The Princess And The Pea.

Reasons to be comfy …
Most of our beds now include orthopedic mattresses.  We initially introduced these to help students suffering back pains often exacerbated by sitting for long periods at a computer desk.

…Tales of the unexpected:
On seeing his house-mate get a new mattress, one envious student suddenly feigned back-ache. Placing one hand behind his back and leaning back unconvincing onto this hand he sought to evoke sympathy to secure a new orthopedic mattress for himself.

Realising the rouse I popped the original normal mattress (just replaced by the new mattress) on top of his existing normal mattress with the offer of more to follow if required.

The next time I visited, his back had evidently healed with only one mattress on the bed!

A very amusing try – I wonder if he ever found his princess as in the Hans Christian Anderson’s novel.  “And another thing… stop putting vegetables in my bedding… it’s perverse!” (Sky Broadband Advert).

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
