Insomnia cure

Whilst lying awake the other night, I became bored with counting sheep rolling over a cattle grid.

I came up with a more interesting alternative.

You have a patch of lawn in a sunny spot and one of those forked hand weeding things. You weed this patch. You can count the weeds if you wish.

As my weeding progressed, the weeds got weirder and weirder  ( but that's my problem).

I woke up next morning, so I must have slept.

In London. Keen but lazy.

    Does your back ache in the morning though?!? 

    Or grass stains on your PJs??

    No . I specified a sunny spot. good for warming the bones. Grass stains on PJs are not an issue for reasons I consider to be inappropriate to mention to persons who may be of a delicate constitution.

    Quite right... Verdun might have nightmares!

    Hope the rain stayed away for anyone trying that out last night.

    Well you might be able to sleep but will the rest of us laying here imagining you out there in just your socks delicately pulling up the weeds risking sun burn on your bum!!

    Then you can imagine me doing it in a  pink, quilted nylon housecoat, fluffy mules, pop socks,  and a rather fetching scarf tied turban-style around my spikey  rollers.
