I have to say the bed would be my priority as I've got back and neck problems, so a comfy bed is a must!

Then again I also like eating, I just don't know how cook!

It would be the new bed and cooker which should certainly last for the term of the IVA.

Skip - ask Dave whether or not I know how to switch our cooker on and off!

Now I love cooking! and if I cook from scratch it keeps the food shopping bill down [:D]

....but, my bed really is bad, we have had it for 7 years and it was really cheap at the time. Matress is so bad that you can see the dips in it even when the bed is made! does hurt my back in the morning.

I would definitely do the bed!

I hate cooking - hubby does all of ours!
