BEFORE YOU START: Please note that although I currently volunteer for both the Stroke Association and Age UK, the views expressed in this blog are strictly my own. I am not a spokesperson for either (or, indeed, for any) organisation. I am based in the UK and the blog therefore has a UK bias - I've tried to use the Glossary to explain any terms which might be ambiguous, but if you think there is anything I've missed, please message me. Lastly, you'll find typos here, although I do my best to correct them. There are reasons for this, which you'll discover as you read.

I washed my bedding this morning. It has just taken me the last hour to get it back on the bed, and even now it isn't right. The duvet isn't in the cover properly and judging by the seams the base sheet is at right angles to what it should be. But I'm knackered now so it'll have to do for tonight, I might have another look tomorrow.

It's funny because there are so many times in the process when you just want to get a pair of scissors and shred it all. Last time I did this, I did use a pair of scissors but only succeeded in destroying a leather belt.

If you ever want to know what a stroke is like, try putting bedding on a bed one-handed. A single bed will do.
