Don't you just love going to bed when it's all freshly made, ironed sheets (yes I do) and all? And don't you just hate it when you then can't get to sleep and when you finally do, you wake up all night long? Well, that is exactly what happened to me last night. I think I must have lain awake for about an hour and a half, tossing and turning and turning those ironed sheets into messy sheets again, before finally dozing off. Not even sleeping: just dozing off. And then I woke up about ten times during the night. Never very long, but every time I got a look of the alarm clock!

Very annoying!!


  1. Very annoying! I've had a lot of that recently. I hope you'll have a decent night tonight. Love the paw print pyjamas, too;-)

  2. My grandmother used to iron sheets. She also ironed my grandfather's boxer shorts. But I thought that kind of thing had gone out somewhere around my mom's generation or maybe mine.
    But, hey, if you're doing it for yourself because you want to do it, and not for some guy in boxer shorts, more power to you.
    Still, one would suppose you would then drift off to dreamland on a well-ironed cloud, but you didn't. That must be SO annoying. I never sleep well, or at least haven't for the past 20 or 30 years, so I can empathize. Poor Mara, there there, sleep tight tonight.

  3. PS
    What Janice said. Me, too. Great paw-print PJs.

  4. The same thing happened to me last night! Bummer!

  5. Our sheets are in the wash right now. I don't iron them, we love flannel sheets and use them all year round. I had one of those nights last night too! We should have chatted online :) I am really lazy today because of it.
    Love the picture.

  6. I can't begin to tell you how many nights I have like that. Every night that I don't is a triumph.

  7. I know exactly what you mean Mara. Clean sheets tonight and I couldn't sleep. Had to get up again and here I am at 2 am!!

    Happy New Year. A x

  8. I love the first night in clean sheets! Your pajamas look so warm and cozy -- I hope you get a better night's sleep tonight!

  9. Maybe a teddy bear to snuggle would help you sleep at night. Maybe someday someone will have one made at build a bear just for you and mail it to you
