We ordered a mattress on Thursday from http://www.mattressman.co.uk. They called to tell us it would be Tuesday before we’d get it. Nothing wrong with that.

It actually turned up on Monday morning, which is pretty stunning. A new mattress, free delivery to our door, from the UK, that quickly, and for a fraction of what it would cost to buy one from a store in Dublin, where we would have been charged extra for delivery.

Incidentally we went for the Simmons Memory Ortho Mattress. £199 delivered (about €225).

We shopped around a bit, if any bricks and mortar store in Dublin could have come close I’d have given them the business. Harvey Norman didn’t have the same mattress, but anything similar was €500++++

Beds etc. was a joke. They had a nasty cheap looking and feeling mattress, that felt a lot like the one we were dumping, and they were asking €249.

In case you’re in the market for a mattress, I have no problem touting the Simmons Memory Ortho Mattress (no they are not paying me anything to post this). It was comfy when I crawled into bed last night, and it was A LOT more comfy when I woke up this morning.

For a mere €225 I can not for the life of me understand why I waited so long to get rid of the old mattress.
