In winter I need blankets plus doona
Even on the hottest of nights
When the ceiling presses down
And the air is breathless
I still pull a sheet up and around
A leg might pop out
I hold a corner tucked
All is exposed
I need one mooring at least in repose
Or else something might carry me away In dream
Lest I wake midair
Or something similar
I’m just saying
I need a sheet
At the very least
*a last bit of nonsense that needed to be emptied out of my head before I went to sleep. There are so many little habits people have with sleeping – it is a bit of a (wait for it…) hotbed of contention. 😂

Ha! 🙂 I have a fan, a 15 pound blanket to calm anxiety, a comforter on top of that, a pillow between the knees and a squishy pillow for the head. Sometimes my heating pad on my feet. Summer is a great struggle as they don’t make 15 pound sheets lol!
I have a chunky knit blanket for winter as it can get super cold here but in the summer a leg or both are exposed I have the opposite problem in that it is too hot to sleep
It is hot here in summer but still I need something – a sheet will do though.
Summer is when you over height toss and turn and can’t get to sleep. You put it perfectly in words
Thanks Lily 😊
I totally agree!
Yes, the sheet and the leg pop out! I can’t wait for summer!
