In what possible way could this ever be a comfortable position to sleep?


Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008 | Life

Being rather exhausted after London, I spent most of Monday sleeping. And it was good 😀 .

Unfortunately I had some work to catch up on from the weekend (though I’m not fully caught up on it yet even now) but I almost managed a day off, like a proper one with nothing to do or anything. Good times. Especially as it doesn’t look like I’ll get my final day off from work due to how busy we are.

Apparently I really needed it though as I was still exhausted on Tuesday though awake enough to make it into work without sliding my car into a fence, a task not quite achieved by everyone in my office 😀 .

The morning

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008 | Life

I have been up since 7am this morning!

It’s been a while sinve I’ve been up this early. Before 8 is fairly common if I want to grab myself some breakfast but an hour before I normally get up, that is just unpleasant. Luckily, still having feeling a bit rough and knowing I could really do to get up early, I successfully made it to bed at 11 last night so I got a good night’s sleep in none the less.

The problem is, it’s just a cascade effect. I wanted to get in the office a bit early today to get some work done and therefore I had to get up before 8. If I get up before 8 I’m up early enough to deserve a McBreakfast. Which pushes my alarm to an even earlier time. And I had preparations to make for tonight’s dinner party and I wanted to get my steak cooked for lunch and son on, pushed by alarm all the way back to 7am.

Still, far later than I used to get up when I was doing opens so things could be worse I guess. And I can sleep in when I have some time off – which is now only 3 months away 😀 .

Sleeping the wrong way round

Sunday, July 20th, 2008 | Thoughts

A few days ago I swapped round the way I sleep on my bed so that my head is now closest to the door rather than my feet. Since then, I’ve never looked back.

It works so much better this way round. Most notably because I am now at far less of an angle when watching something on my computer and I’m closer to the screen and the sound too, about twice as close which is quite an improvement.

Also it means I’m closer to be bed side table which had to go at the end of my bed and it seems to make it easier to get in and out of bed without stepping on things as well. So there you go, the best way round to sleep is actually the wrong way round.

FYP is over!

I opened my curtains this morning.

That is a big event.

Not the act itself, but what it represents. For the first time in about two weeks I was doing something offer than arriving home, going to bed, getting up and going to uni. I normally go quite a while between opening my curtains (it generally happens once or twice a week at best) because I’m so busy normally but recently it’s been over 2 weeks since I have had them open.

That having been said, I’m a little disappointed that the weight has not really been lifted off my shoulders. I still have huge amounts of work to do and a to-do list trailing onto three pages. Plus exam revision starts soon, then working at whatever job I take. Maybe there is no magical break coming in the next few months, do we actually have to wait to retirement now?

Still, who cares, I actually feel rested for the first time in ages having spend 7 and a half hours in the pub yesterday and slept for a good 10 hours this morning. Good times.
