In the story Mr Grinling and his wife live in a little cottage on the cliffs above the lighthouse.
When they are in bed Mr Grinling can see the light and hear the horns on the passing ships tooting.
I assume Mrs Grinling can see and hear the same things.
I'm beginning to feel like the lighthouse keepers wife.
My L&M has recently decided that all the upstairs doors need to be closed at night to keep the heat in.
This is ok but it means I cannot see where I am going when I get up to go to the toilet during the night.
So after 3 or 4 weeks of me cannoning off the bed and the walls hubby decided his sleep was being disturbed way too much.
So he bought a nightlight to fix above the bathroom door, it has a motion sensor so it comes on when I get up in the night.
Unfortunately it as developed a fault and flashes on and off throughout the night.
It doesn't disturb my beloved because he sleeps on the far side of the room.
I however sleep nearest to the door, what with the light and my beloved farting like a foghorn I really do feel like the lighthouse keepers wife.
