If I look past the boot packed to the max with bags, toys, portable cots, mini couches for the kids to sleep on, the approximately 1 million are we there yet?’s, and the cheese that’s ground into the car seats because I gave the kids sandwiches to combat those are we there yet?’s and/or screaming for 5 minutes, going on holidays is quite fun.
Especially at night time. With the kids in bed, we can kick back, enjoy a cup of tea that we can actually hold in our hands without a curious and mad for food toddler standing precariously on his tippy-toes, relentlessly pawing at our cups whilst we attempt to keep the hot beverage free of grasping hands so they don’t get scalded.
We can get into bed at 7:30pm. Aaron and I really like going to this 5 star hotel in Sydney when we are feeling particularly un-thrifty and want a little luxury that our slightly dodgy apartment with 30 year old brown shag carpet and tiles falling off the walls in the bathroom can’t possibly give us.
At this particular hotel, there is a menu next to the bed. A pillow menu. Yes, there is such a thing. You can actually call the concierge and order the particular pillow size/firmness/filling (feather, cotton, latex) that you’d like, and they will deliver it to your room at no extra charge.
Each pillow is encased by those lovely crisp white pillow cases that match the lovely crisp white sheets that only hotels seem to be able to get their grubby mitts on.
Unless you’re staying in the places we usually stay. You won’t find the nice sheets there.
Getting into bed at a 5 star hotel is nothing short of fabulous. After I pull the sheets out from their tucked position at the side of the bed (I hate having my sheets tucked), I can wrap myself in the crisp white sheets, sink into the soft pillows, and cuddle up to Aaron, not having to worry about dishes, laundry, or cleaning. Whilst we are in that hotel bed, life is easy.
How good would it be to have hotel sheets at home? Only new ones, not sheets from actual hotels, because we all know what goes on in hotel beds.
You can get your very own crisp, yet silky feeling white sheets from Frette’s hotel collection bedding. Frette’s actually do supply world famous hotels with their linen. It’d be like a holiday every night. And who doesn’t like that, right?
