For years, we have felt the need to shut out the light from our bedrooms. We truly believed that our inability to sleep solidly was due
to our curtains not being thick enough, long enough, wide enough...
At a time in our lives when many folks of our ages are wakeful or needing the
loo in the middle of the night...as we did before living here. We now sleep soundly
and only extreme weather (torrential rain or howling wind) has disturbed us.
We don’t have any electricity around our bed.
Our wooden cabin doesn’t have any built-in sockets and
our only electric cable is in the kitchen, which is at the opposite end of the
cabin. The fridge is the only thing that remains on at night and we switch
everything else off...absolutely everything; including our phones and we pack all our devices away each night.
We use candles, tea lights and torches once our kitchen lights are off - it's just nice and simple.
We all have a sense of calm and take great pleasure in the sunlight that seeps through the clouds and bathes our cabin in it's happy warmth...
We love it and are thriving on it – are you?
Tell us about it.
Love Kay and Sime
