No fumbling allowed....

We've had friends from our church in Birmingham (UK) staying in our downstairs flat for the past few days. They were surprised at the size - there are five of them and there's been plenty of space. The weather has been a bit dubious with some rain, but it's still a lot warmer than England at present, up to about 18C at times, and sunny too, off and on.

Before they arrived, we did a few last-minute jobs around the flat after finishing the painting, and bought a new duvet for the double bed in the main guest room. We chose an inexpensive one that wasn't too thick - we do have some blankets as well - since the weather is generally warmer than it is now.

We should be used to typos and mis-translations into English that appear on many items here, but I was still surprised at the number of errors that crept into the packaging on the duvet. And we were particularly amused at the instructions telling people not to fumble...
