The hardest part of my day is…letting it end, giving in and going to bed.
Possibly because I have always been a night-owl (a pattern begun in babyhood with push-button-timing colic at 10pm every night, requiring hours of walking up and down).
Possibly because in the past I have so resented what I’ve had to spend my time doing in the day that I’m darned if I’m gonna waste time sleeping at night, instead doing what I want to.
Possibly because after two miscarriages, I felt that if I went to bed too late and too tired, there’d be no chance of any more for a while (course, it turns out I didn’t need to worry on that count, so this excuse is defunct – oh the irony)
Perhaps because so many awesome people show up on the internet when it’s late here in the UK.
Perhaps because (certainly observably with friends) after a certain hour, the chat slows down and becomes more meaningful.
And perhaps just because it’s a bad habit.
All I know is, I rarely go to bed while it’s still ‘today’…
I was late with these today because I’ve been so busy!
I got up super-early to help get Niece and Neff to school.
Then I napped.
Then I met with friends and their two small children and had fun in the park.
Then Husby joined us there for lunch.
Then we played more.
Then I went on an epic 1 1/2 hour fast walk of a little over 5 miles.
Then we went for a BBQ with friends at their house and ate and chatted the evening away.
Now I’m here, late and panicking about tomorrow’s …
Ten Things of Thankful blog hop
because I haven’t used the Inlinkz tool before and other co-hosts have reported that the links from last week still show up and I just don’t know if it’s going to reset and work nicely for me or not!
As predicted, my beautiful flowers from my Mum are now drooping sadly and chucking petals all over the place. I shall have to remember their former glory
Don’t forget Father’s Day on Sunday – if you know a chap who’s a Dad, celebrate with him; if you know a chap who can’t be a Dad who wants to be, be gentle with him – it’s gonna be a tough day.
I’m going to cheat with my personal ten things of thankful and save them for the weekend hop. Not because there aren’t any, but because I don’t want to repeat myself and I’m about to write the next post 😉
Mr Nobody who?
