A very early good morning to everyone. It's middle of the night, I've been awake for a couple of hours and there seems to be no sign of any tiredness galloping over the horizon. I know it's naughty to have technology on but what's a girl to do when there's nothing to do, eh? So I'm typing and will send really early before going back up to try and settle once more.
It's a nuisance but just a phase.
Yesterday was very quiet and I didn't do all that much which is perhaps why I'm not tired. I did various bits and bobs - planned the week's meals, did some more tidying up, kept in touch with Suzanne, disappeared upstairs when the cleaner arrive - all that sort of stuff.
I had a text from the shelving delivery people with a link to a video about how to construct the things. I'll probably give that a good watching at some point today, after I get home from Hyde Hall. I'd booked an arrival slot for me and Suzanne and I'm not going to waste it. I will go, have a good wander around and see if there's anything in the shop that could be used as little Christmas gifts. Beth has a birthday coming up very soon and, although she'd had her gift from me already, a few little parcels to go with her card would be nice.
That's it really. Fingers crossed for a bit of sunshine later on (I haven't checked) and I will probably go even if it is drizzling a bit for the fresh air and exercise.
Finishing on a positive note - because tuition sessions have had to stop again, I will have that much more time to get that shelving up. Wouldn't it be nice if it were all done and dusted by next weekend. Here's hoping. As well as the actual shelving, I saw a couple of sort of storage units for garden implements - spades, forks, brooms, etc., so got a couple of them as well. They weren't expensive and should really help.
Right. Time to go back up in hopes. Have a great day and do stay safe and well. xx
Hope you managed to get back to sleep, Joy. Blimmin annoying isn't it? I know if (no, when!) I have to get up for the loo in the early hours, I'll most likely be awake for a couple of hours then. At least it wasn't until 04.20 this morning though, not so bad. Enjoy your wander round Hyde Hall, even if it is without your friend. XxReplyDelete
4:30 is great, well done, although not it's dark at that time, it does seem much more still the middle of the night.Delete
I did get some more sleep, thanks, Sooze. I'll keep active today and get that fresh air, raining or not, and should be fine later on.
It's just stuff on my mind, I think, and it's giving me some very vivid/shallow dreams that keep waking me or preventing me falling back off again.
Broken nights are horrid but as you say what are you to do. I too woke early this morning tried to get back to sleep then gave up and went and made coffee. I sometimes wonder if the changing seasons and light levels might have a part to play with sleep disruption. Christie too was having insomnia problems. Anyway glad you got a bit more I will be having an early night.ReplyDelete
It could be, couldn't it, as well as the changes in temperature, plus all the anxiety around at the moment too. I'm sure it will settle again in time and good luck with your early night.Delete
Enjoy your trip to Hyde Hall, even though it's not quite what you had planned.ReplyDelete
I'm experiencing sleep issues as well, so have that constant tired/under the weather feeling hanging about me all the time. I tend to just go with the flow and providing I keep to my usual routines, it eventually corrects itself and I get a few good night's sleep.
Thanks. It's always nice to visit, even if, as you say, plans change. And there will always be another time.Delete
I hope you sleep better tonight.
Thanks, Laurie. xxDelete
I have been sleeping so much better since the heat has abated it is quite a bit cooler in the evenings now.All the same Joy you are right what is to be done if you can't sleep....laying there in my case just makes it worse so I get up make myself a cup of tea and like you get on the computer...after all our blogfriends across the pond are bound to be up so I catch up on blogs I haven't commented. keep well Amanda x PS: hope you sleep well tonight :-)ReplyDelete
I'm glad you're sleeping so much better. I can't just lie and wait either, I just get more and more restless.Delete
And LOL to the other comment!!
sorry!! lying not laying A xReplyDelete
I hope you managed to nod back off. I keep waking up but make myself stay in bed and eventually I do drop back offReplyDelete
I do hope that you managed a nap at some point. Nothing worse than not being able to sleep.ReplyDelete
That's too bad that you are having trouble sleeping. Sometimes I just get up really early, make coffee, and start the day. There's always something to do.ReplyDelete
