Awful night

Unfortunately, that peaceful night’s sleep slipped away.  No fault of the mattress topper I hasten to add.

I kept waking up every hour as my leg was hurting.  Strangely, my body knows in the form of aches and pains when it is going to rain.  The rain was lashing at the window when I went to bed.  I need a barometer I think.  I tossed and turned and hoped for some respite but the respite never came so this morning I walked around like a zombie.  The Mhinsteir suggested that I get back to bed but I know I won’t be able to sleep.

I decided to listen to the Daily Service in bed instead.  It was only recently that I discovered that I could listen to it online as it is in long wave.  I don’t have DAB radio.   I really enjoy the service and so have been making a point to listen to it everyday.   The theme this week is Old Testament Prayers.

Oh help! I have just waved to my postman in my pyjamas!  The Mhinisteir is in a zoom meeting and so I ran (tried to anyway!) to the window to acknowledge the parcel that the Postie brought.  On my way back to bed, I decided to look at myself in the mirror!

BAD IDEA!

Monday Blues

Like Garfield, I had Monday Blues.

I was furious ( over reaction on my part!!!) with the Milkman this morning.   In order to prevent the milk from turning bad in the summer heat,  I invested in a MilkandMore cool bag.  I have been leaving it out for the milkman to put the milk bottle in it to keep the milk cool. I don’t know what came over the milkman this morning but he did not do it! The milk bottle was left on the doorstep to sun itself!!! Maybe he had the Monday Blues too!

Then I read in the papers that a certain clergy person has confessed to an inappropriate relationship with the wife of a former Archbishop of Canterbury.  Not another Church of England scandal!!!

Things got back to normal when our new mattress topper from John Lewis arrived. We have an old mattress that is uncomfortable.  We can feel the springs.  We were struggling to find a suitable mattress.  It was during this time that I read somewhere that there is an inexpensive option.  To purchase a mattress topper at a fraction of the price of a good mattress.  I did more research and found one suitable on the John Lewis website.  Unfortunately it was out of stock.  I decided to wait until it was back in stock but that day never arrived.  In the meantime, we continued struggling with our mattress.

Last week, when we got some John Lewis vouchers in the post, I decided to go ahead and finally order a mattress topper.

Here’s to a good night’s sleep!!!!
