What I Was Reading
So, I was reading this vintage romance novel, A Gem of a Girl by Betty Neels, which begins like this:
“Gemma was at the top of the house making beds when she heard the ominous shattering of glass. The boys were in the garden, kicking a football around, and she wondered which window it was this time. She mitred a corner neatly; news, especially bad news, travelled fast, someone would be along to tell her quickly enough.”
And I was suddenly inspired to brush up my bed-making skills! I hied me to The Internet and looked up the best methods for making “hospital corners” when making a bed.

Here is a good tutorial titled on How to Make a Bed Using Hospital Corners.
