I Sleep. And I Sleep Like A Log.

Since starting my new job, I sleep like a dead donkey. Seriously. Nothing can rouse me. Except a small child calling "Mama, mama." Nothing can raise me! Nothing.

An old flatmate used to go out late and come home early the next morning. Like 6am early. An Irish friend of hers taught her the adage, "I'll sleep when I'm dead."

Alas, I am not of that ilk. If I was out on the turps and caught sight of the time, and it happened to be beyond one or two in the AM, I was outta there - I was like Cinderella. I hated the thought of messing up the day ahead and being Crankelstiltskin because I hadn't had enough beauty sleep.

I love me some sleepytime.

I love those sleep positions. Apparently I'm fun and fantastic at parties! I wonder if that still counts if you never leave the house after 6pm? Like, if you're fun and fantastic at 10am making the fruit kebabs for the three-year-olds?

I'm a sleeper too. I'm out. Like I've been hit over the back of the head with a saucepan.

Used to be a heavy sleeper, now I stir quite a bit. Stupid anxiety!

Luckily Abigail sleeps around 14 hours overnight, so I usually get around 8-9 solid hours too. I can't complain, even if it is interrupted.

Um, imagine staying awake for 10 days? Vomit.

I dream of sleeping again ... aaah the irony. I love me zzzzz's too. I used to be a party animal and watch the sun come up ... now, come 10.30pm I'm heading for the door...that's if I ever left...

Wow, giraffes only sleep in 5 and 10 minutes increments? They seem such calm creatures, must just be really stinkin tired!!

I am a bit of a run home because I don't want to be tired the next day kind of girl too :-)
