The Burning Question*: Are extra cushions on the bed pretty – or pointless?

Let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on you plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: We’ve debated the importance of a made bed before. But just how made does it have to be? Does the tower of cushions of varying sizes and patterns really need to be there?

“Yes, it’s pretty,” say some, as they carefully place each tier lovingly down the side of the bed before sleep. (Obviously, the good cushions are not for your drooling head).

“No, they are pointless and annoying,” says the other, ripping the cushions from the mattress and flinging them on the floor.

Who do you agree with? Are extra cushions on the bed pretty – or pointless?
