When it’s summer and you still have the winter duvet on

I have a 13.5 Tog duvet on my bed. It’s June. Maybe I should change it.

At least there are some tasty Greenfly to quench your thirst when it gets too much, each one like a refreshing little green drop.It’s a shame when some escape your clutches and decide to walk all over your bill though:

I really must change that duvet when I get home. And buy some serviettes.
