|Old and New PC label|
This time I have a reason. My mosquito bites from last night are so painful and swollen that I just cannot get cool enough to sleep.
I have been getting up on the hour every hour since I went to bed first. Now , I have remembered ,using desperate reason, that a warm milky drink does infact help. So I am downstairs with a mug of milky decaf instant coffee. I say that rather gloomily, as I only take real coffee usually, and maybe only one a day. I have given up my strong black coffee habit now, after years of caffeine abuse,as I try to keep my BP down. Milky instant is in another realm, one of 1950's coffee pot Camp the coffee brewed or rather assembled ,by my now aged parent. So it is a comfort food almost, and it does seem to get me back to sleep if decaf. I used to love the Camp Coffee bottle, the old one that is, with the sikh Servant holding a tray on which was a bottle of Camp, on which you could see the label of the Camp bottle, with a label etc etc. I know I have blogged on this before!
I have done some light Insomnia reading. I definitely want to go on a course offered by the East Riding College in their new prospectus leading to a Diploma in either Trowel or Wood occupations, or machine Competancy. All the work on the Crown Construction Site next to my home has fired me with enthusiasm for new skills of the building site sort. When I am older and grayer and not full of sleep I want to be pushed to a building site and left there to watch for the odd hour.
If I did not still share a double bed I would watch TV in it at this moment.
I have just remembered it is already Saturday and my beloved Wallender has given way to my equally enjoyable Montalbano, which I will watch in bed with subtitles at 9pm. Only 18hours to go.
