Monitor Calibration Inconsistency

For the past few months I have been using Spyder 5 Pro to calibrate my monitor, and re-calibrating it every week or so, always in the same conditions (middle of the day, lights off, door closed, curtains drawn as this is when I edit photos). However, lately I have noticed that when I re-calibrate instead of advising the brightness level to be around 20-25 on the monitor, it is advising around 9-10, which I believe is too dark my monitor conditions. The only thing I can think of that may have changed is the intensity of the sunlight outside, but surely that alone and with curtains drawn can't make such a big difference?

The photos here were all edited around a month ago before it started advising me to reduce brightness further. I believe that they are at the correct brightness, but would welcome people to feedback.
