#WeirdestPlaceToSleep Competition

My sleeping habits are quite uniform, I usually can be found asleep in a bed!  I have on occasion fallen asleep on the floor but that’s about as daring as it gets.  The boys on the other hand have fallen asleep in a variety of places including their own dinner or the dogs basket. They used to play in their ball pit so often and tire themselves out they used to nod off in there too!

My hubbie fell asleep up a tree when he was 18, due to a lot of luck he did not fall out seeing as he had his beer goggles on!  He managed to balance himself up there for a three-hour power nap before his long walk home. 

He seems to have had quite a habit for sleeping in unusual places back then.  On another occasion he slept in a ditch full of spongy vegetation for an hour, only waking when the rain came, so I think my hubbie is a suitable candidate for this Carpetright competition about the weirdest sleeping place.  The competition is really easy to enter, just a quick tweet or facebook status and the prizes are lovely, so well worth entering. 

What furniture we own looks lost in our new place, so £700 to spend at Carpetright might mean we can make the place more comfortable.  The competition closes on the 3rd September so you have time to ask your friends and family if they have slept anywhere obscure or interesting if you are more conventional like me.  I should ask my brother he has led quite a life; I bet he has had some curious naps in his time…

As hubbie has got older he is not quite so flamboyant in his sleeping practices.  I think his body craves the comfort of a soft bed, I guess the novelty of sleeping in trees and ditches wears a bit thin when you have aching joints and a bad back!  But I guess at least he enjoyed some rock and roll sleeping habits for a little while anyway.
