I used to be a good sleeper...then I joined GR! LOL

seriously though, my sleep patterns were shot when I looked after my mum and had to get up to her 3/4 times a night, thats nine years ago and I stll don't sleep as well as I did.

trouble is I am not one who manages on a few hours...I am very grumpy in the morning lol

Oh Karen you must be my long lost sister. I am exactly the same, my husband can fall asleep half way through a sentence. I however take at least an hour to fall asleep, wake up several times in the night and struggle to go back to sleep again.
It definitely gets worse as you get older - well with me it does anyway

Hi Barrie,

I can sleep for England, regularly go to bed at 10/11 and don't wake till 7/8.

Fit and healthy...I thought that as you got older you needed less sleep!!!!! Not me

How about you?
