mattress it cost me $220.
    Excellent , firm, good quality etc.

    2) meeting in the middle......... that went away a long time ago (if I am thinking correctly about your worries)

    Haha, why? Having ailments doesn't make it impossible, just um, gentler.

    Maybe so, but for years we have always brought cheaper beds and ended up regretting it, this time these were at Half Price, normally $1999 and they are fully adjustable to suit -- the homer Simpson -- bed goes up bed goes down They can be adjusted several ways to suit what ever is the most comfortable to the person, back, knees etc. ( see the link in previous post)

    Trust me they dont "move apart" even when the Dog Jumps in the middle every morning -- time to get up, hes a 55KG monster.

    What SWMBO has done is we buy two sets of sheets, each bed bottom has its own sheets as gary mentioned, we then have two Duvets ( cheap ones) The Top sheet SWMBO sewed them together, so the seam is down the middle ( that way you can tell who steals the top sheet), and we have a big bed spread that covers the lot. The fitted sheets are not expensive name brands , got them ( set, top and bottom) from KMart around $20 each set -- Work fine.

    I have owned our actual bed for 4 years. The headboard is different and the mattress has been replaced twice. The first lasted the longest.......
    I don't want a bed, the bed is fine, no problems at all.

    Just a mattress. It must be firm. That's all.

    The sewing sheets thing, ugh, I really hate that, my mum used to do that to fit my brothers bed after he got a bigger one.
    Nothing worse than that seam IMO. BUt besides the point, each to their own. I just said I'm looking and if I find one on sale great, if not, we'll live with it a while longer. And buy a mattress, not a bed, not sheets, just a mattress.
