Help. Not sleeping.

Posted: 24/08/2014 at 13:51

You're right Bekkie, my OH can sleep watching tv, noisy music, adverts, all sorts, I cant wake him, get him in bed and he is moaning that I have a tiny dim light bulb to read by and its keeping him awake.

I now use the tablet to read with paper background set to black and the writing very dim, Oh this sleep problem affects us all in some way.

I have found it, I cant see anywhere else selling this though, when they say green fleece they mean 'green'as in friendly.

There is one that looks very pale green, i have written to them to check.

Meanwhile,  I have just found the new Coopers one, it wasnt in the catalogue I used.

I cant get the actual page for this but try copy and pasting this

Pleased you got some sleep Pauline.

I think that if you can talk openly about it you then realise that there are a lot of people in the same boat so you dont think you are alone.

I slept quite well last night as I shifted a load of granite chippings around the drive and laid the membrane neat,was absolutely whacked!

In the early spring through to summer I always take a note pad to bed then when I am awake worrying that I might forget to do something, I write it down, another worry less.

Mine dont seem to have any spare growth at the base, just the flowering spikes, maybe I am mistaken about the seed heads?

Are you in a position to take an aftefnoon nap? Not if you have to work though.

I am not always that bad, as I said, every so often I just hit the pillow and sleep, but if I dont, I just get up and do something.

I have tried all the remedies that are suggested, just dont fight it anymore.

If its them I am afraid the green stuff is netting, the fleece is the jolly ole white

I have just bought the geese and herons to go round my new pond. They have some good stuff at reasonable prices, i use them quite often.

But you cant beat William Hartnell and cardboard daleks!

My son was so scared he would hold a cushion to his face and peep out.

I think he's still the same.

SGL could I have some peachy and some pink ones please.  I have white.

I have potted Bekkies Yucca in 5 inch pots and put them in a sheltered spot in the garden. I will give them a little before planting out.
