Ahhhhhhh. Sleep. Bed. Sleep.
I adore my bed. I'll be honest, I think I can safely say it's my favourite place in the world. The only thing nicer than collapsing into bed after a hard day, is collapsing into a freshly laundered bed. There's nothing quite like clean sheets is there?
I've been trying out the New Lenor fabric softener and their 7 day fresh sheet experience - delicate fragrance that lasts the whole week. I've been pretty seduced by the subtle scent of Pink Topaz and Magnolia which wafts as you move - it's released by touch - and while I'm not sure I was still getting it for the full 7 days (maybe my nose was just used to it by then), it certainly remained a lot fresher for a lot longer than usual.
Much as I love my bed and my sleep, I'm plagued with constant tiredness. So I jumped at the chance to have a personal analysis of my sleep patterns by Sammy Margo, a physiotherapist and sleep expert, author of The Good Sleep Guide.
My week's results were sent off, and I received back my personal suggestions and recommendations.
It doesn't seem to matter how early I go to bed, how late I lie in, whether I get an unbroken night or whether a small person wakes me up at 2am needing a wee...I'm ALWAYS knackered.
Sammy has suggested some useful hints which I will try. Suggestions like keeping my bedroom a little cooler; getting more fresh air and spending more time outdoors; rearranging and positioning my pillows to help with my ever-present backache. All good stuff. Whether I can go the whole hog and reduce my caffine intake remains to be seen...I do love my tea!
