OK so I know the title probably isn't the biggest draw, and it's rather long!! As you know, from my new years posts, I don't make resolutions or set goals so that couldn't be the title!! I thought however that as I've got a number of crafts I'd like to either master, try or continue … Continue reading Catheter update and a few crafty want to do’s for this year!!
I've never enjoyed new years celebrations, it's all about looking back and reminiscing about what's happened in the year and looking forward to the next and all that will bring. Unfortunately for me it's always been a long list of things to remind me of all that I don't have and a look forward to … Continue reading New year’s eve
OK so as far as Christmas is concerned my blog has been slightly absent! I have written about my Christmas card tradition, and hinted at other things but I haven't actually done anything really Christmassy. Now this is in part because I've had a huge problem getting into the Christmas spirit. I did my shopping, … Continue reading Merry Blogmas!!

I started with one or two nights a month, then it became a week. That then crept up until it was … Continue reading My insomnia and sleep kit!!
I found out yesterday (when looking on a few incontinence support websites) that September is urology awareness month. Now I have to admit I am one of those people who have got a bit of "support this months" fatigue. There doesn't seem to be a month without some sort of charity awareness being supported. But … Continue reading Urology awareness and a very frustrating morning!!
Well today I've been getting back to being a bit more crafty, it's always hard for me now to admit that I cannot do as much crafting as I would like to but with a lot of adaptation I can still do some things. Cake baking and decorating is one of my loves, I love … Continue reading An unusual request to put the crafty back into the CraftyInsomniac
When I wrote earlier I didn't expect to be writing again so soon.........but here I am!!! I forgot when I posted that although I'm geeky in many ways (liking Star Trek and sci-fi ) I forgot that ďoesnt extend to technology. My total ineptitude when it comes to technology lead to me merrily sharing away … Continue reading You wait a whole year for a blog post and two come along at once!!
After trying and failing a couple of times now I am again hoping to make this work. I feel deflated that no one read my previous posts but lets hope!! Anyway I have thought long and hard about what topics to cover especially in my first few posts, I thought about doing an A to … Continue reading Is there anybody out there??
