The Bedtime Tag

I’ve been tagged by Jaymee from The Mum Diaries to take part in The Bedtime Tag. 10 questions all about my bedtime routine. I love reading these kind of posts because, quite frankly, I’m nosy! Do let me know if you decide to take part in the Q&A yourself as I’d love to read your answers. :)

The Bedtime Tag:

Describe your usual bedtime routine.

Firstly… Hahahahahahaha…. bedtime routine… hahahaha. Right, OK… I’m done.

My ‘bedtime routine’ usually starts with me drifting off on the couch in front of the telly at around about 8pm! Since I’ve had two children to look after all day (Jasmine’s two-years-old and Elowen is a mere 7 weeks) I’ve been absolutely knackered come the evening. I can’t remember the last time I managed to watch a TV programme from start to end! (No Sherlock spoilers, please!)

I will continue to drift in and out of consciousness for several hours before finally admitting defeat and heading to bed.

I’ll brush my teeth, go to the loo and if I’ve worn make up that day (which happens very rarely at the moment) then I’ll wipe it off with a face wipe. No fancy skincare routines here – by this point I just want to get into bed ASAP.

I’ll then get into bed and feed Elowen whilst scrolling through Instagram (what can I say, I’m addicted). I’ll lower my phone’s brightness so that when I use it throughout the night (nightfeeds) it’s not so glaringly bright. Once Elowen is sated I’ll pop her in her co-sleeper crib (for all of 10 minutes until she ends up back in bed snuggled up with me) and then it’s off to the land of nod I go until my first wake up which is usually around 2.00am.

What are your favourite pyjamas?

These ones…

I fell in love with them when I saw them in a shop window back in November. Stephen remembered and bought them for me for Christmas. They’re so fleecy and snug! I also love that the trouser legs are cuffed because I’m short (5ft 1in) most PJ trousers are far too long for me and I end up tripping up over them!

What is your current bedtime reading?

I loved watching the BBC TV series Versailles last year so I asked for the book (which is based on the series) for Christmas. I need to start going to bed earlier to make time to read it. It’s not one for the fainthearted – it’s rather racy.

What would I find on your bedside table?

Not a lot – I’m not a fan of clutter! But you will find my Lumie Bodyclock, my aroma diffuser, a notepad and pen, my book and a bottle of water. I usually keep my phone under my pillow… which probably means it’s frying my brain or something.

What scent makes you sleepy?


What is your usual bedtime and wakeup time?

Bedtime tends to be anytime between 10.30 and midnight.

As for wake-ups? Every two hours! ;)

What are your top three bedtime products?

  1. My breastfeeding pillow
  2. Lavender room spray (I use this one.)
  3. My Lumie Bodyclock

What is your most common sleeping position?

I usually sleep in the foetal position, facing out of the bed (towards Elowen).

Do you have anything you like to take to bed with you?

A small orang-utan named Hogan. (I’m not referring to my husband!)

What is your worst bedtime habit?

Eating food in bed and then complaining that there’s loads of toast crumbs in the bed clothes.


I’m now going to tag some bloggers whose answers I’d love to read so please join in if you fancy it:

    Love your PJs! How do you rate your lumie? Thanks for the tag xx

      Thank you – I can’t wear them to bed as I get too hot but I wear them loads during the daytime (am a slob!) ;)
      I really like the lumie clock, it’s one of the simpler versions. I use it as lamp when feeding E during the night because I can control the brightness meaning I have it just low enough to see what I’m doing but not so bright that it will wake Stephen up. Stephen has one on his side too and he always says it helps with getting up during the dark mornings. xx

    Oh you’re basically talking about my impending nightime routine since I’m due any minute and have a 19 month old. Your pj’s look so snuggly! I hope the every 2 hours wake up calls stop soon for you you’ll be exhausted xxx

    those jammies look so cosy! I’m in need of a new book so that sounds like a good choice – love a good period drama! x

    Love the PJ’s they look super snuggly! Your bedtime routine sounds similar to mine, well, without the addition of the baby YET (although the Snuzpod is now up… I just sleep next to an empty space, looking at it hopefully!) I love a late night Instagram scroll too :)

    Pre-baby the husband and I (also an Orangutan) used to order a Chinese and eat that in bed. That’s probably the filthiest thing we’ve done in bed haha!

      Hahaha, love this. You filthy animals! ;) xx
