I have no clothes pegs and I swear I'm middle class. I sneer at chavs and the only reason I go to Lidl is for cheap gin, so I must be.


If you drink Lidl gin you *are* a chav...


(the original Hortus gin was OKish but they've gone a bit downhill since that).

I upgraded to a new mattress.
It is (much) thicker than the old mattress so some of my sheets no longer tuck in (tuck in! I hear you cry.  Well yes, flat sheets can be sides-to-middled when the middle wears out, thus getting more wear/less waste)
It is alas also a lot heavier than my old mattress so no idea how I will turn it when required.  Presumably with much difficulty as opposed to merely some difficulty.
In the dark, all views are the same.

Pub's kitchen was closed, had a couple of pints then went to Greggs, Greggs was closed, had to go to M&S - at this rate I'll have to get extra from Waitrose. What is the world coming to?

Flat sheets are getting smaller. How can a 150 cm-wide sheet be a "single": 90 cm for the bed+2x25 cm for the sides leaves 10 cm to tuck in to accommodate me. Need to buy a double now.
I like a flat sheet on top*, then I can have multiple layers for adjustment without any of them touching me.

* After the disastrous mistake of using a fitted sheet on top!

We’ve given up trying to accommodate both of us in bed with respect to duvet tog value and extra blankets. I am currently sleeping on top of the duvet Dr Beardy (Mrs) is sleeping under and I have a single fleece blanket if i get a bit cool in the night. My night sweats have all but disappeared since we took this approach.

 You should do as the Germans do - they always have 2 single duvets on a double bed.

My GerMan has a super-light tog duvet upon which he sleeps, I sleep under a thick and heavy one. Works well!

Ocado cannot deliver frozen foods due to national CO2 shortage!!  How will I survive without my Nuii ice creams?

Riding a bike through a city is like navigating the collective neural pathways of a vast global mind.
