So sorry about yesterday, gentle readers. Without going into any detail, after a weekend of not sleeping all that much I just didn't have the energy. I resorted to one of those sugar and caffeine loaded 'energy drinks' at lunchtime which fired up my brain enough to manage the afternoon but which caused a crash later on. Fortunately I was home by then so no problems.
Oddly, we had another power cut just after five. Some of us in the cul de sac checked that it was not just one house and my lovely next door neighbour contacted her husband who checked online (we couldn't, of course) and he let her know they said power back on at eight thirty. She also checked that I was OK for food, etc, which was very nice of her. Thanks, J.
It's strange to have two cuts so close together when we haven't had any for years and years.
It was a dull evening so to make the most of the natural light I decided to sit out in the garden with a book and my fleece which was actually very nice, despite the lack of sun, until it started spitting with rain! Fortunately the power came on earlier than expected so I spent the evening vegging in front of the telly before having a very early night and a great sleep.
I do wish I didn't get so stressed out about stuff . . .
Today is, I think (hope) an ordinary day.
I've decided to ease off on Breadline while things are so fraught in other ways. It will be back but right now I need to ease off on unnecessary pressures.
