I am too tired to go to bed !!!

My Christmas shopping is just about finished, only 2 more presents to get.  

I want to get a new siggy made but I just love this one so much, maybe I should get just the person who made it for me to update the photos and leave it - what do you think ?

This is the first time in years I am actually looking forward to Christmas and I am getting quite excited.  

I had a bit of a splurge at Big W and bought some new tinsel, decorations and lights (told you I love to shop) and I just love the re-usable window stickers and have got a great collection of those now.

About not being able to sleep:  

A psychologist friend of mine has told me that if you are unable to sleep or had your sleep disrupted then you should get up and do something for at least 90 minutes.  Not just watching TV but do some ironing or some other activity.

Apparently gives your brain an adjustment and is better ready for sleep.

I have tried it and found it to work.

#17 Lucky Mama

Posted 10 November 2006 - 01:45 AM

I think I am almost caked out!

There did use to be a nightowls thread but it fizzled out as it wasnt that popular in the end, I am happy for it to resume if anyone would like, if I am not on to start it working nights anyone else is welcome to do so

#22 Lucky Mama

Posted 10 November 2006 - 01:50 AM

Sammi you can either pm a mod, or me being a mod, or post in the mods board or just simply start a thread each night

Nightowls #1, sometimes they will go really well and sometimes you wont get a single solitary response, there are still some of the original nightowls floating around somewhere too!

#23 hootymcboob

Posted 10 November 2006 - 01:53 AM
