I had a fabulous night’s sleep last night, thanks in large part to putting bedspreads over the top of my curtain rods so that no early morning light leaks in. Usually I wake up around 3am, just as the sky begins to lighten, and then I’m awake and checking the clock several more times in the wee hours until the alarm goes off.
Even with black-out curtains, light was streaming in through the top gap between the curtain rod and the window. But well-placed bedspreads did the trick! When I woke up at 7am this morning, the room was very dark and I I had slept straight through the night. I will have to play around with the arrangement so it’s a bit more artistic, but it’s definitely functional!
