Isn’t it amazing what a good nights sleep can do.
Yesterday I was even too tired to blog or upload pictures. Whatever next?! The night before I went to bed at silly o’clock. I’m not actually sure of the precise time, but I know it was a silly time to go to bed on a work night. It was my friend Caron's birthday meal - spaghetti bolognaise, garlic bread, salad, and chocolate cake. Delicious. And the night flew by at a frightening speed.
Our other dear friend Annie also joined the birthday meal, and I am racking my brain to remember the last time it was just the three of us. Unlike the old days, where we were joined at the hip and more or less lived together in Caron's bungalow. I have very fond memories of that bungalow, and the trampoline in the lounge.
There were many, many things to discuss before, during and after the meal. Therefore it was silly o’clock when we retired to our beds, and I was a very tired girl yesterday. I must have yawned a million times, I must have drunk about a thousand mugs of coffee and I must have looked at the time and sighed a hundred times. Okay, I’ve exaggerated these amounts; I don’t think it’s possible to drink a thousand mugs of coffee in one day. But can you see the point I am making? I was tired. With a capital T.
When I finally left work and reached my house, my mother commented, “You look shattered!” I know!
After dinner with my parents, which wasn’t ideal, as my aunt telephoned while I was still eating, and my mother and aunt started discussing urine infections and other bodily functions. Too much information! My knife and fork were hastily placed on the kitchen table and I decided my bed was calling me.
It seemed a little too early to actually get into my bed, so I climbed onto it and watched ‘super skinny verses super size’ and ‘wife swap’, which I’d taped the other night. ‘Super skinny verses super size’ is a good programme to watch, reminding yourself to eat healthily, and not over eat or under eat. And ‘wife swap’ is a good programme to watch if you are nosey, like myself, and you enjoy peering into other people’s lives. Kind of like blogging! Although I must admit I was fighting to keep my eyes open last night, during these television programmes.
At last it was bed time! I don’t know if I’ve ever been so happy to see my pillow, or welcomed sleep in such a joyful manner.
I feel one hundred per cent revitalised today. I feel as if I could leap over small buildings and run around the world. Yep, it’s amazing what a good nights sleep can do.
