Are horrid. The Management and I snuggle under percale sheets with an eiderdown.

Any of you like these horrid ways of sleeping?

Tog ratings! What a lot of baloney.

If only!

We have duvets in the guest bedrooms. We shall have to occupy one in order that parents can sleep in our bed. Twins in the cots at the bottom.

This means the ruddy thing will drop off the bed or we shall sweat the night out.

We've some sleeping bags which are so tog top that we could doze off up Everest.

This is a serious matter. Don't trivialise it.

Flattery will get you nowhere with me.

We got pinged by an Ocado driver but miraculously the daughter got the video footage.

Two new doors and a boot repair. Ocado have admitted responsibiliy. Fingers crossed, we won't need to claim on our insurace which has a 10 year no claims bonus for us.

I've given up on Mercs, BMWs and Audis.

And <tears forming> my lovely Porsche. There's no point in having them with the ruddy congestion these days.

We might sell this and get a Range Rover Evoke. But the Qasquai is a lovely car. We've the top model with tons of bells and whistles. Plus it's an auto, which means it's useful going around London in queues.

It warns if you change lanes, tight bends imminent, speed cameras. Plus a ton of other things.

I'm not badge conscious these days.

You hate duvets so you put them in the guest bedroom. That kind of pathetic, passive aggressiveness is quite revealing.

You could just change the bedding - a man of your means must have more than one eiderdown and fancy sheets. if not use some of the left over cash from the Porsche sale to stock up.

‘Guest bedrooms’, they are in the western annex that was rebuilt after the great fire.

The Clitquai in your video hasn't got a panoramic roof, or roof rails, so it's not the top model.

Isn't an Eiderdown just a subset of Duvet anyway?

And fudge snuggling 'under percale sheets', fudge topsheets in general, stupid unnecessary things that they are.

I didn't look it up.

We were given a Clitquai as a rental in Portugal last year and it had a pano roof.

Unlike Globby's "top model" which hasn't.

Absolutely. And I'm surprised that someone who pretends to be as discerning as Globus tries to portray himself hasn't realised that goose down is superior to duck down. I guess it is the faux discernment of someone who likes labels over quality.

Keep going lads! Nothing wrong with a bit of friendly stick on here.

Anyway, just got the estimate in that runs over £3000.

We shall get it repaired then probably sell it and go for the latest top notch version.

My interest in cars has dwindled with the congestion inevitably clogging up roads.

It's automatic for us from now on.

Our last trip to Wobbledom took 5 1/2 hours thank to some pillock who decided to have an "argument" with a lorry.

Mr Plod decided to shut the motorway. In fairness the Air Ambulance came over and one can only hope there were no fatalities. We then went past the wreckage. Be hard to think anyone got out alive.

Said a little prayer. Not much use really.

Crikey, some forensic analysis going on.

We didn't buy a brand new one. The most expensive depreciation is that short distance from out of the showroom.

It's fine for our usage. I repeat, driving today is not as fun as when I started and that was <cough> years ago.

I passed my test on the very day I became old enough to drive on the roads. However, I used to drive tractors around the farm from about age 11. I had to hop off the seat to hit the pedals as my legs were not long enough.

Duvets, every time. Comfy, easy to adjust personal space, farts not so badly trapped, easier to make the bed, what's not to like?

Car, not a Cumquat fan. Would never ever go back to driving a geared-car. Would like my next car to be electric but need the range.
