Hello Geoff. Every time I see your post I want to dive in and pat that dog of yours. What a cute face.
yes my friend is on epileptic meds too for her depression. It makes her jittery and hyper and tired at odd times..
my mum for the past 20 years or so also goes to bed latest at 6 o'clock and gets up 1 or 2 in the morning. If she sleeps in its about 3! She irons, cooks, and when it's dawn she goes into the garden. Works for her.
I hate socializing in the evenings so I mainly meet people for coffee or I go for a walk down the street. I like informal socializing with people I meet or have a chat about their dog, garden, the weAther, news. I like my evenings to read and potter and now engage on this site. V.
