Having bought a lovely new, rather extravagant goose down winter duvet (quilt, comforter or doona depending on where one happens to be) it seemed it was time to batten down the hatches and get ready for winter.
With the new 10.5 tog duvet on the bed (a UK weight which means very little to me except that there’s a 13 tog for what I can only assume must be arctic conditions), new pillowcases and a lovely new duvet cover, all was well with the world.
Except that it turns out that goose down is incredibly warm.
And I’m too hot!
It’s probably not a bad thing especially in February when things really get nasty, but for the mild November temperatures (around 7 degrees Celsius) I’m finding things are a little on the tropical side.
And this is the dilemma in my life at the moment!
