Don't mess with my bed! (posted by Ann)
I am in London, my next-to-last stop on this business trip. Every single bed I've had on this trip, whether at a hotel or at my friend's house, has come equipped with a duvet instead of a sheet and a blanket. Let me just go on record saying that I hate duvet covers. The only way they work is if the room is really cold. Really cold. Otherwise I wake up hot, and then having no cover is too cold, but the duvet cover is too hot . . . not good for a restful night's sleep!
So, last night when I arrived in London at the hotel, I checked and of course it was the dreaded duvet cover. I called housekeeping and asked for a sheet and a blanket. They acted as though I had lost my mind, but they arrived with the sheet and blanket, I remade the bed, and I slept well. I left this morning to go to work and when I returned this evening and went to get in bed I realized I have no sheet. No blanket. I'm back to the duvet.
Why? If I wanted it last night, wouldn't it stand to reason I would want it tonight too?
So now I'm waiting for the sheet and blanket. Again. Sigh.
