No, that’s not a typo. I’m also not proud of myself but all I have for comfort is the ability to stream Taskmaster over a shocking broadband to calm a massive anxiety attack so I’m afraid my needs are greater than anyone else’s at this moment in time.
There are times when we’ve all got to cut costs and I thought it would be an interesting experiment to see how cheaply I could stay in London for a few days to attend a course. So I took to one of those price comparison sites and found “a bargain”. One of the reviews mentioned bed bugs. Others said it was overpriced. Another said it “smelled like milk”. Despite those, I booked and just got on with it, undeterred. It was cheap.
Now I’m not a snob when it comes to staying anywhere. So long as it is clean and it isn’t like the jungle floor in Belize, I’m usually happy. Opening the door, I was greeted with all mod cons - fridge, washer/dryer, microwave, oven, hob, kitchenette, digital tv, bed, loo, shower, HUGE wardrobe and a vaguely overwhelming fusty smell that stung the nostrils ever so slightly. Truly a bargain.
