We can have light bulb moments at some of strangest of times and weirdest of places. When and where do you tend to get your best ideas?

I can spend ages trying to come up with an idea for a poem or solution to a problem, but they usually do not come until my mind is completely unoccupied. Most often my ideas come when I am not in reach of a pen and paper, such as when I'm in the shower, or just going out for a walk. It is great feeling to get that sudden spark, but annoying that by the time I get within reach of a notepad, I've forgotten it all.
I often get my best ideas or solutions to my problems while I am lying in bed waiting to drift off to sleep.
They say necessity is the mother of invention and for me it's true - when I've got problems to solve, I can come up with some amazing solutions!
Like soupson, I come up with my ideas in bed. Usually after I've fed Baby and am trying to get back to sleep. I like to keep a pen and paper handy to jot down ideas I think are worthwhile. While studying education, I actually read that ideas tend to come to us when we are otherwise occupied and least expect it.

Just on going to sleep, or waking.

Bam....there it is.....No idea why? but it happens all the time.
On holidays
In transit just before or after yoga
In the shower after a beautiful nights sleep
Sometimes in my sleep too
Came up with a beautiful design for a gorgeous ring, in the shower, at 11.30pm, once. It eventuated, & had occasion to wear it last night!
I design my own jewellery, so it's a 'one-off'!
