I've often wonderful what time the last post is made and what time the next first post occurs.
Are the Gransnet forums open 24/7 ?

They seem to be Rosannie. I've been up since 5 but only just logged in to see if any other larks are up and about. Surely I'm not the only one?

I'm here Gagagran and often am but rarely post before about 7:30. I usually "kindle " until then.

Woke an hour ago but have been putting washing on, making coffee, trying to identify a mos...

Morning, folks! brew

Did you manage it bags? I love cushions of moss and am aware that there are lots of varieties but the only one I could identify is sphagnum moss!

thatbags Fri 21-Aug-15 06:42:07

I'm not sure, gaga, but I think I'm a lot closer than I was yesterday. I'm going to consult another book later and if that doesn't help, I've a bryologist lined up to whom I can send a sample.

I arrived about 6.15 this morning. I often post after midnight as I lay in bed with my Kindle before going to sleep

Good Morning Vietnam UK! Gransnet is open all hours. (How I loved Ronny Barker!) I post at all sorts of hours that must seem very strange to UK Gransnetters (the majority) because I live in New Zealand – for those who don't know, that's a small group of relatively small islands on the edge of the world. When I lived in the UK, I also posted at odd hours because I don't sleep very well.

It's happening again! Using AIBU! (Yes, I know it doesn't really matter)

Grannyknot Fri 21-Aug-15 08:54:33

Morning! GN is "open all hours" as it is on t'internet.

I have a business conference call at 9 a.m. and will be in the "bed-office" - luckily it's not on Skype!

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 21-Aug-15 09:22:07

And I thought this was going to be a thread about who could stay alive the longest! [disappointed]

Grannyeggs Fri 21-Aug-15 09:52:10

Well whoever it is jingle they won't be able to boast about it to the rest of us!!

Rosannie Fri 21-Aug-15 10:38:30

Surely people don't boast on here!
It's very interesting to see such a variety of posting 'habits'.

Some nights I have a problem sleeping so come down and make some toast and tea and go online.
On another forum that I belong to there used to be someone (male) who was an abrasive character, and worked in the antipodes so came online at about 2am and that was rather awkward.
That forum has a facility that you could see who else was online. I don't think Gransnet has that. Otherwise you could have some cosy chats smile

ps perhaps we should have an insomniacs thread.

Granny23 Fri 21-Aug-15 14:15:26

We used to have a thread specifically for 'night owls'. Being up in the night often with 'Restless leg', I was a regular contributor, along with other insomniacs and a variety of Gransnetters from other continents. Thanks to great medication I am no longer wandering around in the middle of the night but really valued the opportunity to chat when I needed it.

Perhaps time to start another 'Out of Hours' Thread?

Granny23 Fri 21-Aug-15 14:16:16

X posts, Tricia grin

Rosannie Fri 21-Aug-15 14:26:41

An all night thread would be good for all those of us who don't sleep well. Sometimes you just want to know that there is someone else out there!

BlackeyedSusan Tue 25-Aug-15 19:47:01

I would have been posting at 2.30 am last night if the police helicopter had stayed around much longer. No chance of sleep with that about. And I have just read the perimenopause info... would explain a few things.

Stansgran Tue 25-Aug-15 20:04:08

I was up at fivish but didn't want to post until mick had called the reveille. By then I'd spilt my coffe and shampooed the bit of the carpet.

Judthepud2 Tue 25-Aug-15 20:50:31

Good idea, an out of hours thread! I often wander at night due to sleeplessness. It would be good to share.

rubylady Wed 26-Aug-15 03:01:51

Aha! Beat you all! It's going on for 3 am now and I'm just about thinking about bed. It is lovely at this time though, all quiet, I love it. Saying that I do try to sleep earlier but it won't happen. I only get about 5 hours when I do sleep so going to bed now, I will still be up for about half 8.

Night night (maybe) x

Marelli Wed 26-Aug-15 04:19:36

Been awake since 1.30, so have had 2 hours sleep so far, tonight. Last night wasn't much better, but no doubt will catch up as the week goes on.
All fears and worries magnify once the wee small hours arrive....... hmm
