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

As my post on my emergency kit was so popular I thought I'd share with you another "kit" of sorts - my insomnia and sleep kit. I've suffered with insomnia now for many years. 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!!

Cake baking and decorating is one of my loves, I love … Continue reading An unusual request to put the crafty back into the CraftyInsomniac

Every girls dream right??? Not mine, I'm the first one to admit that I've … Continue reading I know you’re going to get bored of me but I wanted to share a purchase with you!!!
So it struck me again this afternoon what a mass of contradictions I really am!! I was sat doing a jigsaw puzzle (another one of the things that eds has curtailed, but more about that later!!) watching first the end of Le Mans 24 hour race and following that one of the top gear specials!!! … Continue reading A mass of contradictions!!!
As always happens with my blog posts I started thinking about one post and ended up writing something totally different!! Anyone who knows me knows that I have a rather strange relationship with my dad. He is a real grumpy old man and moans constantly about me and my things (equipment for my disability and … Continue reading Fathers day.
