After my knee surgery I have been having a terrible time getting any sleep as I spoke about in the previous blog but after thinking I’d finally combated it by getting some sleep over the past few nights last night took the biscuit,

I went to bed at 11pm and I was still awake at 1am, then the clock said 2am, 3am, 4, 5, 6…at 7am I got up and gave the hounds their breakfast, they on the other hand snored their way happily through the night, I went back up to bed and still couldn’t nod off…I have no idea why the night was so bad for me but it got me thinking about my childhood sleep.

I was frequently spanked by the nanny, usually for backchat or being cheeky, it was done always after a bath so my bottom was warm and supple and then I was sent to bed….I would sleep like a baby.

No, I’m not asking for a spanking before bedtime even though I’m sure I’d get a lot of offers 🙂

So tonight I shall go to bed with a cup of Horlicks and see if a malty hot drink will send me off to a deep childhood sleep.
