poll :: which side of the bed do you sleep on?

as the husband is away on business, i invited my little friend to sleep in bed with me. he is a good snuggle bunny but has no concept of personal space. i wake up and he's curled up on my face. next moment, i have a fluffball right up my crotch. a little too close for comfort... but i love him still! :)

here's hoping the husband doesn't check on this blog... otherwise im so going to receive an angry phone call very soon!


which got me thinking...


which side of the bed do you always sleep on? 


if i get first picks, im always on the side against the wall (as a child, i had a history of rolling out of bed) but daniel consciously picks the side closer to the door. i asked him once 'why?'. and his theory is if anyone breaks into the house, he can jump up and protect us! isn't that sweet?

so darlings....
which side do you sleep?

  1. haha... SO SWEET.. i like the side closer to the door too... cos i have to wake up earlier to make him breakfast :)

    I used to sleep with my fuffball too and he was one fiesty partner to sleep with. He would sleep at my feet and if i were to so accidentally kick him, he would growl at me... made me wonder whose bed it was...

  2. i always choose the right side ...cos i tend to sleep more on my left (on the side)
    well unless we are at a hotel room that has spooky looking walls/windows/etc that deters me from sleeping on the right side

    1. so you'll face the inside of the bed when you sleep on your side? i sleep on the left too and i like facing away!

      awww.. sounds mean when i type it out!

  3. oh i meant right side of the bed (when i'm looking at the bed)
    i face away when i lie on my left side... and it works well cos the hubs sleeps on his right (so facing away too!)
    and because i face out, every time i open my eyes, i see Maki staring at me (can be quite spooky!)...waiting for me to wake up.

    1. hahahah! :) same here! marriage the real deal! we used to sleep facing each other in full embrace. but thats definitely a thing of the past! :) lol.

      muu is on his side cos muu has nightmares sometimes and needs cuddling. he's more patient with that..

  4. Ever since I got divorced years ago, I now sleep at a diagonal. I think it was a subconscious finger to him. lol Now my boyfriend of 3+ years doesn't seem to care that I still sleep diagonal. Didn't care enough to fix it, I guess. But a direct answer, I also sleep closest to the wall and my bf sleeps closest to the door.

  5. As a child I love to sleep near a wall, but now an adult, I don't like sleeping near a wall. Because it is easier for me to get up middle of the night for toilet break or feeding my kids. ;p and like your hubby, I like sleeping near the door too!

    I had a history rolling out bed too, and this habit stop since i share my bed with my sister. I never choose any particular side, maybe that's mean i can sleep everywhere.

  12. ooh my daaays!!! i'm the direct opposite of Daniel !!! i sleep near windows, so if the bad guys/ aliens/ zombies come thru the door, i can be the first to escape!!! they'll get my husband first. yaay. HAAHAHAH!!!

    assuring to know reading the above comments that its normal to start "owning" your own space and not have to spoon/ cuddle/ canoodle each other all night. i was feeling mad guilty for the longest time!!!!!!!! phew!! cheers girls.

  13. Chutney has a tendency to sleep bum to bum with me anyway. Except for one week where I was having a rumbly tum and accidentally (or not!) dutch oven-ed him when his face was under the doona. Oops.

    Dude was UPSET.
