I'm prepared. I've been broken into fairly recently, so I have to be prepared otherwise I would never sleep again.
I sleep with pj's on.
I have a baseball bat under the bed, handle within reach if I just reach straight down to the floor, so it's ready to go.
Phone's under the pillow, for ringing 000, which I've also had to do on another occasion.
Also my phone/wallet/keys/handbag is all split up at night in my room, so that hopefully even if they stole one thing they may not find the others. Replacing all that stuff was a MASSIVE pain and also very expensive.

Many years ago I woke up to a drunken man asleep in my bed. I didn't know him and I am still unsure how he got in. I was single and lived alone so I slipped quietly out of bed and ran down the road and called the police. Another time I walked in to my home when my then bf was away. It was just on dusk and I had my work laid on the floor. There were big wet muddy footprints on the papers which lead to the open balcony door. I slammed the door shut and rang the police. Scary. These days I have something in every room. I have a special something taped to the back of my headboard. Kids don't know is there and I hope I could reach it in time. I also have a home alarm that has a panic button.

I have a psycho Ginger Ninja cat and my foul mouth which I'm fairly sure would scare anyone away!

We both aloe naked but DH even fully naked would be terrifying as he is very protective. He has a very heavy torch next to his side of the bed that if I ever needed I could use that but statistics show that weapons are often used by the attacker once they take it off the defender so most cases you end up getting more hurt by using a weapon (that being said if you knock them out pretty quickly with a club or bar you'll be safe) police recommend never using knives!!
