Thoughts of a restless sleeper
Remember sound is louder at night. That dog may not be next door ,despite the noise, but several streets away.
Tossing and turning is not the ideal way to waken your bed mate. They may want to sleep a little longer, especially at 3am.
Counting sheep will not work if you are a spinner. You will be trying to identify the breeds going by.
In extreme circumstances you may even go so far as to work out the length of the wool staple.
Neither going to bed early nor late will help.
If you are having a restless night then face it , it is your turn.
Pain killers do not work as quickly at night. Maybe they are a daytime medication and need their sleep at night also.
Would a hot drink help?
We then go back to the bed mate. Will he or she appreciate the request for a cuppa?
Will they want to sit up and talk while you drink said cuppa, and while you enumerate the reasons for not sleeping?
And, after all this tossing and turning ,
there is always tomorrow.
