I know! I was kind of surprised to, but it turns out there has been a case where a woman has asked for a divorce because her husband snored so much, she’d had enough. Of even greater interest about this case, is that is happened in 1951. It just sounds like something a flighty, 21st […]
Why, oh why…………
Motivation drives human behaviour. Reasons give us the basis of our actions and decisions. Nothing new there. So let me jump straight to the point – why sleep separately? A basic question you might think, given the nature of my site, book and maturity of my conversations about the topic. But WHY is a constant […]
Liking the new “I Do”…..
What is a traditional relationship? It’s a question I have immersed myself in since my husband and I took those first steps (in different directions) to separate rooms in 2005. As a result, for the last 11 years I’ve been challenging people to prioritise health over the ‘tradition’ of sharing a bed each night with […]
The Comfort of Connection….
I’ve written before (The BIGger Picture) about that as humans, we have an innate drive to be accepted. Most of us like to feel ‘normal’. We like to know that our choices are within a range that does not raise social alarm bells in those from who seek approval – consciously, or subconsciously. All animals […]
My one piece of advice….
In an interview just after my book’s release in Canada, a journalist from The Globe and Mail in Toronto recently asked me a fantastic question. On reflection, I was surprise that no-one had actually asked me this question before. And the question was….. “What would be my No 1 piece of advice for a person […]
Those who know me well, know of my great love for George Clooney. I know that I am but one of likely millions of women who still cannot, after many years, stop swooning waves crashing over me when ever his handsome face appears in any media. Who cannot just adore this man? Not sure about […]
‘Sleep Apart, Stay Together’… why of course!
Bed manufacturer Sealy (in the UK) has released the findings of a recent study into British sleep habits. While one could be a little cynical about a bed manufacturer espousing the benefits of couples sleeping separately, the stats of 36% of couples sleeping separately (even sometimes) does confirm the broad trends I discovered while […]
A Ubiquitous Dilemma…
Just a quick one. I had to smile when I was alerted to this great forum discussion about separate sleeping. There are many forum discussions that take place on the topic, but they do tend to be on forums about relationships, or mums and kids. However, the Texas Fishing Forum has an ‘Off Topic’ discussion […]
Scratching a feminist itch….
I have never been in a position where I felt I needed to identify or characterise myself as a feminist. However, I do know how fortunate I am to live in a social environment where I feel equal. And if pushed by commentary or controversy, without hesitation I would thank all those women before me […]
Let’s talk about sleep baby…
“Let’s talk about you and me, let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be….” (Minor apologies to Salt-N-Peppa) While a commitment at 48 mins and 57 secs this discussion on Radio Times this discussion delves well into some familiar themes of the separate sleeping debate.
