We have replaced our doona (duvet/quilt) with blankets because it was too warm. Sleeping in a too-toasty bed isn't conducive to good sleep and can have negative health impacts. The temperature is just about right now with one wool and one cotton blanket, but it's too soon to say it's making a difference (particularly if I'm less fatigued). The blankets aren't as snuggly as a doona, but they do stay well tucked in compared to a doona with a top sheet, and I like that. It feels secure and comforting. When I asked Luke if he was tucked in too tightly, he said no, he likes that feeling. I think another bonus will be less huffiness with each other over doona-hogging.
The Oxford Dictionaries word of the day is 'middlescent' - middle-aged but still maintaining youthful interests and activities. That's me! I usually describe myself as a 'kidult' or 'adultescent', but middlescent seems more fitting these days.
Have I told you about the The Emotionary - a site with made up words for real feelings? Some are quite clever. I like 'feignderstand' - to pretend you have finally heard what someone said after asking them to repeat themselves more than three times.
