We don't do duvets

We went and bought a duvet today, and pillows and a bed sheet. We spent a lot of money on it. We're not frugal people, nor are we ostentatious, we buy good quality, but not very often.

The justification for spending the money was thus; we're not married so we've never had the opportunity to ask our friends and relatives to fork out £95 on pure Egyptian cotton sheets. We also have Millie; which means we get less sleep, so it might as well be the best sleep we can afford.

The duvet we were going to buy wasn't in stock; so we bought an even more expensive one. After a bit of hand-wringing we justified the expense as a long term investment.

"I can't even remember the last time we bought a duvet" said I.
"We never have" replied Emma "You don't want to know where ours came from"

It turns out that the duvet we use came from Emma's Grandma when she passed away many years ago. I swear, I'm sure I can now see a face in the mysterious brown stain that's been on it for years.
