My title is a play on a line from Star Wars, and I am indeed having my own wars with one particular star, the sun. My new house is brilliantly bright & airy, but my main bedroom at the front of the house gets blasted by the rays each morning. With the nights getting shorter I'm being woken earlier and earlier with my room being lit up like a summer's day, despite having blinds.
This is an unfiltered or brightened image of my bedroom, with the blinds closed, at 7am this morning.
The furry lump is the ever present Mrs Meow, who could probably sleep through a fire ball bursting into the room.
This Spring Dunelm are running a campaign to help Britain get a better njght's sleep. They have a four tier approach which can be layered to fix your particular problems. Barney Blackout is the bleating boy for me.
And here he is! Until Dunelm can work with me to get a blackout set up appropriate for my home, perhaps I can sleep with him over my eyes to block out the light!
I wonder do Dunelm have a sleep solution for cats who sit on your head in the middle of the night?
