Are you one of those people who can sleep anywhere? Where’s the weirdest place you’ve fallen asleep? Do you enjoy a good daytime nap? I have many pals who can nap sitting up, can grab some zzzs on a bus and who have even fallen asleep into their lunch (during our late-night student days). I’ve never really been one of those people. I’d like to nap while I’m on public transport and enjoy the benefits of not having to drive, but I worry that I will miss my stop and end up in Scotland! Even a sleep-deprived me would soldier on and not nap – I was more likely to cry from being over-tired than put my head down for forty winks during the day. But recently things have started to change…
Whether it’s due to getting a little older or having a more active lifestyle something is tiring me out. I don’t know what it is but one thing’s for sure; I’ve started to nod off in cars. I get a happy sleepy feeling when it’s warm and cosy – when someone else is driving, of course! I never really fall asleep though, because I like to keep a look out for traffic or hazards even when I’m not the driver. Even so, I’ve started to realise how my cats feel when they simply can’t stay awake any longer, their eyelids get heavy and their breathing slows down. It can be quite funny watching my cats fighting the urge to fall asleep and it’s the same with babies too. How nice it must be to just be able to sleep anytime, anywhere!
I’ve just heard about a competition by Carpetright to win a £700 bed or a luxury glamping holiday with the family which you can enter by sharing photos of your friends or family sleeping in the strangest of places. Just tweet @Carpetright, tag Carpetright in a Facebook status or use @Carpetrightuk in your Instagram captions along with the hashtag #WeirdestPlaceToSleep. I’m pretty sure that no one will be posting photos of a sleepy me; unless my husband snaps a photo during the night – but I’m not sure that ‘in bed’ is a particularly strange place to snooze! Even so, I’m going to be making hot chocolate for all my friends and offering family a blanket to snuggle under when then come to visit in the hope of taking a sneaky photo to enter the competition – of course I would share the prize with them if I were to win, it’s only fair!
Let me know if you can sleep in an unusual place and I look forward to seeing your photos for the competition! The competition closes on 3rd September 2014 so get your entries in now!
