Random observations regarding my sleep. I’ve got a sleep clinic appointment coming up next week, so this is currently on my mind. Sometimes I wake up early in the morning, and manage to roll over and go back to sleep. However, I find that the…

At the end of August I bought a Garmin Forerunner 235 watch, to replace my Fitbit. It was somewhat of an impulse buy (who, me?), but I am completely satisfied with it.

I have a sleep apnea appointment in a week’s time, at Papworth. As a result, I have just downloaded data from my AutoPAP, to prove I remember how to do it – I will do it again the morning of my appointment. The geek factor…

Back home with the holiday’s booze (both for home, and to take with me to friends). After which, I belatedly look up whether I am actually allowed to drink with my new meds. Bottom line – I am ok, as long as I am sensible,…

I’ve now been using my WorkFit-S sit/stand desk for a couple of weeks, and it is going well. Most of the publicity shots and videos show this kind of thing plumped in the middle of the desk – that doesn’t make any sense to me.…

My office chair was coming to the end of its life. The gas lift was beginning to fail, although that could be replaced/repaired, but it was also getting a bit grubby with daily use. Then a wheel fell off! It hasn’t done badly – I’ve…

My last post hasn’t raised any comments here, but I know it has been read. In the last couple of days, I have been lectured twice in person. Once by a friend who explained to me how “organic” was all a con, and it had…

A month back I restarted my vegetable box, from the good people of Riverford Sacrewell. I stopped the box last year, simply because I was getting so much veg from my garden. I should have restarted it when my garden’s production ended, but I got…

Knowing that there are one or two other CPAP users here, I thought that this might be of interest. I’ve just taken delivery of a radical (at least to me!) new nasal mask called SleepWeaver. Unlike conventional masks, this is made of soft fabric, and…

… probably wasn’t the smartest thing to do this morning, with an optician’s appointment to pay for. As I haven’t been out much recently, my wallet was sitting on my desk, from my last bout of buying stuff online. I turned up at Queensgate, and…

[Note: thankfully this issue has now been resolved]

After it got dark, I was able to do the final test, and the answer is a minor *sigh*.

I really don’t know what it is about equipment manufacturers and backlit keys and displays, especially for machines meant for the bedroom. Am I the only one who thinks the bedroom should be relatively dark?

I realise that I have been posting a lot about my CPAP lately – obviously, it has been on my mind at lot. If all goes well, this will be my last such post for a while.
