It's been rather weird for me being in Cheltenham but not welcome around kissycat1000's from time to time. I suppose this is one of those things I'll have to get used to; it's silly because it's not a change from before, but my mental state of being in Cheltenham or even just driving there makes me think I'm going to see kissycat1000. I guess I realised consciously it would be a change but it's still affected me somewhat subconsciuosly.
Anyway, after they left last night at about 7, I was supposed to be getting on washing up another two box-fulls of crockery that baloo099 had kindly donated, and putting my clothes away. I was so tired though that I decided to go to bed. Just in case I slept through I turned off all the lights and generally prepared for and went to bed. At 7:30pm. Needless to say I slept through, but I actually woke up before my alarm, without a start.
What a difference actually having had enough sleep for once has made. I'm not irritable, I feel able to concentrate on work, I'm cheerful and despite various things that need to get sorted I'm not stressed or worried about them. kissycat1000, I seriously want to look after the kids for you overnight so you can get an uninterrupted and peaceful night's rest. It will do you the world of good, trust me :)
My mother and my sister are coming around tonight with a 3-seater sofa for me. Tomorrow is going to be last minute preparations and then some relaxation I hope :)
Don't forget if you want to come to the party you need to submit your email address to the poll on this post :)
