Ahh Sleep


Lately I've not been getting enough sleep. I seem to stay up later and later, whereas once I was one of those people who went to bed around 9:30pm, lights out by 10pm. I'm blatantly flouting my own rules and staying up 'til midnight. I miss the sleep. And I am grumpy in the mornings. I hate being grumpy.

Part of the problem is that I've started reading again. I've not been into reading in the last few weeks, but now I've hit my stride and I'm back into the books.

I've finished one and into the next. It's my plan to get through the backlog of books on my bedside before the year is out. It's not a resolution people, it's just a plan.

I have the same problem. It is 11:20 and I am blogging, Face booking then I will shower and read in bed... I REALLY should be in bed MUCH earlier - but then when do we fit in our fun hey?

I am having the same problem. Get distracted crafting, then go to bed and read. Sometimes its after 2am when I turn the lights out. I blame the holiday season for my lax approach to sleep.

I need to put the reading material, the last wash up, the last wash out, the run around the windows and close / open them with a view to the next day's forecast ... and all those other jobs aside to get more sleep. My 5am wake-up alarm is a tough call at the moment.

It is a really hard balance to strike, but reading is, I agree, essential.

My plan is to get more sleep....I've done it a few nights now and am amazed at the lack of grumpiness....I was CRANKY! I am trying to read more, too....it is a tough balance because the often the only time we have to read is when we've planted our bodies in bed.
