Just bought myself a kneeling pad.  £1.99 from GC - £9.99 in Homebase!!!  Couldn't quite bring myself to get the one with support bars on the side.  I'll give it a year.


Isn't it funny how age makes you think "Hmmm, comfy", rather than, "Wouldn't be seen dead in that!".  Must be getting old, although I only feel old when I am holding the hand of my better 'alf! image.

    support bars on the side- very useful for getting back up again instead of crawling round on all fours.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    My OH, keeps threatening to buy me one of the 'handles on the sides' type, I threaten to wrap it around his neck!!!  image  I do use a padded kneeler though - saves my knees a bit.

    image a kneeling pad certainly saves getting your knee's dirty and I like the look of the one's with supports, could you get one that looks and acts as a seat when turned the other way, no one would know what it was for then...just thinking ahead for when I'm 27 image.

    That's the sort. Only the other way up, it splayed under t he weightimage

    Yes, you will need an electric drill and the special hole cutter attachemnts. They look like cookie cutters and come in a multi pack of different sizes.
