When I woke up with a mild ache in my back I was surprised. It couldn’t be my mattress, I reasoned. That’s new. Then it happened again. I examined my matress and found a faint hollow. I was shocked: my new mattress. then I tried to remember when I bought it, and realised it isn’t new at all. I looked up how often you should expect to replace a mattress. It seems my mattress, my new mattress, is well by its sell-by date.
I shall have to start researching to get a new one. Hopefully I can replace it with the same kind, one from Norris beds. If I am lucky, they may even still have my details. In the meantime, I shall be careful where I lie. It is still a million times more comfortable than this spot Cat chose to sleep in once.
Actually he looks fairly comfortable there. Nice and snug. One of the other pictures shows the plants sitting below the window, so I imagine I must have taken them out to clean.
When he wanted to stretch it was more problematic.
But he slept on.
I don’t know when it was. A good long time ago. There have been shelves under the windows for more than ten years.
