Before people get any ideas I don’t mean anything like that (get your minds out of the gutter haha)
I’m a bit of a nerd (and quite happy to be known as one) and thought to myself ‘new year new duvet and duvet cover and pillow cases, a nice bit of luxury for me to come home to”.
I decided to treat myself, I bought a well-known brand of duvets / bed accessories and the name of this duvet is “Ultra sleep” (not the brand name). Chance would be a fine thing!! I have had the worst night’s sleeps for the past 4-5 days in such a long time.
There’s been absolutely no ultra-night’s sleep for me! Just getting into bed and lying there, then there’s tossing and turning, my pillows being in the wrong position, the kicking of the duvet off me then dragging it back onto me.
All I can say is thank goodness I am sleeping by myself…I think if I had a significant other then they would have kicked me out of the bed…quite literally haha.
Now, I have a theory about my sleeping dilemmas! I’m sure it’s all psychological (my friends think I'm crazy) but I put my sleeping issues down to the fact that my old duvet and new duvet are different materials. My new one is fluffier and full of duvet life, whereas my old one was getting on a little bit and the fluffiness had gone.
The duvet cover and pillow cases are also different materials to my other duvets sets and the feel of them against my skin is seriously messing with my head haha! I don’t know why because I have stayed at friends home’s before, I visit my family and stay at my Mum and step-dad’s house and at my dad and step mum’s house and have slept in beds with all different duvet types, but for some reason this one is causing me serious issues.
My friends at home and work are making fun of me and are singing at me every time they see me saying I have bed issues…I laugh at them because it genuinely is funny but I am sooooo tired. I am getting just a couple of hours sleep per night, I occasionally fall back asleep but it is not without a fight first. However believe it or not I have still managed to keep my usual happy and cheery demeanour despite my lack of sleep.
|In good spirits in my onesie despite no sleep haha|
|Can you say...tired???|
|At least someone is comfy and can sleep!!|
I’m going to leave a very appropriate song by a great 90s band for you to listen to as I attempt to go to sleep…wish me luck haha
