Sometimes with new blogger things go oddly wrong.   Why my label for yesterday should read 'The Dancing Sailors' by Ann Pilling I have no idea - but I don't want to interfere as it then takes so long to wriggle out of all the new procedure - so just ignore it please.

 A nice, breezy, sunny day today and everything has dried up nicely.   I do wish the two men doing my patio had come today while everything is dry - I fear by the week end it will have rained again and everywhere will be a sloppy mess.   But after my very useful day all round yesterday today has not been as successful.   To start with, because I had been so busy all day, my mind was very active and I found sleep impossible.   At half past one this morning I got up and made myself a cup of cocoa (delicious) and sat and read for an hour. This meant that I slept in a little and as I have to be at the Hairdresser at 9am I had to rush.  Our little town is bedevilled by traffic lights at present and they were by my usual parking place, so I had to park in the market square which made my walk to the hairdressers longer than usual.  When I came out I found the walk back quite a struggle, particularly as I called in and queued to  pay my newspaper bill.   The upshot was that I called in my favourite  coffee shop for the first time since lockdown and bought a pot of my favourite coffee and a toasted teacake.  Needless to say I didn't feel like lunch so I didn't eat that until after two when I had scrambled eggs.

 Now it is almost half past four and I shall go and put my feet up and watch Antiques Road Trip and write today off to experience.   Enjoy your evening.

Your non-sleeping is similar to mine, I regularly find myself walking round the house in the middle of the night, willing myself to go back to bed and actually sleep.
Our town is now closed to traffic three days a week so that only pedestrians and cyclists can get close to the shops, seems many places are going the same way. Doesn't make life easy for people such as yourself.

I woke up far too early this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. I shall try not to go to bed too early tonight so that the same this doesn't happen tomorrow.
I hope the visit to the coffee shop fortified you for the rest of your walk back to the car, and that you have a better night's sleep tonight.

I often find myself really tired - hardly able to keep my eyes open - between 9:30 and 10:30 in the evening, but then I go and brush my teeth, wash my face etc. and get ready for bed - and am suddenly wide awake again. What most of the time gets my mind closer to sleep again is reading.
Hopefully the men working on your patio will be able to complete the work soon.

Some days are just like this messy.
The coffee and teacake sound lovely.

I suppose I am just one of the lucky ones, I sleep well every night. I feel almost guilty to say it because so many people seem to have sleep problems. It is a mystery to me.

I made myself cocoa the other night. Lovely.

Oh... those out-of sync days (and nights). I loathe them... and have more of them than not sometimes. I wish you better sleep tonight. Love, Andrea xoxo

I too am struggling to resolve the problem of needing to walk too far.

I'm sticking with the old blogger; I prefer it.

Well with Lucy barking a couple of times through the night to go out, my sleep pattern is broken but I do sleep soundly otherwise. Days come, days go, some are better than others, at the moment the winds are picking up but no rain as yet.

Thanks everyone. Super night's sleep last night - I have caught up!

I have met most of his patient testimonials on blogs and social media pages, cured of various illnesses. I contacted him with his email address to which he replied and asked me a few questions and the preparation method for which I paid, he sent me herbal medicines and with his prescription I drank herbal medicine for 21 days and the epidemics on my body were healed after concluding herbal medicine, I went for the test and my result was negative with no trace of virus in my blood. You can also be cured, contact him on his official email; or WhatsApp him on +2348167485904.

God is Good!I promised God that I would share my testimony on this website. I had all the signs of STD Virus but I was not too sure as to which one. I did a lot of online research and scared myself straight for a whole week before going to see the nurse. She took one look at my genital part and first said that it could just be the anatomy of my body, then she said it looked like genital warts and that I MAY have herpes. I was devastated. She gave me some medicine for the herpes and some cream for the warts. I was also tested for every single STD including herpes. I went home and cried searching the web for all sorts of cures for herpes and awaiting my results. I saw a post whereby Dr. ibhafidon  Blessed cured Herpes and other diseases, I copied his contGod acts out and added him on whats app via +2348152228377. The next day my test result was ready and i confirmed Herpes positive. I told Dr ibhafidon Blessed about my health problems and he assured me of cure. He prepared his herbal medicine and sent it to me. I took it for 14 days (2 weeks). Before the completion of the 14 days in which I completed the dose, the Blisters and Warts that were on my body was cleared. I went back for check-up and I was told I'm free from the virus. Dr. ibhafidon Blessed cures all types of diseases and viruses with the help of his herbal medicine. You can reach Dr. ibhafidon Blessed via his email address on ( dribhafidon96@gmail. com ) or call him on +2348152228377 and whats app him on same number for more info mail me directly on.dribhafidon96@gmail. com ..
