I don't care if it's got a mattress in it, I still don't fancy sleeping in a box. :)

When it came in the box I thought they’d sent us a single, but hey how comfy it is ?

I can only dream of a good nights sleep :)

Mate the trouble I’ve had with my neck and shoulder has settled down a lot since we got this, also I sleep more or less straight through maybe wake once for a slash ?

We bought an Emma one about a year ago which is very similar. It has made a huge difference. We really sleep well on it and I have a lot less aches and pains. We also got memory foam pillows and they really help too.

Earplugs every night for me if I remember. Much better sleep with them in. And for some reason I dream less which is a major thing fo walking me up. Been bad with man flu and had rubbish sleeps since Boxing Day. Other night with earplugs in I slept 12 hrs solid with earplugs in. Body must of needed it. Daughter thought I was dead as dog was crying to be on my bed and I never woke up

tips for a good night's kip without spending £700 on a new matress....

1, don't drink tea or coffee after 8pm

2, leave tech like phones, PC's and tablets alone at least an hour before you turn in

3, have the bedroom cooler than the rest of the house

4, have the windows slightly open to let some fresh air into the room

5, read a few pages of a book to take your mind off the day

6, eat dinner early where you can, eating late means your body has still to process the proteins and keeps you awake

7, early nights don't mean extra sleep, go to bed around 10.30ish... earlier if you are up early (before 7am) in the morning

8, aim to get 7 to 8 hours kip and plan accordingly

9, do a few stretches to get the knots out of your body, you'll sleep more comfortably.....

I used to do some of these when I was working a 3 shift rota... nights. afternoons and days... shift work is a killer and it takes a while to get your sleep patterns right... the above helped me... hope it helps you

Have a bottle of tonic water by the bed and have a glug before hitting the pillow. Wife says it's the quinine that stops cramps. Definitely works for us.
Yeah - I'd already been told about tonic. I often have a gin & tonic before I come home. Be a shame to waste a bottle of tonic without putting a gin in it. :)

You can get a strap to stop snoring but what it does is keep your mouth shut so your not catching flies. Ie dry gob.

My missus snores like a B'stid, so I got her one of those funny plastic gumshields that's supposed to stop the snoring... it sort of works didn't stop it... but quietened it down a fair bit... I sleep a bit better now too

I’ve been doing shifts for 2 years now and I’ve never slept better. A lot of people I know really struggle but I don’t mind them at all.

I’m sure it will catch up with me when I’m older but I’ll enjoy it whilst it lasts.
