Asleep on my feet tired, I cannot doze off.

I fell onto the bed at around 5.15 this afternoon, and lay with my eyes closed determinedly listening to music, but I never really dozed off. I remained immobile for a couple of hours and daydreamed in lieu of sleep, which seemed to help a little.

Since then I have tried various bits and pieces on the PC and telly to keep me entertained, but only with partial success. In the meantime I have become steadily tireder. I am hoping the shower I just had, plus the cup of chocolate Ovaltine I have here and a couple of Nytol just swallowed will do the trick.

If not, I'm out of ideas, short of a general anaesthetic.

Towards the end of this week, I shall be off to Shropshire and then the coast for a total of ten days over Easter week.I NEVER have difficulty sleeping within earshot of the sea. I just have to wait that long...

And thus ends an otherwise splendid weekend: not with a bang, but a yawn, to paraphrase.

Sea, rivers, trains - they all make me sleep..I was going to say like a baby but as I was a very noisy, somewhat challenging baby, that doesn't work, but you see what I mean.

I have a CD of just rain sounds, that helps in emergencies. Very hard to find that was, I mean without ghastly plinky music spoiling it.

There's a New Age place down St Martin's Lane that may stock something like that, hidden away between the sticks of incense, Buddhas, Ghaneshs, ju-jus, gew-gaws, trinkets and totems.

I slept quite well in the end, dozing off sometime shortly after 1am, but not for long enough. My reserves of sleep were not properly restocked this weekend like they usually are.

"Tireder"? You must be completely zonked, Bryan.

3/10. See me.
