As anyone who has read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy will know, towels are an essential piece of kit for when traveling the cosmos. We have quite a few in the JC residence and I had a bit of a revelation the other day about how they are stored in the airing cupboard.

They've always looked a bit messy, all thrown in with no real sense of order, until I realised that if I folded them square with the fold facing outward, and packed them on top of each other (preferably with the larger ones at the bottom) they looked rather neat. It may seem odd, but it never occurred to me before to do things this way. Deeeeply satisfying (and incredibly sad).

Douglas Adams would have been impressed.
