the princess and the pillows...

Current work: new Riva (resisting lure of sparky new idea – dear Muse, please give me until the day after my deadline or my editor will have something to say about this because I AM ON DEADLINE) Listening to: Mozart Reading: Sarah Morgan, Bella’s Disgrace (enjoyed this – Sarah never disappoints – and was thrilled to learn over the weekend that she’s been nominated for a Rita)

My name is Kate Hardy and I am a total princess when it comes to pillows. On Saturday, I picked up a new pillow – yep, my third since January. The Tempur one was too soft and too hot; the M&S ‘medium support’ was a total disappointment (poor finish, didn’t fit a standard pillowcase without rucking up and being uncomfortable, but didn’t have a removable cover – first time I’ve ever been let down by M&S – though they were utterly lovely about it and gave me a refund); but this one, oh joy, is the same as my beloved M&S brick, finally back in stock.

Also on the princess front, lovely Amy Andrews gave me a great film rec. An oldie, but a goodie: The Princess Bride. We all enjoyed it hugely on Saturday night (and the kids wanted to know how come I could quote things when I’d not seen the film before – um, well, it’s called not being very disciplined with the internet and chatting to your mates on the other side of the world when you should be hard at work. But I will be IMMENSELY good this week.)

Righty. Back to work. Had my five minutes’ break. Type face beckons!

I bought about four different types of new pillow to try at the start of the year. I can completely understand where you're coming from. Eventually I got use to one of them... but not without a few grumbles.

Lacey, I am so glad I'm not the only one!
