Nothing like flopping, tumbling, folding into a simple bed after a hard day’s work or activity, stretching your limbs, wiggling your toes, and sinking into sweet sleep. 

Nothing seemed to me more miraculous than that simple bed in that bare and freezing chamber.  It was there that I revelled in the bliss of relaxation after the exhaustion of the day’s work. 

Bonne nuit!
