Not the chocolates, obv.
We have a new bed. Have I mentioned that we have a new bed?
Well we do. It’s a bed. And it’s new.
What started out as a conversation (and indeed a decision) to replace the mattress very quickly turned into a ‘throw the bed away and get a new one’.
And then the conversation rapidly became ‘what size shall we go for?’
And then fond memories of the beds we have slept in, in several hotels, played with our heartstrings and suddenly we found that we had bought a Superking-sized bed.
Which, from a standard double, is a heck of a jump.
Actually it’s a heck of a jump up into the new bed, frankly.
We went for a firm mattress with a topper (not a hat) and as a direct result of new bed, new mattress, new topper, new bed-linen, new pillows (yes, we went all the way), but as a direct result of all these things, the quality of my sleep has dramatically improved.
Seven hours a night is common, where once three or four hours was the norm.
Eight hours is regularly achieved.
And this weekend I noticed up my first nine hour doze. If a doze can actually be nine hours of Zzzzzzzzzzzz.
Which I think it can.
BTW, did I mention that we’ve got a new bed?
