Awake in the night!

It’s been a while since I wrote an awake in the night post, but I can’t sleep.  I woke John up to tell him I was restless and that I had seen some children sat on the floor at the side of my bed! He just grunted, patted me like a dog and said, “It’s ok go back to sleep ”  Can you believe that 😲

When I looked at the clock it was 01.01 am. Then I was wide awake 🤔 wondering if that formation of numbers had some sort of spiritual significance and was meant to tell me something. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I’ve got up to have a bowl of cereal and cold milk. I was told by a lady who I follow on the site that a cheese triangle is good if you can’t sleep but the thought of eating one of those just now makes me feel 🤢🤮 so I will give that a miss 😬

I considered doing some painting, no not the walls, on canvas but I know if I start that I will be up most of the night. Then I would get paint on my hands, living in an apartment I don’t like running the water in the night because I am considerate to my neighbours!

So if I paint I would have to go to bed and sleep with my arms raised like a surgeon who has just been scrubbed up to perform an operation! Or I could wrap my hands in carrier bags 👎Nope I can’t be doing with that.

I could watch some TV with my head phones on but I think the reason I’m awake is because I watched too much TV yesterday. I was a proper couch potato, only moving for food, mainly snack food. I was such a sloth 🙄 I watched a couple of movies. One was Joseph and his amazing coloured dream coat, the Andrew Loyd Webber musical, I love that film. I was singing along at the top of my voice until I noticed John grimacing, I thought they were good singers, he obviously does not recognise talent!  Then I watched a cheesy Christmas film called The 12 dates of Christmas, which was pretty good as well.

I think I am going to listen to my audiobook The monk who sold his Far Fiar … (can’t spell the car name) it’s one of those flashy low down cars. Basically the book is all about a lawyer who has a heart attack and sells all his belongings and goes to India and becomes a monk. He then comes back home to share his knowledge with the man he used to work with. In case you haven’t realised it’s a spiritual book 👼🏻 which takes us back to basics I.e. the importance of eating healthily, resting, meditating and letting go of what we don’t need, the material things!

I was going to listen to some of it yesterday but feasted on movies instead. Yes, I’ve decided 🤗 the Monk book it is. I will put my earphones on with the long cord and listen to it in bed. You don’t think I will get strangled if I turn over do you 😳

Catch you later to impart some more information of spiritual importance 🙂🙃🙂Elaine x


  1. Oh deary me. If I woke the husband up every time I had a restless night I don’t think we’d be together anymore! I spent half of last night on the sofa before trotting – or rather, limping – back to bed. I got that book too! It’s spelt F-e-r-r-a-r-i 🙂 As for 01-01, zero and adding the two one’s together ( two) 🙂 🙂 🙂 all have significance.

  2. cool! kids sitting beside your bed eh? I feel my daughter’s dead Tiger Tabby jump up on the bed every now and then. she loved laying on the bed because it helped keep her warm.


  3. Hi Elaine. I find that drinking a glass of milk and eating a slice of bread with peanut butter on about half an hour before going to bed, helps me sleep soundly during the night. Not cheese in any form.

    1. That’s interesting, I love peanuts but not in spread. I think I am awake in the night when I want to write something or paint something that’s significant to my spiritual journey. Thank you for the photo of the geese you sent me I agree that they would make a good painting too x
