after all this time I know this place so well I can find my way around with the light off from the bed to the door past the chest of drawers with my eyes open or closed in the dark and where do I go when I reach the landing? do I go downstairs do I go into the spare room? at the top of the stairs is the bathroom door will I wash my face should I have a shower? in the dark every single night I memorised this room I turned off the light and I walked around this room if I do it right I can reach the door without bumping into the furniture in the dark
