My tool is a Remington Barba, which is more of a beard trimmer than anything else; at least that is what I use it for. But needs must.
Sometimes I wake up early in the morning, and manage to roll over and go back to sleep. However, I find that the less time I have to catch those extra z’s, sometimes it leaves me feeling more tired than if I had just got up when I woke.
The geek factor of this machine is wonderful. I made the decision a few years ago to buy my own machine, which is why I have to download and print reports, rather than give them the machine and let them do it themselves. But the detail is incredible, including both summary information and drill-downs to individual nights.
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, so no real change there. It wouldn’t have been a disaster (after all, I am driving Christmas and Boxing Day, anyway); but I must admit, I would have resented having spent money on a really nice bottle of port, if I wasn’t going to be able to have a glass.
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. I have mine as far to one side as I can manage, which leaves a good half of the desk available for non-computer tasks. Since the pictures I first took for Facebook, I have moved the device to the left side of my desk, which I prefer; I have also angled it slightly, so it doesn’t feel like it is just sticking out.
It hasn’t done badly – I’ve had it for about 3 years, and considering it has had me sitting on it almost every day, I think it deserves a good retirement. In fact, I was so pleased with it, that I went back to the same company who sold it to me – Chellgrove Office Furniture, in Peterborough.
Frankly, they are both totally missing the point.
This seemed to coincide with my other bad habit of buying prepared food and ready-meals. But it is not a coincidence. Walking round a supermarket (whether it is Tesco, Coop, Waitrose or whatever) it is just so easy to see things and think “that looks nice” and put it in your basket.
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 inflates in use, ballooning to fit the contours of your face. The SleepWeaver can be used with CPAP, BiPAP or AutoPAP.
