Home Sweet Home and the Bed Snob!

Home sweet home and Happy New Year everyone!

I know I am a little late with that message but I am just back from holiday and haven’t been near a computer for some time!

What I want to talk about today is how a simple thing like your comfortable bed can spoil you for life and that you don’t appreciate it until you leave and stay in a hotel, motel, caravan, tent, someone else’s home, holiday home….the list goes on.

Hotel bedroom - not home sweet home but ok for a short time
This looks like an inviting hotel room – for a day or two – it’s not home sweet home!

I haven’t slept properly for weeks…..so please excuse the spelling mistakes and bad grammar! It’s incredible what a lack of sleep does to your body.

Home sweet home – I love my own bed

home sweet home
Here’s a home sweet home!

The reason I haven’t slept is because I have been away from home, visiting people around the country and site seeing the beautiful New Zealand. There is the obvious reason I haven’t slept, a foreign bed. I felt a bit like Goldilocks, this one is too hard, this one is too soft, but unfortunately the remaining was not just right, like the story says, it was too bouncy. Anyway, I would wake up stiff every morning, and tired, then there is the bathrooms, showers, toilets etc, especially when we shared ablutions at a camping ground. It is amazing how different from home these places can be, but I won’t go there as you would probably stop reading at what I would describe.

I’m a Bed Snob

I am starting to feel like a bed snob, if there is such a thing. I came back from holiday and crawled into my own bed – home sweet home – exhausted, and slept like Goldilocks. Lovely crisp cotton sheets, soft down pillows and duvet (comforter), wool mattress, slat bed. I think everyone should pay particular attention to their bed, after all we do spend so much time in them. But now I am afraid that I do suffer from bed snobbery. I just can’t be satisfied with anything else, I have ruined my holidays for the rest of my life. Perhaps if I can teach everyone else the importance of a well designed bed then it may just catch on, and I might find the odd good nights sleep when I am travelling.

You want to read more about types of sheets and types of pillows. I will be adding more ways to turn you into a bed snob too. I know you all want to experience the Goldilocks perfect bed story. Get started making your bed a wonderful place. Home sweet home.
