Thanks, @soundscaper, yes there does seem to be some evidence for red wine, cheese and chocolate causing insomnia. Ping @SnarkyPlatypus

@alexkidman That does seem to be the case, from that I hear, though I’ve not had to do much breast feeding. Yet.

@SnarkyPlatypus Sorry to hear. I haven’t had more than four hours sleep in… weeks.

In the preceding dream we [who? dunno] had to make up some elaborate excuses about the man who drowned in the river and why we could fly.

@gusworldau I have never been to a Lizzies night, but this year it’s on my birthday and the night before I catch UA870, so there’s that.

So with this insomnia it’s wide awake, then sudden crash back to half-sleep, a bunch of dreaming, then blurry awake, repeated 4 or 5 times.
