We’ve recently been struck down by the worst cold (ever!) and it despite the moments of cabin fever between the other moments of actual fever, and wiping snotty noses, it got me thinking about home comforts.
For example, we’d been off our food other than comfort food like Marmite on hot buttered (actually Vitalite) toast.
Tonight, as we are all starting to get our appetite back, I made corned beef hash which I haven’t made for years. It tasted so comforting and homely and warm, just what you need after being poorly.
This happened to coincide with Leesa mattresses getting in touch to see if we fancied trying them out. I leapt at the chance to try one. We decided that it would actually be great for eldest’s bed as we already have a foam based mattress for ours.
She always says how cosy our bed is, so I thought she would love the Leesa mattress for her own bed. Readers: she couldn’t wait to get into it and go to sleep! Yes she had been rather ill, and is still not 100%, but having a cloud like bed with fresh bed linen is the ultimate in home comforts don’t you think??
So my top three home comforts are;
- Mug of Tea with Marmite on toast
- A comfy bed
- Corned beef hash ( or similar one pot hearty meal)
The Leesa is incredibly easy to order and try out. The ordering process on their website took literally 5 minutes, probably one of the easiest and fastest checkout experiences I’ve ever come across.
The mattress is manufactured within 3-5 working days, plus 1-2 working days for shipping, which is free … And get this, if you don’t like it they will come and collect it and refund you and take the mattress to charity! The mattresses are manufactured in Derbyshire and the UK office is in Manchester, right opposite our old city centre apartment.
Leesa also have a scheme where for every ten mattresses sold they’ll donate one to charity, and they’ve just made a donation of 62 mattresses to the Mustard Tree in Manchester (a homeless charity). I’m seriously impressed by this company.
The mattress arrived at my neighbour’s house (we were out) in a comparatively small box. The trick is, as it’s foam based not coil, that it can be rolled up. This makes it much easier to transport, and get up your staircase. I made a little hyperlapse video so you can get a feel of how big the box is and the whole unboxing process.
Now, I wonder if I’ll ever be able to get eldest out of bed again…
