I'm off to bed now. But before I go I thought that I'd ask you a question. What is the very last thing that you do before you go to bed? I'm off to put my teeth in the mug now!! (and if you believe that..) Night Night All.

The last thing I do before going to bed is fix my coffeepot so it will have it all ready for me in the morning. I love a nice hot cup of coffee when I wake up, especially now that it's turned chilly!

Dragon54u When I was a boy my parents bought a tea making machine called, not too surprisingly a "Teasmade". Now this thing boiled a kettle of water which then poured the water into a teapot etc. The first morning my dad woke up screaming because the steam from the kettle went straight into his face! We laugh now! Enjoy your coffee. P1ke

Your poor dad!! The Teasmade was right by their bed? You must've lived in a very small place! That's a great family story. I just looked up pictures of it and they are very strange looking but rather elegant!

The point of the teasmade was that you didn't have to get out of bed to drink your tea. The machine was on the bedside table. The house is not the smallest house otherwise.

Would that be the last thing we do before GETTING into bed ... or the last thing we do before we doze off? If it's the first, I brush my teef. If it's the second, I feel the clunk of my book falling on my nose. The last thing I hear is the sound of my husband piddling in the fernery ... which is the last thing HE does before he comes to bed ... Unfortunately.

Either Guy. I heard somewhere that male urine doesn't mark grass but female urine does. That's probably why so few females pee in the garden!

My husband thinks if he marks his territory, we won't be bothered by neighbourhood cats. Meeoow!

Does it work? I'm plagued by cats. The Boss won't let me pee on them though.

The last thing I do before I get comfy in bed is take my tablets, probably visit the bathroom and then obviously turn out the lights. Not something I could imagine you saying - off to bed. I thought you spent your whole time on here!!

Cheeky! I admit that I do have one or two myLotters that are charged with sending me to bed if Im still here after a certain time. I go then. I do as I am told! I do sleep though.

Hi Piky,we all have our nightly routines ,but lol my routine does not include sticking my teeth in a mug either!!my routine varies ,I am not a night owl,usually I get too tired to stay up late,sometimes I think it would be great to be able to sit up late,but it will not seem to work for me,my peepers will not keep open!But last thing before I climb those wooden hills I make a cup of tea,multi tasking too,as the dog has to be let out at the same time,and then I take my little self and my latest novel off to bed,and that is how its done most nites for me.

I don't know if you have every heard of the cartoonist "Pont" Ruby. he was alive between the wars and did a series called "The British Character". He had one lady in bed surrounded by ghostly detectives etc. I don't think that you look like the lady, but I see you lying in bed reading your story. The cartoon is here: http://flickr.com/photos/herry/2556008445/ I'll expect a Ruby broadside in due course!

When I get ready to go to bed, I go to the bathroom, put on my nightshirt, tell Hubby I love him, get in bed, talk to Petey for a bit, get Morgana comfy on my legs and fall asleep. [b]~~IN SEARCH OF PEACE WITHIN~~ **AGAINST THE STORMS, I WILL STAND STRONG** [/b]

The last thing I do before bed is turn off my computer,go to the bathroom,strip off all my clothes put them in the hamper and then go to my room and crawl into bed to fall into slumber. I know I should say my prayers every night but sometimes I forget.

I pray to God. It completes my day and helps me rest better at night. I think I wake up refreshed the next day because I end my day communicating with my maker.

I kiss my son goodnight and tell him I love him! Then I am off to my bed and hopefully sleep! If the kitties join me I even give them a hug and kiss goodnight! What can I say. I am a mom to my animals too!

Depends on the night *sigh*. But I either engage in a strenuous heart pumping workout . Or I roll over and sigh heavily and complain that the TV is still on.

Youth has its advantages. A strenuous heart pumping workout for me is operating the controls of the TV remote!

Hm, let's see, wash face and hands, brush teeth, take melatonin, brush hair, get in pjs, put psoriasis medication on, set alarm clock (unless it's a weekend), turn on fan (if hot), turn off light (unless still waiting for husband). Exciting,huh?

Night night, p1kef1sh. Sleep well. The very last thing I do before I go to bed is kiss my husband good night. Although we are usually in bed when it happens, so does that count?

That counts Pots. I do the same. Not kiss your husband! But kiss my wife. She always gives me a little snore to say that she received it. LOL.

Hi there p1kef1sh The very, very last thing I do before I go to bed at night is visit the bathroom! I hate waking in the middle of the night for a wee it is really annoying so I always make I go before I go to bed but apart from that I guess it would be, switch off the light! Night, night sleep tight!
@p1kef1sh (45647)

Sometimes I am OK in that department and sometimes not! It's a blooming nuisance I know that. Anyway. I slept well and hope to again tonight. I hope that you do too.

Wel actually I am having problems with my 3 year old at the moment as he has been climbing into bed with me for too long now and I am trying to get back to staying in his own bed as I am getting dizzy spells from the lack of sleep. Another week or so and I should have the problem nailed - fingers crossed!

The very last thing I do is run into the corner of my desk, say an ugly word, wake hubby up, tell him it's ok, go back to sleep, then I crawl in bed. Yeah, you'd think I'd know the desk is there after all this time, wouldn't you? But, it is part of my nightly routine. If I don't do it, I can't sleep.*LOL* Ok, seriously, the last thing I do before I get into bed is make sure the closet door is closed.
