Another sleepless night

Posted on Updated on

Well, once again, I can’t get to sleep, it’s half three in the morning, and I have been trying to get to sleep for the last 3 hours.  Every time I try and sleep, my mind just seems to be in overdrive, so amny thoughts going through my head.  and every time I nearly doze off, my body just sends a funny jolt from head to toe telling me to wake up, so I have finally decided to get out of bed and put on the TV.

It’s amazing what rubbish is on at this time of the morning.  About 50% of the channels are playing live casinos,  whatImage does that say for the British viewer, there must be far more gamblers around me than I thought.  I sat there for a bit and watched one of the shows, they don’t even try to make it interesting.  It was just an image of a roulette wheel going round with an occasional voice over muttering a few words, then back to the spinning wheel.  After the joy of watching that I started flicking through a few more channels, and all I found were poorly made movies and old quiz shows.

So, now I have turned over to the Karrang music channel, to watch the massive rock anthems show, which is allot better viewing, but still not captivating enough for me, which is why I decided to start typing away, just something to do, until tiredness takes over, which still doesn’t seem like it is coming any time soon.

On a slightly better note, only one day left of work this week.  I get another Saturday off, which is great, that makes two in a row, but on the other hand, after this week, I have three Saturday’s on the trot, so a few weeks of six days, but it’s a bit of overtime pay for me, which I’m going to need because I’m of on holiday again in the middle of June, and I really need to start saving up for America, in October, if I manage to save the money, and find a decent valued place to stay.

Anyway, that’s enough rambling from me, I think I may cook my dinner for tomorrow night at work so I don’t have to do it in the morning in the zombie like state I’ll be in by then if I don’t get to sleep soon.

Speak soon

Sleep Is A Challenge

Posted on Updated on

Hey Guys……


Well today’s been an awesome day.  Just been to Comic Con at the NEC in Birmingham, and once again an excellent day, bought plenty of stuff I don’t need, got to see loads of cosplay and sci-fi costumes, and it just made me feel happy to see so many friendly faces.

Anyway time for another WordPress challenge

What kind of sleeper are you? Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed, or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream?

Well I’m a very bad sleeper,  It takes along time for me to get to sleep, which is why most of my posts are done early hours of the morning, just one of the many ways to try and tire myself out.  The problem I have is my mind is always working in over drive, I mean, it Imagejust never shuts down.  There isn’t just a single thing that I’m thinking about, it is everything all at once, flying back and forth round my head all at the same time.  Whether it’s work, finance, or just a song I heard but can’t place the artist.  The only thing I have found that gets me to sleep is a few pints, just because it slows me down.

Once I’m asleep though I still have the problem of being woken up by the slightest sound, and it doesn’t help with the fact that I have the worlds loudest neighbours.

Every night my sleep is broken up, I’ll wake up several times throughout the night, which makes me feel even worse in the morning.  But the one thing that annoys me, which has happened this weekend, twice now, is when I have a day off, with plenty of time to lay in bed and catch up on my sleep, I end up waking really early and being wide awake so I have to get up.  And like tonight, I have work in the morning, and i’m still wide awake, with no chance of getting to sleep for a good few hours yet, but at the same time all I want is to lay in my bed pass out and have a nice sleep all the way through and wake up refreshed.

Anyway, enough rambling for now

Speak to you all soon…..

As I’m sat here, in my bed, still wide awake, I realize I should of been born in America.  By the time I usually fall asleep It will be about 4


AM here in the UK.  If I was in the US it would be closer to 9-10 PM which would be a fare better time of day to fall asleep.

It doesn’t help that I’m a caffeine addict, I get through multiple cups of coffee, and bottles of Pepsi Max every day.  I’ve tried sleeping pills, herbal teas, reading, but none of them seem to work.  But at least this gives me chance to draft a few Blogs and do some sketching.The problem is, I have is having a mind that wont turn off.  Whether I’m thinking about work, life, my neighbours making noise, or I’m stressed, there is always something keeping me awake.  But the one thing that really bugs me for keeping me awake is when I can’t stop thinking about Imagenot going to sleep.

So as I sit here, bored and alone I think to myself, I should of been like Sting and become another English Man in New York.
