What side of the bed do you sleep on?
 

The left! The side closest to my iPhone ha ha

What’s your weirdest habit in bed? 

I always have to have at least a toe tucked in even if it’s a boiling hot night and I’m sleeping with no blankets on. I also can’t sleep if I don’t have a bottle of water next to my bed because I know I’ll wake up in the middle of the night super thirsty and it’s a long way down the stairs at 3 am!

Morning or night person? 

Moderate evening person ha ha…I’m not really a night owl or an early riser. I’m normally in bed by 10.30pm, read for 30 mins or so and out by 11-11.30. I definitely need at least 8 hours sleep so I try to wake up around 7-7.30am.

If you could invite 5 people to sit on your bed (dead or alive) who would they be? 

Keith Haring, Carl Sagan, The Buddha, Jim Morrison, Anaïs Nin.

What keeps you up at night? 

Art ideas I’m excited about (I normally have to get up and sketch them so I can get to sleep) or the usual existential crises that always seem to hit us around 11.30pm on a Sunday night. 

Favourite music to listen to in bed?

Classical, Jazz or early 60’s music like The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Beatles. I like listening to really beautiful soul moving music in bed to you can lie there staring at the ceiling pondering life. 

Do you spring out of bed or do you hit the snooze button? 

So much snooze, then Instagram scrolling, then procrastination, then staring out the window. Can take a good 30 minutes to get moving something. It’s a bad habit I’m trying to work on!
