Tomorrow looks set to be an exciting day in Château de Kitson. We will be taking delivery of a brand new mattress.

Our current mattress is six years old, and has served us well for over 2,000 nights sleep. It has started to become uncomfortable and needs replacing.

Normally a new mattress would be the most boring things you could ever purchase – second only to toilet roll – and something even I couldn’t spin a blog post from. However, this is no normal mattress. This one shares its name with a Walt Disney character. No, it’s not King Louie or Jiminy Cricket.

My thinking was, why replace a plain and boring mattress with another plain and boring mattress? It would feel like throwing money away.

I was therefore able to convince Claire that it would be a good idea to spend a bit more money on a mattress, which is nice to sleep on.

Instead of chucking our money down the drain, we would be giving it, plus a bit more, to a craftsman capable of making us a nice mattress…

You must have seen the TV advert…

A thing of beauty, isn’t it!

Clearly it costs a bit more than your regular mattress, which is advertised by a hippopotamus and a duck, but just look at its name – ‘Simba’!

I’ve seen enough nature documentaries to known that lion cubs sleep very well…

Hippos and ducks, on the other hand, wallow in rivers and muddy swamps. If I wanted a nights kip to that standard, I’d book into a Holiday Inn – based upon personal experience, for any lawyers reading.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
