What does your sleeping position say about you?
We recently discussed how you can tell a lot about a
person's personality by the pyjamas they wear, but can the same be
said for your sleeping position?
Whether you lie in the log position, spread out like

other half. Unsurprisingly, whoever it is sprawling across the bed
and denying the other person any space to sleep is considered a
