My favourite night spot (or the reality of getting old)....

I am just a little bit excited today! I am taking delivery of a brand new mattress!! We are taking advantage of the money being thrown at us by the government and blowing it on a super-duper, body support, pillow top, hyper-stressed wool (true!!), thermal-something-or-other mattress with a 15 year guarantee. This mattress also cooks tea, vacuums, and says "my, haven't you lost a lot of weight" every morning and then brings you a cup of tea!! I cannot wait!!!!
The mattress we currently own has seen me through two pregnancies and has more dips and bumps in it than the Bungle Bungles. Although it has been faithful, it has not been very supportive and quite frankly, I am looking forward to ending our nine and a half year relationship. So from now on, instead of wrestling with the mattress half the night and waking up looking like the wreck of the Hesperus, there will be a radiant glow surrounding me as I rise like a fragrant mist every morning, angels will be serenely humming and Bambi will be out on the back lawn. Aaaaaaaah!
