A) Duvet B) blanket and sheet, with additional blankets as needed?
When I was younger, my mum used to use blankets and sheets, in the winter more, in the summer less. She would tuck them in at the sides, and fold the (usually) white sheet over the blankets.
Then we got duvets, end of the previous way. However, I have always prefered my duvet tucked in at the sides and the end.
DH gets hot, I can't sleep with just a sheet. We had bought a posh coverlet to match our duvet cover, not for any purpose you understand other than to looknice.
The last couple of weeks have been muggy and I grudgingly agreed to using the coverlet and an egyptian cotton sheet.
And I really like it. I makes much more sense than a hot stuffy heavy duvet we have central heating so why bother with togs? And it reminded me of being young, and how I liked it, and this a grown up version, not a bed with crocheted or itchy blankets, but a posh version of the same.
And it reminded me of being in USA, with MIL, and then seperately with the two different BILs, they all have coverlet and sheet, more blankets if needed.
And I wondered why we did not do this sooner. We are thinking of getting rid of our duvet now.
