    I've stopped keeping anything on my bedside it's now all on the floor next to the bed which is within easier reach, so I keep a bottle of glucotabs and my phone there, i've discovered when having a night time hypo it's easier to just put a hand straight onto the floor to grab either the phone to turn the 'low' alarm off and grab the tabs to neck, generally I feel so unwell with a night time hypo that's all I can manage :hungover:

    One of the wonderful things of buying a house is that you can actually draw on your plug sockets and you won't even get in trouble for it :)

    Not much use on the diabetes front. But my phone as an alarm & some jim jams i never wear..
    I may have hypo treatment in my work trousers, thrown off bed side.?

    The rest gets dumped on a coffee table in the living room..
    I'm still confident if i can make it to the kitchen, having been brought up in a 5 bedroom house. I can do it in a bungalow..

    Hotel rooms are different. I make sure all is within reach.

    @Antje77 ? That's pretty rock & roll.. :cool::)

    Mine would rival Tracey Emin, so no photos. But I have dextrose tabs, test kit, phone, Rileylink, other meds and fifteen tons of assorted junk. And dust.

    Jelly babies and my phone. As well as a Dyson fan (too hot in the night), lavender oil ( to help me sleep), and ear plugs in case the hubs starts snoring!

    For me, my phone, my bf’s phone, my kit and my potato bf. He is useful because the night stand is on his side of the bed.
