Can’t sleep………………………………………………..

I can’t sleep.  Not quite an unusual occurrence as it may seem. My daughter brought it on tonight, she is 11 years old and has hit puberty with a wallop, i don’t like her at the moment sad to say, she is nasty, foul mouthed, contrary, if i say it’s black she say’s it’s white, parents every where will understand. She also has problems sleeping, it all stems from her having to sleep in our room until she was 6, our house is on the small side, 3 adults and 3 kids and only 3 bedrooms, until we went up into the loft. The boys are up there and she now has the box room, read ‘cant swing a cat room’ and she has tried! I think she misses the company, tonight she went to bed at 9pm and was still not settled at 11.30 so now i can’t sleep because of worrying about her, it’s school next week, big school, that doesn’t help. I worry she is going to be sleep deprived in senior school like she was all through year 6, it affects her work and now she is going into serious study she needs her whits about her, it’s not time to be messing up, so i worry and i cant sleep. I have fibromyalgia and one of the awful components to it, for me, is not having the greatest sleep patterns, so i have to be careful of stress at bedtime, so tonight i cant sleep. I am stressed because my mum has cancer, my aunt has just passed away, my husband is not well, my kids are, well kids, so i cant sleep. Grrrrrrr it’s 3.40am and i cant sleep! So, i write. ………….. I went for a ‘wander with Chris’ on Tuesday evening, we went down to the beach and had a walk around the marine lake, well a bit of it as i got cold. We went so i could take some photo’s of the sunset, we have great sunset’s here, legendary, and Tuesday’s was golden!

Funny how a good sunset bring’s out the photographer’s, i want to consider myself a promising and talented photographer, i think i am right in saying it, I’ve sold stuff, been in magazines etc and i have put together quite a good kit and know how to use it 🙂 and when i go out, camera slung around my neck, i laugh like a loon inside as i walk around, past other camera slung people and we are all trying hard not to scope each others kit out, is their’s better than mine, look mine is more sophisticated, wish my lens was that big and you can see them out of the corner of your eye doing the same to you as they walk nonchalantly past you. I’d love to see what their photo’s look like, are they better or worse? Who know’s because no one ever stop’s to chat, they just scuttle on past with a quick glance to make sure their camera is better than your’s. sigh………………… Wednesday Chris and i wandered over to Hilbre Island, i haven’t been there in year’s, it was a killer walk it really hurt but it was worth the pain,

i am processing the photo’s and i think i have some good one’s, one’s that please me, finger’s crossed. So really i should be able to sleep, now i can guarantee i will loose half the day catching up, vicious is this circle.

  1. This too shall pass….Years ago we had three daughters in a 12×60 mobile home for about 3 years….They each had a very-very-very small bedroom! But we made it…Sorry about your illness, your mom’s cancer and your hubby’s medical problems. That’s a lot on your plate, yet you manage to make beautiful images that come from the heart.

    1. Thank you, i’m feeling sorry for myself, i know we dont have it that bad, but i love sleep 😦 and its so early Chris has woken up, well actually its late and Chris always wakes up early for work lol if you get my meaning x

    1. Thanks Mark, i have been told that by the time the kid reaches 19 she will be ok, only 8 years to go 😀 I am hoping that going to school will help her sleep pattern as she should be so tired after that she just falls asleep, though it is a big hope. Oh and i am still getting your posts with coding instead of pictures.

  2. I can so relate to the insomnia but lately I’m accepting it as perhaps my body telling me I don’t actually need as much sleep as I thought I did. That makes me feel a LOT better.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend, G

    following your blog now! 🙂

    1. Thanks Geraldine, yes i can go to sleep later but i still find i wake later, so i must need as much sleep as i can get 😀 the kid will grow out of it eventually. The sun is shining its a great day, have a good weekend too. x
