One of the best things in life is climbing into a seriously comfortable bed at the end of the day. I don’t care how un rock & roll that makes me, my bed has always been my favourite place, and I get very annoyed when I have to leave it, like to take small people to school, work, whatever. When you’re a parent, getting a good nights sleep is like gold dust & is vital in making sure you’re not a grumpy arse the next day!
Now that I work from home, I could, in theory, work from bed if I really wanted to (and I often, really do, want to). On the very odd occasion someone else can do the school run, you will find me in my bed, large coffee and MacBook, working away. Literally living the dream.
So when the gorgeous people at Christy Home sent us some new bedding you can imagine how much of a happy dance I did!
We had, what we thought, was a lovely, fluffy duvet for a couple of years. We were so very, very wrong! Our new, 10.5 tog Superior Touch Duvet is like sleeping under a huge, white, fluffy cloud. It’s better than any hotel bedding we’ve slept in, and we’ve slept in quite a lot.
They teamed this with a 100% cotton duvet set in the Penny range. It’s made with 300 thread count (it’s like a mark of maturity, the more mature you get, higher the thread count you go, we are like, totally 300 and above) and has a a gorgeous lace like trim round the edge. The husband wasn’t overly keen on the girlie look this gave the bed, but he forgave it pretty quickly when he climbed into bed!
To top it all off, (or rather, bottom it?) a dusty pink fitted sheet. I am not in the least bit girlie, but my god, dusty pink bedding is my favourite thing ever. I am such a blogging cliche, bit of grey, bit of pink, bit of white! It’s a good job the bloke loves me enough to let me do my thing on the interiors front!
Christy have really, really helped make our bed even more luxurious and comfortable. You know it’s a good bed when you climb in and both go “ahhhhhh” at the same time. Even the kids (who still manage to sneak into the bedroom, despite our best efforts) want to wrap themselves up in the duvet, despite the recent heat, because it is just so flipping dreamy.
I’m not sure it’s helped in my quest to get up earlier and get more done before anyone else gets up, so far I’ve managed to have a coffee before the chaos starts, but baby steps and all that!
I have always loved Christy Towels, now their bedding range is my new BFF. Happy dreaming!
