We had been complaining about our old mattress for over a year. It had become lumpy, bumpy, saggy, even spiky in places. It needed to go, but we just never found the time to get out, look at what was out there and actually buy one.
But last Saturday it happened. Maybe it was to reward ourselves after my Graduation, but while in town we ambled into a shop and literally bought the first one we saw. It was just sitting there, waiting for us.
I like a bed to be nice and squishy, so I can snuggle down in it.
Mrs RC likes it to be nice and firm, even hard. For her the best bed we ever had was a thin mattress put straight on the floor.
This one manages to be perfect for us both - squishy on top with very firm springs underneath.
And it was a great price too!
We looked, prodded, etc.
Then we looked half heartedly at the rest, before going back to the first one and buying it.
We like to think we are good customers. We see what we want and we buy it, no faffing, no trying for a deal, etc. Times are hard for shops right now, they don't need their profits pinched even further, especially small locally owned shops like this one.
It arrived yesterday while I was at work, so after getting out of my wet cycling gear, I flopped on the bed. Ooooh Yeah! That is a great mattress.
I called down to Mrs RC, asking if I could have dinner in bed, but she refused, but I did end up in bed earlier than usual, relishing the wonderful snugness while reading Herodotus....
