Well it has cooled way down outside finally and it is clear as a Bell outside! It will be hot as blazes again today!!!

Nice thing is I was outside at 4:30 AM trying to get cooled off and what a beautiful site.. There were millions of stars out so bright and clear.. so beautiful! OH my I see it all the time but it never fails to astound me how pretty the night sky is. The dippers were so clear and all the others too.. there was not a cloud to be seen.. no fog no overcast sky, just clear beautiful sparkling glittery skies for as far as the eye could see! Gorgeous!

I went to an insomniacs support meeting a while ago, dunno what went on there, so I can't pass on any tips, it was so boring I fell asleep.  [:o)]

I have just come back from the pub. Husband in Boston. Nothing to go to bed for. Eyes popping out of head with tiredness. Can't be arsed to go upstairs and go to sleep, I will probably wake up at 4.30 as usual and then not be able to drop off again. Up at 6.45 to start the school runs. I need a holiday.

*From The Desk Of Sheepy*


Celebrity status has demanded that for now, Mr Sheepy's posts in this thread will be written by his personal assistant before being authorised by his agent. Sheepy is currently away opening a new convenience store and will then be fastracked via first class to No 47b, Station Road, where he will cut the ribbon to open  Mr & Mrs Jones's new cat flap for the their cat Reginald.

A report out today suggests that a meal of lettuce and turkey a few hours before bed can help you sleep.

Personally I find a few pints or a whiff of the barmaid's apron does the trick for me.

Well tonight I daren't go to bed because there is a strange fly like creature in my bedroom. It is long thin and brown. As I am really allergic to fly bites I'm shakin' in my boots. Could someone come around and remove it for me so I can go to bed. Last time a horse fly bit me I couldn't walk for three days eeeeeeeek!
