The phone app that’s helping me sleep at night

I’ve always been able to fall asleep of a night-time fairly easily, but a few weeks ago I started waking up in the early hours of the morning.  I’d toss and turn and doze off occasionally, but never go back into a proper sleep and would be jerked into a hazy reality when my alarm went off at 4:45am.

When Adam and I moved back into our Australian home I decided I wanted to replace our old bookshelf  (a flatpack I’d bought and put together in my 20s, which had sustained a number of house moves and was starting to look a little sad) with something that better reflected our style as a couple and fitted into the space we had.

I’d been eyeing off pretty stylised floating shelf set-ups on my Pinterest and Instagram pages for months and decided I’d found the solution.

Thankfully Adam was keen too, so last weekend out came the drill and up went the shelves…
