Ladies, my 4 year old laffs when watching his mommy trying to get out of bed in the morning! It's a joke, seriously i cant just "get up" i have to turn myself to one side,hold onto the back rest and push myself up even then it takes 2-3 attempts to push myself up Same with the settee, we have a reclining one, and OH sits and laffs at me trying to get up, i have to raise my legs and swing them down to get me up, i must look a right sight! If next door could see through walls, well, they'd have a right laugh!!! ill be bed bound in a few weeks!!!
