Sleep, Precious Sleep!

I might have mentioned how tired I am trying to adjust to working full-time again. It is so odd as I have always been used to working so hard, yet don’t remember ever being this shattered (must be my age)!  I have been in bed before 9 pm every night and slept pretty much all night. Miss Hap stays up later than I do.

Speaking of which, I had to stay up till 10 o’clock last night, ON A SCHOOL NIGHT!!! She is currently in Germany at the Cologne Christmas markets with the school, and we had to drop her off at 9.30 pm to get settled on the coach which was leaving at 10 pm.

Needless to say, today was busy at work and I had a student with me as well. Due to my ‘late night’ I was tired and a bit crabby, especially as we didn’t get back to the office to eat our lunch until 3 pm!

I am so glad it is Friday and I can wind down a bit (and stay up late if I want to, although I am usually too knackered)! Not so tonight anyway, we have to be at the school at  3.15 AM to pick her up!! Hmmmm. Looks like I’ll have to go to bed soon. Talk about being old before your time – I feel about 100!

  1. I can certainly appreciate the “feeling old” part, and I dare say I’m much older than you. Fortunately I’m retired, so my strange hours are my own choice–I resist going to bed, prefer to watch late movies and write all manner of poetry…. Have a great weekend!

  2. I know you’ve been at it for awhile now, but I do find whenever I start a new job it wears me out. Even now that I’m retired, I did a little temporary part-time gig over the summer, and it wore me out. And now I’m going to be doing a new online teaching gig in January, and have walked to campus a couple of times recently to do library research, and that wears me out! (also, I am old.)


I'd love to know what you think
