I've been busy, no surprises there. But after being out three nights, playing with Missy when I've got back and not going to bed until late, then waking up annoyingly early on Friday, I ended up too tired to do anything yesterday (and Friday). So I did the two things I had to get done this weekend and then just read, watched some TV and dicked about on the internet. It was nice. I'm looking forward to two weeks time when I have four weeks off where I only go out twice on weekday nights. Of course I'm then busier at the weekends, but that's not nearly as tiring. Although on the nights I'm in Missy gets up after dinner (if I'm lucky, sometimes it's during) and that's my evening gone.

Although Missy hasn't forgotten about her desire to live in the sofa. She's just got more crafty about it. She doesn't fill her pouches up so much before attempting to run to the sofa and avoid me catching her. I have got similarly crafty and wait until she's busy stuffing her pouch (rather than chewing) and attempt to catch her. I am amazed what big pieces of cardboard she can fit in there. In her cage she absolutely stuffs her pouches full of bedding, so then I don't let her out. After a while she empties one and I still don't let her out. She gets to come out when both are empty. At some point in this process she throws a strop because I'm not letting her do what she wants.

It wasn't just tiredness that led to me not doing much yesterday - I've also hurt my feet, so I'm spending the weekend resting them. I think what I've been doing is wrapping my feet around the legs of my wheely chair at work (even though I have a footrest). And then I went to ballet, which finished them off. After standing up quite a lot at choir, I then attempted to limp on both feet on my way back to the car.

I will get to the rest of my December Talking Meme topics at some point. Just not quite yet. This time last year things were really quiet and I wrote a few Yuletide Treats because I was bored. Now I'm looking forward to being bored.

Work has calmed down, so I am getting through my non-project (ie no deadline) to do list. But your whole day playing about with css is quite tiring in itself. Then outside of work I've either been out, or in and sorting out stuff (mostly house-related, still) or have overdone it and ended up too dizzy to do much. Waking up at 6am and not being able to get back to sleep, and waking up at 4am and not being able to get back to sleep for a while is not helping either.

This weekend's quite busy (apart from this morning) and then next week I have nothing planned for any evening and could do with keeping it that way. Maybe then I'll have the time and energy to put my Christmas cards up, for one thing. And catching up on some TV would be good too, although it's not like it's going anywhere and it's not as if there's likely to be much on TV in January.

Thursday was foggy. It was foggy in the morning, it was foggy in the fields when I left work, it was foggy when I went to choir - so much so that walking into the church hall and being able to see clearly was really weird. It was so foggy on the way home that all I could see was the patch of road in front of me. The only reason I knew where there were parked cars is because they're usually in those places - I couldn't see them until I was nearly on top of them. So that was a long, hard drive home at max 30mph (on roads with no parked cars, 20mph with). I had to drop a friend off at her house and we went for somewhere in the vicinity because I couldn't see it and I had a van up my arse.

And then when I got home I had to do some work.

Yesterday evening I was so tired I was tempted to go to bed at 7.30pm, if I hadn't been doing work at the time (I would have left it for today, but the software we use was being upgraded all day - suffice to say bits of it now don't work. I'm really looking forward to Monday...).

And now today I'm just too tired to do anything. Well, except for watching wheelchair curling, which would have been more interesting if Channel 4 weren't so desperate to give me the result before I could start the video of the semi-final.

I'm sure I'm not normally this tired on a Saturday, so perhaps it's just as well that choir is stopping for five months over the summer. I should have more time to rest and do a few things that need doing that I end up saving for the weekend because I don't have time during the week because I'm either out or too tired to do anything.

I am so tired and dizzy, the last thing I want to do is post to my blog, but I have to for NaBloPoMo. So you're getting a post about how tired I am.

It's partly work and going out to ballet and choir and not being 100% better from my sore throat thing coupled with not getting enough sleep on Wednesday night and waking up at the time when my alarm would usually go off today.

I kept hoping I would improve today. Perhaps it didn't help that I went up the road, which wears me out at the best of times. But then I haven't done anything for the rest of the day aside from lie around on the sofa.

I'm really hoping that I sleep late tomorrow and am less tired. I intend to post about crochet tomorrow, with a photo of all the granny squares I've done so far.

I’m so tired I could cry. Not lack of sleep tired, lack of energy tired. I’m typing this slowly while lying down – slowly because I can’t do anything quickly, plus don’t have the energy to press the keys very much.

I’m still getting over my cold and sore throat – I think the sore throat’s gone, but the blocked up nose and asthma are still lingering. On Monday I did an hour and a half extra and that was working as quickly as I could. Monday night all I could do was lie down because I didn’t have the energy to get up.

Then Tuesday wasn’t so bad, but I didn’t get the opportunity to take some overtime and knock off early. I thought I might today, but then I had a really busy afternoon. I should have stayed a bit longer, but I was reaching the stage where walking in a straight line was looking unlikely. It took me 15 minutes to do the 5 minute walk to my car.

So tonight I don’t have the energy to do anything at all. I know I’m going to be busy tomorrow morning, but hopefully I’ll get to take some time off this week, otherwise all I’ll do all week and all weekend is lie down recovering.

And this weekend we’re having a Rotaract community project tidying up the garden of a pre-school. I probably couldn’t do that much anyway, but at this rate I won’t even have the energy to go anywhere near the place. Which is beyond annoying.

Now I’m going to watch Teachers through the magic of 4oD and its entire channel back catalogue. With no adverts.
