For a long time now, I’ve slept with a little statue of Hypnos (which I painted myself) beside my bed. As Hypnos is the God of sleep, I thought this might bless me with peaceful nights, and indeed, I haven’t really had any issues at all sleeping.
But yesterday, I started packing up certain items in my bedroom as my husband and I are due to move house quite soon, and my Hypnos statue was one such item.
And guess what? Last night I woke up at 3am and could not get back to sleep!
I don’t think Hypnos is too happy about me packing away his statue. I only hope he doesn’t bear a grudge and lets me sleep better from now on. I can guarantee him a place in the bedroom in our new house, so I hope he understands that!
