When I was younger I had a nasty habit of sleep walking. Thankfully it has subsided over the years and it very rarely happens now.
However, at 3.10am this morning I got a sharp pain in my leg. I moved around trying to ease the discomfort. I then realised it was a bit chilly and reluctantly I opened my eyes.
I then came to realise that I am not in my comfy bed but in my sitting room with my hand on the handle of the glass patio door. The sharp pain in my leg was caused by the scratching of my confused cat who was staring up at me from the floor below.
I have no clue how I made it from the bed, over the obstacle course in the hall way and into the sitting room without waking up. I can't recall that I was dreaming of anything in particular.
What makes this situation slightly more uncomfortable and disturbing is that the "obstacle course" in the hall is in fact two big black bags containing my sitting room curtains which are due to be left into the cleaners. I am in my sitting room. There are no curtains on the window and I am starkers naked.
I have been having problems sleeping lately, due to the heat I think. I thrash around in the bed trying to get comfortable. I woke up on Wednesday morning with my head at the foot of the bed.
Tonight, I will be 1. Wearing Pajamas and 2. putting on the alarm so that I don't manage to make it all the way to the beach before waking up.
