Hello, hope you had a great Valentines Day!
I had last weekend off and have been doing all sorts. Decorating, clearing out and a general spring clean… fairly dull but much needed!
So, I was having a good tidy up and whilst doing so popped Rosy's (one of our adorable hamsters) home carefully on our bed.
Little did I know that our duvet cover was ruffled up against the bars of Rosy's cage (I say cage; it's more like a hamster mansion, 4 stories with all the toys!). Well, you can see the result! The cover was well within her reach and well and truly shredded. I'll be honest, I found it really funny and my first concern was Rosy and that the duvet hadn't done her any harm.
And then reality kicked in, I realised it was our super-luxurious Kelly Hoppen high thread-count duvet set – oops, sorry Kelly! I will draw on my experience of being an ex-upholsterer to conjure up some form of designer patch!
I suppose from a hamster's point of view, if you're going to shred some bed linen why not make it some of the finest and do it in style! I'll pop a patch on it and turn the linen over.
There's a saying – you wait for hours for a bus to turn up then three arrive all at once. Well, I've been waiting patiently to present another hour with Simon Wilson – at least a year! I look at my schedule and I'm down to present three shows with Simon this weekend!
Take care and see you soon,
