Sleeping In My Own Bed!

“Don’t you simply love going to bed. To curl up warmly in a nice warm bed, in the lovely darkness. That is so restful and then gradually drift away into sleep…” 
~ C.S. Lewis

Ben and I arrived home from our little adventure last night. To the city house anyway.

Our flight into Brisbane was delayed. And then delayed again.

The luggage took forever to turn up on the carousel.

The line for a taxi was stupidly long.

We finally tumbled through the front door, dialled for some Chinese food, ate it in front of television in a sleepy blur.

And then, oh, meditation, a long hot shower, and bed.

Our own bed. With clean sheets.

Ben had thought me crazy making the bed with new linen at 3.30am on the morning we left home. I assured him he would thank me. Perhaps he would have too if he hadn’t fallen asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow.

I lay awake just a little longer, appreciating the perfectness of my own pillow, the softness of my bed, the scent of clean sheets, the familiarity of everything. And the quiet. It was heavenly.

We’re off to the farm this morning. I’m homesick for our dogs and the cows and for quiet country roads and big skies. I can’t wait to give Harry and Rufous the biggest cuddles. I hope they’re pleased to see us too!

It was only a short break, but we both feel renewed.

Much love, Nicole xx

  1. Sounds like a great night sleep. They are the best after a holiday, especially the clean linen!! Have a good drive back to the farm🌟

  2. I envy your ability to got to sleep so quickly and stay asleep.
    Unfortunately for me ‘the monsters of the mind’ visit me every night.
    I have always had sleeping problems. The medical profession is stumped.
    I have stayed awake for 10 days with no rest when I was ill.
    I have literally tried everything to help with sleep.
    The only way I can get to sleep is with a white noise machine.
    At least that works for a few hours.
    I still manage to function probably because by now I am used to it.

  3. You deserved a good break.
    I like clean sheetswhen I come back from holidays too.
    Hope the dogs were just as pleased to see you both
    Love
    Mary.xxx
