    Hm, I'm so unsure of my English these days. And I know I keep on using mixed (or even down-right incorrect) metaphors.

    Can't think of anything at the moment. But I notice I am translating into English. For example that first sentence first came into my head as "Nix fällt mir gerade ein."

    Yes they do.

    Pillows can always be bought cheaply in town anyway. I bought some at one point for around £5 each.

    Yeh that's what I was thinking. I wouldn't like to use someone else's duvet though.. it's kinda scary not knowing when it was last washed.

    I'm bringing my own..

    The bedding will all be clean, as they will have been renting out the rooms for conferences and Bed and Breakfast customers. The general public would complain very loudly if the rooms were not up to standard.

    I am trying to pack stuff away into the loft, which I will take to Durham but don't need until then. My problem so far is trying to work out what I won't need in the next 6 weeks.
