Thanks to some superb, night time wildlife photography, I at last have some concrete evidence as to why getting into bed is just so darn difficult on those late nights when I choose to stay up a little later fiddling with blog posts or twitching my thumbs over a game controller.

As you can see from these masterful shots below, that apart from Chantelle’s sprawling legs blocking most of the bottom half of the bed, I then have to contend with two other sleeping carcasses, neatly arranged in all the remaining open space, meaning that should I be able to get my top half in bed, I’ll then have to sleep with my legs straight up in the air.

Which doesn’t sound particularly comfortable.

So now you know. It’s dangerous choosing to only go to bed after everyone is already fast asleep! :)

Look at all these lifeless obstacles in my way!

Achilles, nimbly blocking any access from the foot of the bed

Olympus, solid as a rock in blocking my bed entry attempts

(Apologies for the poor photo quality by the way. The Samsung Star isn’t particularly adept at taking great photos. Heck, the designers haven’t even heard of a thing called a flash by the look of things! :P)
