Why is it you wake up at some ridiculous time of the morning, in my case 2 o'clock, and lay there for the rest of the night unable to go back to that lovely dream you were having?
So, I woke up at 2 and despite my very best efforts I was still awake at 4. My brain just started thinking about random rubbish and refused to shut down. I was planning what to buy for my daughters pack lunches for next week when she is back at school. Which led to I need to get her uniform ironed and labelled. Which than led to what we were going to have for tea and than onto what I was going to wear today. Arrrrrgh! Just go to sleep..
I tried reading my book which didn't work as it was getting to the good bit, I got up and made a drink. I turned the light out and closed my eyes which just ignited the thoughts further because I started thinking about things that I could write about. The duvet was on because I was cold than I was hot so is was thrown off. I turned this way and that before finally about 4 nodding back off.
Only to be wide awake at 6. What was going on? Typically it was my first day in months that I could have had a lie in. The children had slept out over-night and yet here I was up earlier than ever. By this time I was so fed up that I got up, made my first coffee of the day and started work on all those little ideas I had had. 4 coffees later I am still here...
