It’s Friday. I’m supposed to be in the middle of a two day committee meeting. Instead I am lying on a towel looking at this: rejoicing at the slight breeze and listening to the birdsong and the buzzing of a million insects. Yesterday I looked up at the sky through the branches for the first […]
I fell asleep on the train, only to wake up when an unknown passenger walked past, saw me sleeping and knocked on the window to let me know that we’d arrived at the end of the line. Luckily that was the stop I’d been aiming for. Thank you, kind stranger, I would have hated waking […]
Curiosity probably didn’t directly kill the cat. It probably just kept it up so late it was too tired to avoid the things that could kill it. Finding things out has to be worth a bit of sleep loss though, right? 🙂 Zzzzzzz
I am told that the second day is the worst.
I hope that’s true.
I’ve mostly slept on an airbed since moving into my flat. The first one died, despite the stars, and I replaced it with a second of the same sort. I love airbeds, especially the deep ones, but since winter arrived it’d started to get damp underneath and I really really don’t want the floor to […]
For various reasons I am down to one pair of trousers which fits. I took said pair of trousers off and left them on the bathroom floor while I had a shower. It was already late and I was already sleepy, but sometimes needs must. I got out of the shower, looking forward to going […]
Sometimes I realise just how much I need to charge my batteries. Today was such a day. Today, I slept late, slept through the afternoon and am going to bed fairly early. I feel this is a good way to spend a day. Not every day, but once in a while. I hope tomorrow will […]
Lying here in bed, I realised that I’m in the same bed as I was in yesterday. That hasn’t happened for a while. A whole week in fact. I left my house on Friday morning last week and slept in a different bed each night until I got back home on Thursday evening. I love […]
It seems I’m my own best saboteur….but at least we have a good packed lunch!
“Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” – Howard Thurman *** One of my favourite people told me today that she sees me as a “PowerFrau”. That translates literally as “power woman”, but kind of […]
This morning I heard an ominous hissing…
I passed – wheeeee!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I don’t know how well I won, but I think it’s the winning part that counts. Now to catch up on lost sleep 🙂 (And later, on lost (/missing) posts)
Okay, so it was nothing like a Roxette song, but it was an adventure. There’s not much more freeing than packing your stuff into the back of your own car and driving into the sunset. And there’s not much more grown up than realising when you are really really tired and should stop to sleep […]
I’ve just been jolted out of an uneasy sleep in an uncomfortable aircraft seat by a food trolley. The absent minded trolley pusher rammed the trolley into my knee. I can only imagine it wasn’t intentional, so I can’t really be cross, even if it a) hurt, and b) woke me up. It seems like […]
I’m trying to finish my ‘book’* before Saturday evening. Or at the very very latest by Sunday morning. That would mean I can send it off to be printed before I go on holiday. ‘Holiday’ is used in the loosest form here – it’s more a chance to revise ALL the things than a chance […]
