Beds, They are great you know

I love my bed !! In fact I sometimes believe that I possibly lust after my bed. I know this may sound odd or possibly strange but it is true!! I get into work and all I can think about is my bed, I get in the car and all I can think about is how nice it would be to be in my bed. For gods sakes I sit on the couch and think damn I want to be in my bed ( at 5 in the afternoon !! )

So I started to think am I the only one like this and realized that I am not alone that others are like me. That others have their beds on their brains for at least half the day if not more. You think about it a bed is a lust and life long commitment all in one. I mean we dress it in pretty cloths and some people insist on adorning it with those stupid fluffy animals as though they think it makes it look sweet ( it does not can I say it makes it look like a psycho sleeps there men see this and run remember this girls THEY RUN AT THE SIGHT OF STUFFED ANIMALS ON BEDS !!!! ) We spend made amounts of money on our beds like we would with someone we love and cherish. So yes I also and inclined to believe some treat a bed as one of the family.

I have also come to understand that my cat ( cleo ) is in love or lusting after the bed as well. I know for a fact tha the sleeps on that bed all day and does not move what so ever. I know this due to the cemented in cat sized dent on the duvet and the extrodinarly warm patch he has been slumbering on for the last 8 hours non stop. It is funny when I get home he reminds me of myself when I was a kid. When we cam home from school we wre meant to do our chores then our homework and then look after the animals but instead we vegged in front of the TV! Like any normal kid of course! Anyway we would hear that front door open or that car pull into the drive and we would do the mad dash to hide the fact that in fact we were not following the rules and we were being bad kids ! Well the cat does this mad dash from the door as if to say 'nope I was not on the bed all day in fact I was bouncing about killing all bugs in sight mum' but sometimes he is in such a deep sleep on his bed that he only manages to lift his head of said duvet look at me as if to say ' come on I am a cat what the hell do you bloody expect of me ?!?!?!'
So yes the cat also I believe has bed lust as well.

There is nothing better then crawling into bed in the middle of winter with a hot water bottle a good book and clean sheets. I have to say that I would almost call it a hobby. I prepare myself for these nights like you would stretch for the gym. I have a meal that is what you would call a comfort meal like soup or roast chicken. Then I have a bath with my book ( yeah ok and a fag as well ! ) make a cup of tea get in fresh jammies and presto I am ready for the big event!! Getting into my bed hmmmmm
So yes as stated beds are great ! As stated yes I love and lust my bed !
hmmmm bed .............

I never realised how important a good bed was until I got a bad back�.
Over 1,400 members of BackCare, the national organisation for healthy backs, responded to our Back Your Bed survey - the first of its kind to explore the views on beds of those who suffer from bad backs and the experts who treat them.
Buying a good bed is one of the most important purchases you can make when it comes to back pain relief. Nine out of 10 say their bed is more important to them since they developed back pain; 98% agreed that a good, supportive bed could help a bad back. 82% of experts felt that the right bed could help prevent back pain.
"If you cannot rest properly and sleep well, this hinders recovery from back problems."
A firm, supportive bed, not a hard one, can do wonders to ease and even prevent bad backs. Only 22% of sufferers had bought a bed classed as �orthopaedic�; while 28% describe their bed support as �medium�. Only 6% of experts would recommend an orthopaedic bed to patients.

Three quarters would be prepared to spend more than �500 on a new bed: compared with just 36% of the �normal� population. Nearly one in 10 would pay more than �2,000 for a new bed to get the comfort and relief they need.
Back pain sufferers are twice as likely as the rest of the population to own a new bed - 50% have beds that are less than five years old compared to the national average of 24%.
88% are satisfied with their choice � but 16% said they would get a better quality one next time; while 9% would opt for something firmer; 5% said they would choose a softer bed and 4% wanted a bigger one.

Sufferers are three times more likely to replace their beds when they no longer feel comfortable (65% compared with just 20%).
31% own a king size bed compared with 11% generally. Separate mattresses zipped together are also popular with couples whose support needs differ or who are easily disturbed by their partner's movements. top
So worth considering when buying a

Choosing the right Bed: Bedcare
Proper care will keep your bed in good condition. Always read and retain manufacturers care instructions and ask your retailer for advice, too. Otherwise, the following tips will help you to get the best out of your bed during its natural life.
Use a washable, protective cover to protect the mattress (and pillows) from stains. Barrier fabrics for allergy sufferers are also available.
In the mornings, throw back the bed clothes and leave the bed to air for 20 minutes to allow body moisture to evaporate.
Turning your mattress over from side and side and end to end every few months (every week for the first three months) helps upholstery fillings to settle down more evenly. Some more luxurious mattresses, with much thicker layers of fillings designed to mould themselves to the contours of your body, may retain signs of these impressions, despite turning.
Don�t make a habit of sitting on the edge of the bed and don�t let the kids bounce on it.
Don�t roll up or squash a mattress to store or transport it - this can cause permanent damage.
Handles are designed to help you position a mattress on its base - do not use them to support the full weight of the mattress - they may pull out and damage the fabric.
Don�t leave polythene wrappings on a new mattress - dampness, mildew and rotting could all result from a build-up of condensation.
Vacuum your mattress and base from time to time to remove fluff and dust. This should be carefully done so as not to dislodge fillings or damage tufts. Open windows while vacuuming -especially if there is an asthma sufferer in the house.
When tackling stains, use mild detergent and warm or cold water. Never over soak a mattress or base.
Putting a new mattress on a base for which it was not intended, a new mattress on an old base or a board between the mattress and base can impede comfort and reduce the useful life of the mattress - as well as affecting any guarantees or warranties.
Out with the Old: Once you�ve bough yourself a new bed, make arrangements to have the old one disposed of (many retailers will do this for you). Don�t give it to the children, relatives, guests or neighbours. If it wasn�t good enough for you, it�s not good enough for anyone else, either. In fact, it�s a veritable health hazard - get rid of it
Definately something to think about if you plan to buy a
