sleep in weird placesSleep is one of those things that can be a bit of a contentious issue in the MtW house. It’s a running joke that I could sleep on a washing line, were that my only option, while Husband is a full-blown insomniac who has trouble sleeping even in the most ideal conditions. The girls fall somewhere in the middle – BB sleeps really well, going down around 8pm and generally sleeping right through until 7 the next morning, while Sausage is a ‘late to bed/early to rise’ kinda gal and seems to function on far less sleep than other kids of her age.

When I was younger, I was always the first person to fall asleep at a sleepover with friends and I’ve actually fallen asleep in a nightclub once before, whilst completely sober I might add. I once slept in my parents conservatory, covered with coats, because my Dad accidentally locked me out of the house, which was rather chilly and uncomfortable. I’ve also been known to fall asleep sitting at my laptop, with my fingers still on the keyboard. By far, the weirdest place I’ve fallen asleep is next to Husband’s hospital bed, after a long wait in A&E. Sure, that may not sound weird, but when you consider the fact that I was STANDING UP at the time and almost smashed my face in, you get a better picture of the weirdness of the situation!

I have to say, far from being a problem, I actually see my ability to fall asleep in cruel and uncomfortable conditions as a gift – everything is better after a sleep and being able to get my head down wherever I am leaves me far better equipped to deal with waking life! Sadly, my girls don’t seem to have inherited this gift and on the extremely rare occasions that Husband and I have managed a night out since the kids came along, Sausage has never managed to fall asleep if we aren’t there for her.

How about you? What’s the weirdest place you’ve ever managed to fall asleep? Does sleep come easily to you or are you a night owl like Husband and Sausage? Leave me a comment below and then get yourself over to Carpetright’s social media to leave your entry!
