Daily Prompt: Luxurious


If I absolutely HAVE to name the one luxurious thing I can’t live without, it would have to be 400 thread-count white bed linen! This my very best thing, hands down.Better than jewels or a good cup of coffee in the morning. I find that since I threw out my old polyester sheets and bought new Egyptian cotton bed sheets and pillow cases, sleep is so much deeper, warmer, more relaxed. And that is almost Byzantine luxury in this stressful world.

I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!

  1. What a lovely thing to be attached to and how refreshing too!
    Luxurious indeed!

    • Thank you! They are some of the few ‘new’ things I have bought in recent years. It love old and second-hand things, but these are the best purchase I have made as pure indulgence. My old bones rejoice!
