Heavy drapes with blackout linings and a clock that projects the time on the ceiling. I only have to open one eye to see the time and can instantly close it if it's too early!

Can't believe I'm admitting this, but at present my bedroom window is covered with black plastic dustbin bags, I'm desperate for a permanent blackout solution, have tried three so far, but all allowing light through in different degrees,. Have been told a double layer of black felt is the answer, but unable to find, even John Lewis do not sell it, and they never let me down...I am desperate.

Try Dunelm they sell blackout material (off the roll in metres ). I've brought for my own bedroom and just Velcro in place at night - fab results and very reasonable price.
