Morning grannyzanny and welcome from Kent.

Do you suffer from insomnia ? I noticed the time of your post grin

Welcome grannyzanny - I've been on Gransnet for about a year. It's helped me many times, made me laugh and kept me company.

Good morning grannyzanny and welcome to a sunny day on Gransnet. I am in Essex. I hope you can take a minute to look at your local Gransnet site and perhaps add something there.

Just realized my post sounds flippant. Insomnia is no joke I know. Sorry if you are affected.

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome!

ninathenana yes I am an insomniac though not every night. Last night was a good one - I didn't need to go downstairs smile

Hi Grannyzanny. I'm a newbie too. In Somerset where it's grey and overcast. Have our granddaughters here after a sleepover. All had a lie in. Breakfast next. Been a bit wary of adding comments to discussions but am so enjoying reading threads. It's a bit lonely here as new to the area, lovely to know there are other grandparents out there Hope you enjoy. smile

Hello there -another neighbour here in Herefordshire - but only just - Wales is just down the road.

Look forward to reading your posts.

Oh I do the 'shall I go downstairs' conversation in my head when insomnia bites (luckily not as badly as it used to).
Must admit I sometimes just give in and go downstairs but then, on advise from councillor, make sure I enjoy the experience. So I make a cup of tea, get comfy on sofa and either read something wordy and comforting (usually a Jane Austen) or call up a gentle old black and white film.
I found that the more I worried that I should not be 'downstairs' the longer it took me to calm down and relax. Once I just saw it as a treat I found that after an hour or so I am in a much better frame of mind and can get to sleep.

P.S. am on edge of Wales in this bit of Herefordshire. Can see Black Mountains on a clear day.

Hello grannyzanny and welcome to GN. I'm in Plymouth, nowhere near you, so we will just have to be content with a virtual friendship on here grin.
I'm a bit of an insomniac, not as bad since I retired however. It used to be a regular thing, up in the night for an hour or so with a book and a hot drink (or a hot toddy!), then back to a nicely cooled bed, but dreading the alarm clock going off at 6.15 shock.
Nowadays if I give in and come downstairs it's a hot drink and Gransnet grin

Hi hobbitgran. Like you I'm enjoying reading the threads - lots of interesting subjects and heated debates!
Luckygirl and HildaW I think the Herefordshire/Welsh border is a lovely part of the country. I love a good mooch around Hay smile
Hello AshTree, my dad lives in Liskeard so I'm familiar with your area.
As you can see by the time I should be sending out the zzzzz's but at least there's Gransnet to keep me occupied wink How time flies...
