    Perhaps we should wire ourselves to a power source ?, we could save a fortune in electric bills !

    My mum had sheets from Brentford Nylons, awful things they were too, vile colours and too hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

    I remember my mum buying stuff at Brentford Nylons too and you can bet your bottom dollar that Julian's grandma did!

    On the electric shock front it's generally cars that give me an electric shock.

    Don't put man-made fibres anywhere near me at bedtime. When I was 12 my parents bought me a brushed nylon nightie. One morning I remember turning over and a wasp that had been trapped in the fibres during the night stung me at least 12 times on my right-hand-side. My parents ran in my bedroom when they heard me screaming and my father literally ripped the nightie off my back when he couldn't get the trapped wasp off the material.

    I don't remember much after that but luckily my mother immediately rang the Doctor who pulled up in his car literally a few minutes later and apparently nearly kicked the front door down to get in and give me an injection which probably saved my life. I had no movement on my right-hand-side for about 24 hours. After that, I obviously avoid wasps but also microfibre in bed!

    How scary!:whew2:You poor thing!
    I so hated the feel of my bri-nylon nightie that I used to walk with my arms spread out, so I didn't have to touch it! My mother said I was being 'fanciful' and that she didn't have time for my"dramatics". The minute I went to bed, I took it off - we didn't have nylon sheets, thank goodness -they were yet to come!

    Brentford Nylons was my first thought when I saw the advert! Perhaps Kim&Co bought them out. thmbs up
