I couldn't seem to stay asleep last night. We're having an unusually warm start to Spring at the moment (ie: today is going to be 34C, which is what around 90F or more?! - for those of you non-metric-y types), and I kept waking up either too hot with the quilt on or too cold with just a sheet. Time to dig out the light blanket tonight I think.
Plus I managed to scrape a chunk of skin off my right elbow (sadly, not in any entertaining way I might add, before you ask) and every time I rolled over on my side it would hurt and wake me up. Bastard elbow.
Consequently I'm dragging my ass a bit today. I did just have a very encouraging and consoling slice of homemade Bread & Butter Pudding (Nigella Lawson recipe) that my boss brought in for morning tea. (Remember how I said I thought The Christians were trying to fatten me up? Seem less like a mad conspiracy theory now, doesn't it?)
Speaking of work, the applications for my promotion close today, a formality that saw them have to do the right thing and open the applications up to other employees. As far as I know I'm still the only applicant. This should mean a nice pay increase when the position kicks in. Oh, and my flatmate went to a job interview yesterday and starts his new job today! I'm happy for him, because he's been out of work for quite a while and it'll be good for him to have some income and normalcy back in his life.
I have the office to myself today, as The Loudest Person In The Building has a day off. I wonder if I could curl up under the desk for a wee kip?...
[Updated: It has just hit 36C - 97F! Hey Spring, you're supposed to be Spring not Summer. Gah, doofus.]
