Day 10: A Song That Makes You Elle Fall Asleep: Frou Frou Foxes in Midsummer Fires by the Cocteau Twins.
This song doesn’t necessarily make me fall asleep (you’re talking about someone who has suffered bouts of insomnia for the better part of two decades), but it certainly makes me slow down and appreciate the sound of it. It’s a beautiful song.
(As I write this, Elle is stretched out at the foot of my bed with her eyes closed and enjoying the music. Time for some Cherry Coloured Funk before I send her off to bed.)
(Halfway through Cherry Coloured Funk, Elle declared she was super tired and asked me to tuck her into bed. I’m honestly considering installing a sound system throughout the house and playing Cocteau Twins every evening one hour before bedtime. It’s like magic!)
