It's Sod's Law that :
 the young don't want to stop for sleep, feel full of energy, but sleep as if poleaxed for 12 +hours
 the oldies want to sleep, feel perpetually tired but feel grateful if they manage more than 4 hours deep sleep
 it rains when you've just watered the garden and all the containers
 it fails to rain for weeks if you've just sprinkled powdered weed n feed on the lawn
the house gleams, smells of polish, is tidy but no one calls
 the house looks like Steptoes' junk yard with thick dust every where and unexpected visitors drop in for a 'surprise' visit.
That's life I suppose ....
