Changing bedsheets

There’s been a few times now that I struggle with various aspects of housework, like doing the laundry and folding clothes to put them away or pack

I’ve found ways to make doing all these easier over time, like using liquid tabs instead of washing powder so that I don’t have to struggle with lifting heavy boxes of washing powder, and I think if I ever lived alone I’d probably invest in a washer/dryer so that I wouldn’t have to faff around trying to hang things on a clothes horse or getting the clothes from one thing to the other.

That said, the one thing I don’t think I’ll ever be able to fathom, and, yes, I know you’re never supposed to say never, is changing my bed sheets. I know enough able-bodied people who are a lot taller than my tiny 4ft 10″ who find that really hard and say they prefer to do it with another person.

My balance isn’t great and I’m small so I don’t think I could really hold out a double duvet neatly with my arms outstretched without falling over, never mind getting the duvet cover over the top. I have enough trouble getting it back on the bed if it falls off in the middle of the night.

I can manage to put the pillows in the pillowcases fine, so that’s usually my contribution to the task.

I was just wondering if you guys had any suggestions of how I might be able to do this for myself one day.
