David, I worked permanent nights, for 12 years, ending in 2012, thought I had got away with the change. Maybe it's caught up with me now.

 

You have my sympathy, Pauline. I could never get used to sleeping in the daytime...but of course it wasn't helped by changing shifts every week.

Help. Not sleeping.

I used (before I retired) work shifts...6am-2pm, 2pm-10pm and 10pm-6am....alternating weekly, and for anyone who hasn't had the pleasure, it's a killer!

Smashing shot, OL  I've been trying to work out what butterfly/moth it is...maybe a moth I think.

My heart goes out to anyone who finds it difficult to sleep.

I while ago I had the misfortune to suffer from a really severe case of nasal polyps....this resulted in my having to breath through my mouth for most of the time. Whist this was tolerable during the day, it did present big problems while trying to sleep ie dry mouth and awful bouts of dreaming I was suffocating or drowning when my mouth closed.....the upshot being that I had weeks & weeks of sleepless nights.

Finally, I was so desperate, I paid privately for the operation to have them removed.

 I can well understand why some sadist dreamt up the idea of using sleep deprivation as a form of torture.

Pleased to hear you had a better night, Pauline.

David what variety are they?   atb DD

 

Well there lies the problem, DD.....they are Mammoth onions and consequently about a quarter the size they should be.

I'm not too disappointed though as I picked them up very cheap (£1 a tray) as end of season, tiny plants.

Hard luck, Fishy....it's so  annoying when they throw away a 2-0 lead.

"Balotelli is unpredictable David but will likely score some important goals for you."

Well I suppose that could have been said of Suarez. I just could never stand the lad when he was with Man C.

Said I was stingy, didn't i?  David likes those ready madeup pots from m and s etc.  they look pretty with moss and all, but I think they are reeely dear.  

I beg yours  I made those up, myself!

I still think usinmg bulb fibre would be advisable...apart from charcoal, it contains other stuff such as oyster shell and remember homemade compost would include unwanted fertilizer.

Oh, and IMHO growing your own is also reeely dear...although there are certain advantages.
