There really is something to be said for curling up in bed as Winter sets in, cuddling up with a film and getting an early night.
Sadly for me this hasn’t been the case over the past few months.
I suffer from insomnia, on and off throughout the year. Actually, suffer is probably the wrong word, as most of the time, it allows me to catch up with e-mails, discover old albums that I’d forgotten about, and find ideas for decorating the house. Unfortunately, us humans need that sleep stuff as well so it’s become a problem. With the stress of the house renovation and being generally run down I’ve really struggled to get a single good night’s sleep since before the Summer.
Anyway, I digress – as per.
I love our bedroom. It’s an escape from the crumbling walls which dominate the rest of our home, and provides a really cosy hub for Joe and I. So when you bear in mind that I was using it to essentially play Candy Crush until 5 in the morning on my phone, you could say it was a waste. The Fine Bedding Company got in touch and asked if I wanted to test something out. I answered some questions for a sleep expert on my current quality of sleep and I was kindly sent a duvet in the mail to see how it would affect my level of shuteye.
I don’t for one second think that a quilt is the answer to my insomnia. It’s always been an ongoing thing. I think I’m just destined to be nocturnal. But, after one night with the new bedding put to use, I slept for 8 actual hours. I don’t think this is all that impressive to most people, but consider I was getting anything between 1 and 5 hours beforehand, it really surprised me how well I’d snoozed, and I believe in credit where it’s due.
It’s so fluffy and light, yet so super snug at the same time. After those cold nights sleeping with a hole on our house whilst the construction has been ongoing, it’s been a bit of a lifesaver, and I’m really chuffed to be part of useful society again, and not a walking Zombie – even if it was Halloween lately. Oh, and Bear likes it too.
