What about if you go away and there is a duvet?
Oh I do cope with it no problem, you know, no problem, but I just prefer. I am a bit like the late Winston Churchill I confess I do have magazines, paper work, all sorts on my bed because it is a double bed.
So you spread all that around while you are working?
So they are all spread around on my bed. So it is not tidy.
So you go to sleep with that lot on you?
Yes. I sleep on one side and on the other side I have got papers and the magazines and the book and various bits and bobs. And then the thing is ready to do in the morning when I wake up.
Ah. And they don’t fall off?
In fact it is my office. A bedroom office. The do fall off sometimes and you wake in the night like crash something has fallen off.
So you sleep on that same side?
Yes. I was reading Joan Bakewell sleeps in the middle of her double bed.
And you sleep on one side?
I sleep on one side because I have always slept on that side you know, in the marital bed and wherever I sleep I sleep on a particular side.
Okay that is interesting. You have got all sorts of fun going on there.
A bit eccentric to say the least.
And any special pillows do you have?
Yes. I am quite keen on my pillows yes. I did buy some really nice pillows about six months ago and so I do change those because of this dust mite problem. So I have two pillows, really good pillows and I was reading this article that pillows are important too aren’t they.
Yes, yes, they are. Do you take them away with you if you go away?
No I don’t. Well I suppose I have done occasionally yes, yes. But I am not that neurotic. I think Prince Charles does.
