      Good morning everyone. Great to see the site up and running again. Could not get on at all yesterday evening. Work for me so quick check in, need to beat the school traffic.

      Have a great week all.

      Morning waves to all.
      Just a very quick one as the decorator's arriving shortly. Luckily just the stairs and landing so I've got downstairs to myself.
      Couldn't get on yesterday evening at all
      @mollyka............I've tried many OTC sleepy time tablets so will give my results later.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.

      Re: September Army Thread

      All in my humble opinion
      Sominex..........knocks you out and you feel groggy and lethargic all the next day and with me the day after
      Nytol (herbal).............chuck them in the bin.
      Nytol........see Sominex.
      Melatonin..............did nothing.
      Best one I've found Boots own brand Sleepeze..............take one not two (two is too many and has the same effect as Sominex)
      Most doctors are loath to prescribe sleeping pills especially if you've had a history of alcohol abuse.

      I do use a hypnosis cd I loaded on to my old phone. Glenn Harold.........at first his voice irritates the life out of you, but it works for me.

      My GP did say with all the years of drinking that my sleeping will skewed and it will and can get back to normal. The sleep you're getting now is pure and restful even if its just 3/4 hours.

      @byebyebridgetjones............soo happy you gave that a swerve. I actually feel sorry for her but you made the right decision.

      In other news, Jenny's back to school today and her anxiety has gone through the roof. The kids start tomorrow.
      She's not doing the Great North Run this year as its on her birthday so she's giving it a miss. She's 33. Where did the years go.

      @satz123............I love anagrams. I've played word games for years.

      Joe got those Sleepeeze for me in boots.
      They said they were the same as Nytol..anyway yeah I just take 1 and they seem to help... I have headphones in a headband I sleep with them on with audio book on all night- sleep through most of it - rinse and repeat the next night...a chapter lasts weeks?!!!

      Does your GP think your sleep could recover even after all those years of sobriety ?? ( major congrats on 10+ years btw!!)

      Ooh ta for the congrats Have to pinch my self now and again. I still keep in mind that the saying............' I haven't come across a situation yet'

      She never said. Some do and some don't I suppose.

      I've always been a bad sleeper (is bad the right word???) even as a baby. So the 'sleeping like a baby' saying for me would be she woke up every 20 minutes.

      Ashamed to say I've never been to Wales. Although it could be on the cards. The friend that I found from junior school lives in Cornwall and met up with 40 odd years after I last saw her...........it might be a meet up point. She's up in the NE next month so we'll get something sorted.
      Unless you're a millionaire and can get a train including several changes..........or I could wait for my bus pass .

      Another quicky checker inner.
      Off to the eye specialist on a cancellation. Every test under the sun and a new script for drops. That'll be 360 big ones please....better than going blind.

      How's it going Tony?

      GW is probably uploaded in time for me to watch Sat morning after you JC. The most LOVELY episode this last one gone. End of summer for you all. That feature garden was just divine. And the girl who grew cut flowers on her allotment.

      Molly, but for the grace of God go all of us, that's for sure.
      If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

      Re: September Army Thread

      Thought Id better get on her early, couldnt check in last night

      Your poor cousin Bridge, do you think she will ever see sense? I think we all have a someone close still in the thick of it, some more obvious than others. Although my lot are jumping on the wagon one by one (seems like I wasnt the only one with the gene!). Others have cut back a lot, but still go on benders, but not as bad as before - hard to tell if they are 'cured' or didnt need to be.. Can you have a heavy drinker who curtails his drinking?

      When are you off to Greece @satz123?
      Jenny will be grand @JackieClaire, try not to worry. 1st day back with the kids is always slightly terrifying. Killer shoes and strong coffee..

      Just back myself after 4 weeks. It was grand, nice to back to a proper routine. Cant understand what I did all day for the past few weeks, but not one job on my list got ticked off! We had nice dinners
