I can't sleep

I can't sleep. DH has decided the spare room is a better place to spend the night while I toss and turn. I'm running out of sides to turn on to. Classic Fm doesn't send me to sleep and nor does Elvis. There's  not much happening outside, just one couple walking and a lone car driving by. 

I can't sleep. I'm wide awake. I know every lump and bump in this bed and have relieved it of all the toast crumbs - well nearly all. They take some chasing. 

I can't sleep. It will soon be dawn. Right, I've done the gazing at the mobile now so I'll go for another fight with the bed. Night night.



  1. Hope you eventually managed to get to sleep.
    I do know what you mean though I have nights like that!

  2. sorry you couldn't sleep Mum, hope you managed to drift off and a have a few hours, dee xx

  3. We were kept awake by a music festival on a farm 3 miles away. Grrrrrrr. I hate lack of sleep and the festival is on for 2 more nights.
    I hope you have a better night tonight

  4. It's horrible to be awake when everyone else is asleep, and our brains never want to switch off!

  5. I went to bed at 2 am this morning and woke up at 4.45am. Still jet lagged I think after our holiday. I ended up getting up at 6 for an hour and going downstairs but did manage to get back to sleep later until 11am!!! Naughty but nice.

    There is nothing worse than being tired, but lying in bed and not being able to sleep. I often take myself off to the spare room when it happens, so as I don't disturb OH with my tossing and turning. Usually it works and I can drop off to sleep in there.

  6. P.S. Maybe you could take a nap today to catch up.

  7. My husband often has exactly the same problem, he lies there for hours sometimes trying to get to sleep. You'll hate me for it, but I'm asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow, I could sleep anywhere! Funny how we are all so different. Hope you got to sleep eventually xx

  8. My husband and I have both been fighting this problem for a couple of years - getting on in years? We nap when we can, read, check email and don't fight it. It's easier that way. Good luck!
