I live in a dormer bungalow and up until recently my bedroom has been one of the rooms upstairs - I love the shape of my bedroom. Being in the roof space it has quirky slants, a huge panoramic window (overlooking Falmouth Harbour) and 'neat' little corners.
BUT!!! since being breathless (really short of breath sometimes) I tend to stay downstairs. There is a bedroom downstairs but I don't use it. Most nights, lately, I stay in my sitting room and sleep on the three-seater sofa. I put my PJs on and sleep on my sofa covered by a wine-coloured blanket (really cosy) and what I call my 'mink' (a furry blanket I bought years ago in BHS).
Am I the only one who does this because I am afraid that by the time I get to the top of the stairs I will be in a 'bit of a state' or are there others who do the same as I do?
Even though no one else does this, I am not going to stop. I can watch TV when I'm 'in bed' and once I switch off TV I can see the outside light shining through one of the windows. I feel safe in my 'alternative bed'.
It's almost midnight and I am going to wash, put my PJs on and get into my 'alternative bed'.
Goodnight all you lovely people. Have a good night.
Lots of hugs
