I think it's time to get back on the Slimming World programme.

During the night, I realised that my bed frame has broken.  Also, my office chair won't stay at the height I want it and it's embarrassing because it makes farty noises whenever it goes down a bit.  And the button pinged off my trousers this morning.

Yes, I definitely need to get back on the diet...

Anyway, the fact that my bed is broken obviously means that I need a new one.  I can get one from Tesco Direct and get double Clubcard points, but I don't know where to start.  You know those memory foam mattresses?  Are they hard, or soft?  And are they worth the extra money?  Any other recommendations at all?  Anyone?  Bueller?

I was once told that my mattress was the closest thing to an orthopaedic/memory foam mattress without actually being one that the person had ever slept on, so I'm guessing that the memory foam would be really comfortable, given that my mattress is really cosy and squishy and like sleeping on clouds :)

Ah, see I was worried that it would be rock hard - I much prefer a soft mattress!

Me too! I have to make sure it's not *too* soft because of my lower back (and my back is telling me that I should get a new mattress soon) but I do like to sink into the mattress to a degree because then the entire bed feels like a lovely warm, soft nest :)

That's just the best feeling, isn't it!

Having tested out a memory foam mattress (and in fact I have memory foam in my slippers), I find them ridiculously comfortable. I wish I had one! Because they form around the shape of your body they're more supportive of your head and neck, which are sort of forced out of place by stiffer, ordinary mattresses and pillows.

That sounds really good - I'm thinking it may well be worth the extra cash then!
