Help. Not sleeping.

Posted: 24/08/2014 at 10:06

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.


Wish list for seed and plant swap

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.

Talking om memories, I forgot to mention the seeds, thank you, I have already sowed them, how tall are they please. 

I am also drowning in nasturtium seeds.

Perhaps you are like me Bekkie in the way that you just cant waste a seed or plant, I really have to  be firm and only pot on what I need, usually got 100 of everything, then just cant throw them away.

By the way, dont put the old nasturtium plants in the compost bin, I have them springing up everywhere!

Two hours sleep is enough for me most nights, quick power nap then up, I quite often post here at 2 -3 am.

I do drink loads of coffee, but that makes no difference because when I am really tired, I sleep

I am on the go all day, rarely sit down, but thats the way I like it.

I look on sleep as a waste of time, I could be catching up on reading, knitting, blogging.

The worst thing to do is worry about it, just get up and do something you love to do.Margaret Thatcher functioned very well on only 3 to 4 hours a night.
