I am a mum. I have a daughter who is 5 and this weekend she is staying at her dads. Last night I fell asleep just after 12am. When I woke this morning, my room was completely black. But, then I have very thick curtains which keeps the light out and so light hitting my face is not what usually wakes me, if it's not my daughter, then my body clock wakes me around 8 o clock.
First thing I did was search for my mobile, I don't have a clock in my room. The mobile was across the other side of the room. I remember putting it on top of the reclaimed timber chest of drawers about 7pm last night. I flipped it open, it said 11:07. My mind told me that something was wrong with the phone and so I went off in the pursuit of another clock to be certain of it. I fired up my laptap, that had been placed on the carpeted floor just before I fell asleep last night. It whirred to life and confirmed that I had indeed slept for 11 hours.
