    having cartoon duvet covers? I was happily making my bed last night and reached for the Paddington duvet cover (it's very soft you know). If it's not Paddington it would have been Pooh, Postman Pat or some similar childhood favourite.

    Is it still acceptable bahaviour or should I go for the plain ones now?

    Yes it is in my opinion. I'm proud to have an A Team duvet cover. Have used it since I can remember.

    I'm thinking of changing mine to a more traditional style...you can hardly read the Barbie name now it's got that faded.

    One grey hair and she is already having a mid life crisis and clinging to her youth! mwahahaha

    Paddington duvet cover is the cream of the crop in the twigge household, it is so worn it feels like silk... fight you for it when i get home next week.

    Oh dear. Definitely time to grow up, Caroline.

    *throws his head up in disdain and in doing so sees his booksehelf with South Park, Spiderman Superman, The Mighty Avengers and Hulk action figures standing proud, where they've been for years. And the only reason there is no evidence of Thomas the Tank Engine models is 'cos there ain't no room!*

    Ahem......

    If anything helps you sleep, Caroline, keep it!

    At four o'clock ;)

    EVERYTHING STOPS FOR TEA
    Featured in Buchanan's 1935 comedy film, "Come Out Of The Pantry"
    (Goodhart / Hoffman / Sigler)
    Jack Buchanan


    Every nation in creation has its favourite drink
    France is famous for its wine, it's beer in Germany
    Turkey has its coffee and they serve it blacker than ink
    Russians go for vodka and England loves its tea

    Oh, the factories may be roaring
    With a boom-a-lacka, zoom-a-lacka, wee
    But there isn't any roar when the clock strikes four
    Everything stops
    for tea

    Oh, a lawyer in the courtroom
    In the middle of an alimony plea
    Has to stop and help 'em pour when the clock strikes four
    Everything stops
    for tea

    It's a very good English custom
    Though the weather be cold or hot
    When you need a little pick-up, you'll find a little tea cup
    Will always hit the spot

    You remember Cleopatra
    Had a date to meet Mark Anthony at three
    When he came an hour late she said "You'll have to wait"
    For everything stops for tea

    Oh, they may be playing football
    And the crowd is yelling "Kill the referee!"
    But no matter what the score, when the clock strikes four
    Everything stops
    for tea

    Oh, the golfer may be golfing
    And is just about to make a hole-in-three
    But it always gets them sore when the clock yells "four!"
    Everything stops
    for tea

    It's a very good English custom
    And a stimulant for the brain
    When you feel a little weary, a cup'll make you cheery
    And it's cheaper than champagne

    Now I know just why Franz Schubert
    Didn't finish his unfinished symphony
    He might have written more but the clock struck four
    And everything stops
    for tea
