Re: So Old That All My Favorites are Disappearing

It’s how we eventually, sometimes begrudgingly, accept the changes and then forget how we used to do things.
For ages, l wouldn’t change to having a duvet. I liked tuck-in sheets, blankets and eiderdown. For ages, l wouldn’t change to teabags as l preferred tea leaves.
Eventually, you start to feel like a dinosaur, give in and follow the masses..... mainly because some of the things you liked become obsolete.
It makes me wonder if we are all programmable robots?

Re: So Old That All My Favorites are Disappearing

I'm still a top sheet, bottom sheet person and the duvet-without-a-top-sheet is still unusual here. January is the month of linen sales here so come on over and I'll take you shopping Art!

Most definitely we are creatures of self-programmed habits! I think that my missing chai is as much about having to change my routine as it is missing the flavors.

I hated blankets & sheets on the bed. Duvet sets & fitted sheets are a brilliant invention.

Re: So Old That All My Favorites are Disappearing

I'm also a top sheet, bottom sheet person and have found stores now stock more fitted sheets than top sheets so it's difficult to find what I'm looking for ..... what happened to the buying sheets together in pairs era?

I find I am always having to take an extra top sheet on holidays now as they never supply those.

Re: So Old That All My Favorites are Disappearing

Most of our sheets are sold in sets, Mags, with many stores no long carrying the individual sheets.

Book your airline tickets with Artangel and we'll add lunch to all that shopping.

That means you’ll have the window seat for approx 8 hours, Art ....... and I don’t want to sit at the back by the loos!
