'Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him two lips like roses and clover...'

oh my word~my sleeping patterns are all over the place right now.
i would say that for at least three nights a week i sleep fitfully for a few hours after going to bed exhausted around 9pm. then i wake and have what my old occupational therapist in my M.E management group called 'washing machine head'!

you know that feeling of laying there in the dark and you have a million thoughts running through your head?
~the night before last i listened to my ipod until about 5am, last night i got up at 2am, made hot milk and spent an hour reading 'the forests of avalon' befor getting to sleep. to night i decided to force myself to stay awake until i am really tired~so here i sit, blogging and listening to radio 4.

i keep popping outside to see if the sky is clear for this week is the annual return of the Perseid meteor shower which will be gracing our skies this week.
i think the single one i saw at my full moon ritual was maybe an early arrival. if the skies are clear tomorrow we will be going with our friends and neighbours, mother and son pauline and layton up to the high heathland just outside the village where we will have a wonderful view.we will make sure we have water, milk, tea and biscuits and have a little party!
