Sleepless In Sydney

Sorry for the short break in transmission yesterday, I took my Grandmother's advice and decided that if you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all. I've just been feeling a bit rundown and off colour the past few days, and every blog entry I started yesterday turned into Whine-Fest 2008.

I'm not convinced that I'm dealing all that well with these new meds I started to try and improve my sleep situation. I've been sleeping well for about 4 hours every night, before waking in the early hours of the morning and tossing and turning for the rest of the morning. I'm still in the process of progressively increasing the dosage until I get to the full strength in around a week's time, so I'm going to persevere and see if things improve. I've been up since about 4 this morning though, so I'm not really firing on all cylinders today.

Anyhoo, I'm looking forward to a nice long three day weekend this weekend! I'm going to try and pack in as many early nights as I can to try and catch up on some of this sleep debt I'm making. Recent changes to the airport approach here in Sydney (due to runway repairs) mean that all the morning flights seem to be flying pretty much directly over my house. So 6.30am onwards is just a wall of sound as flight after flight make their approach, meaning that sleeping in is not really an option. I might try and plan in some afternoon nappage as well. Mmmm, afternonn nappage.

Current weekend plans involve a couple of knitting get-togethers and a birthday dinner for a friend. This is like day 6 in a row today of rainy weather, so I'm hoping the weather clears over the weekend because there are things I need to do outdoors. Fun things, but also jobs that I have been putting off like cleaning out my gutters and trimming the trees in my courtyard.

This will probably be it for today, but once I've caught up on a bit of sleep and improved my outlook I'll post some more stuff over the weekend. Catch you then!

While granny-aphorisms are all well and good, I personally prefer the "if you cant say anything nice about someone, come and sit with me"

Hate to tell you, but the weather forecast is umbrellas required for about another week.

It's lunchtime on a Friday before a long weekend. And you've already resigned so they can't sack you. Turn that whine-fest into a wine-fest and have a revivingly boozy lunch! :)

Bon weekend!

It might be too late now but I'm still waiting for your promised review on Eurovision... just in case you needed a different topic for writing.

sleep well; and dream of waterfalls and ice cream.

I do hope you get some sleep. mine's been a bit crappy lately - I can't imagine what lots of crappy would be like. I long to be able to Nanna-nap but I certainly haven't inherited that skill from The Delightful Nanna(TM).

go crazy, go nap!

(ps - have heard most of June will be wet)

Hope you have a restful weekend. Love the idea of afternoon naps. Alas, I have never acquired that skill. My "naps" tend to just roll over into sleep. Followed up waking up at some ungodly hour. Not what you want!

Hoping you get some rest...and feel better soon.

I know too much rainy weather inevitably brings me down.
Thank God I live where it hardly ever rains (ha)
