    I've had a burst pipe and am sat here waiting for the repair man to, well, repair it! He is lovely btw!
    I am never up this late and am intrigued as to why others are? Are you bored like me? Working? Looking after children/babies? Just got in from a night out? Insomniac? OR just a 'late-nighter?' Sorry for the nosey question but i'm intrigued, as well as bored!!
    Perhaps, sensibly for this time in the academic year you are all in bed (I'm sooo jealous).

    Aww sorry to hear that Lara! Hope you're better soon.
    I'm up as Im on the other side of the world and (pathetically) at present the internet (and the people on the other end of it) are my only friend(s)
    Hope your pipe is fixed now [​IMG] x
  4. I can emthathise with you, lara, as i am in much the same situation. Chronic pain always feels worse during the night, and morphine patch and the co-dyramols longer in taking effect. When I do eventually doze off, my 'prostate alarm clock' has me up at about 5 am.
