Time for another Weekly Roundup! I had to buy new bedlinens this week. I had a set of bamboo sheets on the bed. I remember being very excited about switching to bamboo as it is touted as being a sound environmental alternative to cotton. Sadly, it just was not durable. The stitching unraveled on the pillowcases and a threadbare spot the length of my legs appeared. It was almost as if the fabric was dissolving. I loved how silky soft it was but its inability to stand up to ordinary usage was disappointing. So it is back to good old Wamsutta, a label that I know and trust. It was a little startling to go back to cotton as the new sheets are quite crisp to the touch, especially when you have been sleeping on bamboo sheets for a while. Do you have bamboo sheets and what has been your experience?
Today is Father's Day! Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there. Monsieur got a box of Purdys Chocolates, his absolute favourite. It amuses me greatly that it has "Dad's Stash" printed on the lid. To be honest, I was greatly tempted to sneak a taste as I love the Hedgehogs and the Peanut Butter bars. Monsieur actually accused me of helping myself (notice the gap at the top right hand corner) but I promise that is exactly how the box was packaged!
