Just when I find a moisturiser that really works (L'Oreal's Age Re-perfect) I have to go and develop an allergy to it. The first week was fine and even Mr G noticed my wrinkles vanishing. But last night I awoke with streaming eyes and nose, and this morning I've just put the day cream on and can't stop sneezing and blowing. That's £40+ down the drain.
I have tried others that don't make me sneeze and stream, but they don't work. What do I do? Put up with the allergic rhinitis and see my wrinkles disappearing, or smear my wrinkles with the hypoallergenic goo that doesn't work? The latter seems a pointless exercise, apart from the fact that it makes my face feel less like it's going to crack if I smile.
On another subject, I sometimes wake in the night with an idea for a song, short story or poem in my head, so I decided the solution would be a notebook and pen next to the bed for my nocturnal inspirations. Two nights ago I woke up with the most wonderful poem literally writing itself in my mind. The notebook was an arm's reach away. As was the light switch. I thought about it. Either act might wake me up so I couldn't get back to sleep again. Damn it, I thought. I'll remember it in the morning and work on it then. Next day, it was six in the evening before I recalled the previous night's poem. Did I remember a word of it? What do you think!
