I am not a big one for taking a nap. It is something Michael has encouraged me to do more often but as a general rule I find getting off to sleep really hard and so an hours nap involves 45+ minutes of trying to get to sleep and only 15 minutes of actual sleeping. The result is that I wake up feeling worse/grumpy and so unless I am poorly I tend to avoid them. However here in Greece things are different. There are no time limits of naps for a start, also this heat is my ideal operating temperature and so afternoon naps are totally a thing for us.
Whilst everyone else has the air-con on in their rooms I sleep with the doors and shutters open at night basking in the summer nighttime air. Michael loves me so much that he plays along with this despite that fact that I know he wants to ramp up the air-con to icy temperatures. The same is true during the day. All the rest of my family retreats to their rooms for a nap sealed off to the outside world and surrounded by horrible cold evil air-conditioned temperature but me, I take my nap au natural.
