Not a Brilliant Day

I couldn't sleep last night. I was ready to zonk out at 9pm, but I had a few issues where I couldn't breathe properly, so I was awake at 2am. I don't know how I crawled out of bed at 6am, as I am someone who needs their sleep, and I swallowed down gallons of caffeine to get me awake enough for the school run. I am pathetic when I'm short on sleep.

I wrote off the day. I decided I would just slump in front of mindless internet, collect bear and pick up again tomorrow. I would just do the bare minimum. Having decided to do the bare minimum, I then scheduled every one of my posts for the October Frights Blog Hop, which starts tomorrow, including all the links and pics.

Then I went to pick up bear. The school run was awful. The elephant traps masquerading as road works appear to be half filled in, but I suspect that they will end up as superior quality pot holes. It still took over ten minutes to get through the road works and then I hit a traffic jam outside a school on the way to pick up bear. I try and avoid this stretch of road at pick up/drop off time for this school as it is a nightmare, with cars coming from all directions, zooming out of side roads into the tiniest gap in the crawling traffic and parked cars deciding that they were going to re-join the traffic now.

I managed to get back for bear's doctor's appointment in the nick of time, but it was running late, so I didn't have time to make the chestnut and lentil soup that I had promised DH, so I have scrabbled stuff from the freezer together for the men and now I'm wondering what I can eat. Tomorrow will be better.

Writing stuff - I'm continuing to post something every day of October, focusing on the supernatural and spooky. Today isn't so spooky, but it's sort of supernatural, and is here. Timothy Bateson has a book spotlight on a novel by Michael W Huard, Count Rothschild. Tomorrow is the start of the October Frights blog hop, so I will be linking to that.

Hugs to all.

  1. Write it off and start again tomorrow. School runs are never fun. I hated doing it and it was one thing I was glad I didn't have to do again once the kids had grown.

    Hope you get some sleep tonight
