Whats Hot and Whats Not - This Is Not - My New Bed Linen

Postby BlowingOldBoots » Fri Feb 22, 2013 9:15 pm

This is my new bed linen provided by my employer in the staff villa. Ironically its by fashion retailer NafNaf. I had a look in the domestic cupboard and whole range appears to be there. Housekeeping used to be a non event in my working life, now I dread what I'll find on the only refuge I really have over here.

I am bored, abroad and have nothing boaty to talk about. I promise to add some varnishing pictures next month.

I suspect you'll eventually get to sleep with the light out. Pretty hideous though.

Why did they give you a double?

Are there some perks to this job you've failed to inform us of??

Damned sight better than those cardboard huts they put us in at Sullom Voe in the 70's

It's a small world right enough - although thinking further there were many thousands employed there over the course of the project so perhaps not so very small after all.

It wasn't the size, or lack of it, that sticks in the memory. It was the way the whole block was jumping up and down in the wind -all night long. As for those poor guys who had to traipse across the submerged gangplanks to the "hotel ships" - poor them - almost as bad as the Cumbrae Scuttlebutt pontoon in a good South Easterly.

Turn it upside down, and you'll be fine.

Is upside down the right expression? I don't mean top to bottom. I don't mean inside, out.

I mean - turn it so that the patterned side is hidden, and the plain side is visible on the top.

Not sure how you will get on trying to explain that to the maid.

Ash.... :roll:

Suggestion 1) Your employer is hinting something to you about your future with the company.

Suggestion 2) Have you considered Dylon?

Suggestion 3) Cuttingup the pieces & making a patchwork quilt so that it's back to as it was.


I'm just wondering which casino those bedside lights were stolen from.

On a boaty theme I have just laundered some ropes from Chiron.

Just put the sheet over the duvet rather than the other way around.

BTW they all look the same with the light out & your eyes closed.
