Hello lurkers, how lovely to see you.
Soup Dragon I have enough cake to tempt all our lurkers out for a month! Help yourself and please do stay and chat if you feel able.

I'm still waiting for the tardy sleep fairy, I'm not getting up I'm too tired to be sensible!

Yes, the sleep fairy didn't get to me until about 5 in the morning but I'm up and about.  I feel I'm not being sensible in getting up though!  Does this mean I'm going to have to go for a run on my own?

Morning all. Thanks for the cake Solb. 

Lovely to hear from you Mick, not seen much of you around lateley. Hows Phil? 

Sorry the sleep fairy has been slacking in sleep duties. Its one of the worst things and I used to dread going to bed. Would spend an hour nodding off then wake up at 3.30. Thankfully things a lot better now and I'd hate to go back to that. I've cut out caffeine apart from my first cup of tea in a morning, I've managed to acquire a taste for redbush tea that has sleep properties and I can reccommend a great book

say goodnight to insomnia

Nope I definitely need to run, is it ok if I plod out in a few hours? I'll still do my bit honest

All this talk about running........ I suppose I ought to get my kit ready and head out. I'll feel better afterwards. Thanks for the inspiration.

I think I'd better go sooner rather than later.  Just another round of toast needed first.  Then about another six excuses before I finally make it!  I will make it though.

Ooo thanks for the book recommendation I'll have a look. I don't tend to read self help type books but useful tips on managing insomnia sound really helpful. Got to be worth a look, I get frustrated being given the same 4 or 5 over and over; warm bath, hot milky drinks, tightening then relaxing muscles etc. I'm sure they do work for some people but if someone is asking the question they've probably already tried and failed at a night time routine etc (overtired and grumpy? Me?)

Running? It's 3 weeks since I've run anywhere properly. I want to run.
I want cake, and sleep and time and zzzzzz

I normally avoid self help books too. I saw this one in a charity shop for 20p so it had to be worth a go and its the best 20p I've ever spent. Its based on propper research to not quirky.

Breakfast first, then a run with my husband. Soon.  Honest, soon.

Actually I was thinking of suggesting that the forum should be renamed to 'Mental illness and running and cake'.  I''ll have a run on your behalf today then By eck.
