Whenever I head off to bed for the night, I like to leave my curtains open a bit so I can look out at the sky as I sleep. In my new house in Southampton, I rearranged my room so that my bed was by the window, but all I see out of it are the trees in the back garden. I came back home to London a few days ago, and I get a decent view of the sky from my bed.
Last night, for the first time since I came back, the sky was fairly clear and light pollution was minimal, and I was able to spot a single star through the window as I was laying in my bed.
I could see it twinkling up in the night sky. It was so mesmerising.
And watching the star, I fell into a deep sleep.
