One incredibly sunny Friday (who'd have thunk it in Winter), two runners Mayuko and Mridula ran to the lovely Mrs K's house to help her move a bed so she could make room for a much more comfortable hospital bed. We were met by two lovely carers who offered had already been at the house helping Mrs. K move some books. After getting Mrs K downstairs, we began strip what seemed like 30 layers off her bed. Very comfy bed Mrs K! We then proceeded to take her mattress down the stairs, followed by the base units of her bed. We had to remove her head board using a screw driver where Mayuko told us a fun fact. In Japan, the philip's head and flat head screwdriver are referred to as plus and minus screwdriver! Make a lot more sense than the english names! After being profusely thanked and being called good eggs by the carers, Mayuko and I headed back home, to enjoy what turned out to be a very soggy day. Till next time!
