    calling in life!!

    It takes some people a lifetime to realise what they were put on earth for, that special purpose, that unique reason to live, that feeling that " wow" this is it!!!!
    My realisation came fairly late in life. but I know that it took special, clever brains from either England, America Japan or China to invent the product that was destined to occupy me for the rest of my life on earth!
    I spend a good few hours per night practicing this special duty, presented to me by these clever rocket scientists, in fact I think that I spend more time resolving this than they spent inventing and manufacturing it!
    I know you are burning to find out what this is;
    Well!, I will take the risk of letting out this secret!


    F I T T E D S H E E T S !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They never stay on the mattress, they always un-bungie themselves, they always end up as a bundle on top of the mattress, they always irritate the Sh!8t out of you and you have to wake up ( not difficult!), get out of bed( VERY DIFFICULT), pull until your fingers hurt and tuck the corners back under the mattress!
    Then as soon as you climb back into bed. you hear the rubber bands ZING! ZAP!! off the corners again.
    WHY!!!!! couldn't they just use a little bit more material, or stronger elastic bands?????
    I know! it is to keep suckers like me busy while I am supposed to be sleeping ! and that keeps me all bright eyed and bushy tailed the next day !
    And my wife wonders why I "got out on the wrong side of the bed" it's because I struggled with all sides and corners of the bed ALL night.
    Can anyone suggest or help???????????

    How about a pair of braces underneath. Might even work on flat sheets.

    Certainly better than sleeping pills for restless nights.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    A couple of thoughts - we don't seem to have this problem in our guest house - so must be doing something right:-
    • Check the size of the sheets to the mattress both the top area and the base set.
    • Get better quality sheets where the rubbers work.
    • Your sheets may have shrunk in the wash (no kidding some our stuff - not the cheap stuff either -has shrunk up to 200mm all round) - a queen sheet becomes a double after an incorrect wishy washy session and then the staff try and squeeze it on - I am sure that would go zap in the night.
    • Tie them down as Dave suggests.
    • Take a sleeping tablet that keeps you still.
    • Lay off the cheese and other stuff that keeps you awake.
    • Sleep on the floor in a sleeping bag.
    • Drink More


    OK - ran out of ideas now - thats it for now!
