If you happen to be in the area, perhaps the Country Fair held at Chatsworth House this Friday (29th Aug) would be a better proposition.

runner beans, healthy plants, few beans!

...and a very warm welcome to the forum, Mel.

As often happens the author of the thread started two identical threads at the same time...hence this one has been lying  dormant for a little while. The other one answered the query to their satisfaction, I believe.

Hi, Pauline...I was going to say earlier, re working shifts (particularly night shifts) I think my inability to sleep during the day was down to anxiety. I was always concerned about turning-up for work feeling tired, as peoples lives were in my hands and feeling drowsy was always a worry.

Having said that, my company were always reasonable and would rather I stayed at home (never did) if I had a bad day....with no deduction of salary.

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.

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!
