Evening all. It's been a busy weekend including OH choosing his new car (30th birthday treat) ...
... we'll be lving off tap water and baked beans for a long time but he's genuinely excited by the one he's chosen.
I'm looking to find a second job to boost my savings (after all it would be nice to get married eventually; my engagement ring has actually worn out!!) Something that won't place too much of a demand on my brain as my new shiny job is certainly getting it's money worth from my brain cells.
Part time pillow tester would be nice.
For those of you who struggle to sleep; due to the chronic pain that made every movement an intense struggle / brain injury related depression / and tendency to have insomnia BEFORE the other factors were thrown at me I started to listen to the same programme on the radio (recorded to ensure it was always to hand and is usually The News Quiz from Radio 4) or talking book (Simon Sharmas history of Britain was a hit for years).
IF I didn't fall asleep I had company (even aced a few pub quizzes with my knowledge of the dissolution of the monestries)
IF I did fall asleep because it was talking the gentle rhyme didn't seem to wake me
IF I did wake up (which always happens due to the nature of rolling over in bed + pain) it would still be playing and there for me to concentrate on
I have a speaker under my pillow so it doesn't disturb my partner and it has helped me immensely.
Of course it won't help everyone. But it's worth a shot.
