This evening I shall mostly be sleeping. [Oct. 5th, 2004|10:54 am]

I would have slept better if it weren't for the damn telesales bastard intent on being my very own personal wake-up call this morning.


As it was, I ran round with Shauny yesterday and took lots of damn good photos - had a FANTASTIC afternoon (spicy beanburgers in Jakes, pot of tea for two in Cafe Rouge, makeover in Dingles...), then spent the evening developing/processing the film we'd shot and doing contact sheets/initial prints, and then a full night shift from 10pm till six-am, so by the time I got to bed this morning (7am) I was thoroughly knackered...

Then those telesales/insurance BASTARDS kept ringing me on the hour every hour from 9am onwards... I gave them a few choice words when I got up on the third call at 10:30.

I am now sat here, nearly 11am, off to college for a film lecture in a minute - had three and a half hours sleep, and when I get back (round 3pm most likely), I am GOING BACK TO BED AND UNPLUGGING THE PHONE FOR THREE HOURS!!!


(mehdi_caps you are so astute lol!)

Vent! vent, girl, like you never vented before!

OB calling is soul destroying - almost as bad as door-to-door (i've done both) buth the folks that work OB get paid danger money for calling folks before 12 or after 7.. so next time you get one, VENT UR SPL33N like u've n3v3r v3nt3d b4..

ahem. sorry. been reading too many webocmics this morning.

Valerian root or argent. nit. exctract caps might help you. but i'm sure you have more LJ watchers that know more about alternative remedies to help you relax and get good sleep for the length of time you do get to sleep....

sweet dreams...xx

I don't have any trouble getting to sleep - I'm worn out enough as it is by the time I get there... It's the staying asleep I'm having problems with...

Ahh valerian... Nice in tea, doesn't work if you smoke it lol!!

my best way for a good nites sleep is, i have a very large peice of Black Tourmaline that sits on my bed head, this helps by calming the mind and relieving stress as well as protecting from psychic attack and repeling negitive energy, then i always have a cup of RedBush tea while sat up in bed and then put a single drop of pure lavendar oil either side of my pillow, and i find i always sleep really well. plus the lavendar keeps the bugs and creapy crawlies away..lol

though all this goes out the window if ive been drinking, then i just flop into bed and pass out..lol

another good way of getting to sleep is practice making babies for a few hours until you cant move anymore, that always works really well too..LOL :)

but always remember to turn off or unplug the phone reguardless of anything else..lol

I keep a piece of Amethyst under my pillow, and have a lavender 'beddy bear' lol... Also a large black velvet curtain alongside the bed to make a 'cave'. Nothing short of ripping the phone out of the wall will fix this though...

The only way I can properly sleep is a few glasses of red wine - but then the dreams that come are pretty disturbing lol!!

Redbush tea - I have some of that... Does that make you sleepy?

Telephone Preference Service

Register on that page. Believe me, it cut the number of pesky telesales calls down dramatically. We still get one or two now and again, but nowhere near as many.

Sleep well :)

Thanks for that Vim:)) Mother rang it this morning... Apparently it takes 28 days to take 'maximum' effect... So I'm hoping the four calls which woke me between 4:30pm and 8:30pm this evening were just telesales and not my mates trying to reach me...

At least, if it was friends ringing, they'd ring my mobile, right?


It's 8:30pm now, I just woke up (again) - have no clue what day it is properly, can't believe it's Wednesday tommorrow and I'm off to work in half an hour;)

If it was Justin from The Carphone Warehouse calling about TalkTalk, I'm *SO* sorry! :(

I didn't mean to do it, honestly!

Don't worry - it was American Life or something - some kind of insurance policy:/
