Today’s host for Blogfest 2012 is Susan at Today’s Working Woman. The writing prompt for today is “When was the last time you couldn’t sleep and why? What was the reason for not sleeping? What did you do to overcome it?”
I had insomnia trying to think what to write for this topic! No, only kidding!
I never have any problems getting to sleep at home, although I sometimes have problems waking up! Even away from home, I can usually sleep well, as long as the bed’s not too hard or too soft.
Once I’m asleep, I always say the world could end and I wouldn’t know it. I’ve slept through thunderstorms, gales, rain battering against the window – and I didn’t even wake up one night when my house was burgled. Actually, I’m quite glad about that. If I HAD heard any sounds from downstairs, I’d probably have had a heart attack from sheer fright. Fortunately he/they didn’t venture upstairs or I really would have had a heart attack! The police said afterwards they were looking for cheque books and cheque cards, and as I’d left my handbag downstairs, that was all they took. Inconvenient, but not life-threatening!
The only time I recall having ‘insomnia’ was when I was sharing a hotel room with a friend who started to snore the minute she dozed off – and continued to snore for the rest of the night! I lost count of the times I trotted across to the other bed in the room to poke or shake her. The snoring stopped until I got back into my own bed, and then started again!
