In the bedroom

Something I used to do in bed, a lot, isn't happening so much any more.
No I'm not talking about sex, that is usually reserved for the sofa or the kitchen table.
I'm talking about sleep, I've got into a really bad habit of falling asleep for about an hour, then waking up and staying awake for hours.
I often only fall asleep an hour before it's time to get up and then I feel tired all day.

That is awful and I also have period like this, in fact, I think a lot of people do. It's very stressful as you know you need to sleep and can do little about it when you don't fall asleep. I find it's best to get up, read, have a cup of tea, watch TV (I record things I enjoy so that I can watch something in the night if I'm wide awake, the programmes about lost masterpieces that were on recently, Escape to the Country, M Portillo's railway journeys, the canal progs with Scales and West. And while I don't advocate taking drugs to help you sleep, as I have a lot of arthritic pain, I find a paracetamol or an ibuprofen if I can't sleep because of the pain helps send me to sleep. But a milk drink and a book might be the answer, and putting, and not doing emailing or looking at a computer screen just before you go to bed.

I usually read when I can't sleep, sometimes I get up but usually I stay in bed.

It is cosier in bed, especially if you can read your Kindle without disturbing your L&M x

I haven't had the problem lately, but when my Mum was sick I had trouble sleeping. I think it was because my mind was too busy thinking about things. When I did have trouble sleeping I read my kindle or listened to music. It sounds weird but sometimes I just daydream and make up stories in my head :)

Heart sore and head sore

I'm heart sore for the lovely John at Going Gently, he is grieving for the end of his marriage. I'm head sore from trying to deal ...
