Re: Late Hours : Today and Everyday
Carol, Barry, on a more serious note, I don't sleep much at all. Usually go to bed about 2am and have to be up to prepare my wife's medication each morning at 8am. This means getting up about an hour prior to that. These last two weeks I have been watching the cricket from Sri Lanka starting at 4am. This morning's match was well worth watching (if you like cricket). The real serious point I wish to make is, although I sometimes feel tired, all I require is 5 minutes shuteye. I just cannot lie in bed. As soon as I awake, I have get up. Not always been this way just over the last 20 years or so. I don't need sleep. Yes, my wife and I have separate rooms. She has a serious heart condition as she lost 75% of the organ (yes three quarters of it) when she had a heart attack 10 years ago and is fitted with nine stents. She has also had a brian tumor (Tolosa Hunt) about the same time. Neither of us look our age and she is full of fun and I love her to bits. I know I can be flippant which will annoy some. Put that down to not dwelling on my misfortune as I don't think I have had any compared to others. Born before the second world war, lived in the worst slums around in Gateshead as a youngster. I now feel that I have it all with my wife, widowed daughter who lives just a few miles away - and two fine grandsons. We all play clarinets (wife excepted). I have had my jab and look forward to more fun on this site - or until I get slung off.
