Great start

I hope you all noticed the sarcasm dripping from my title. It would never do for anyone to go around thinking I’d had an actual genuine great start to my first day back at work…

So, I might as well not have bothered going to bed last night. I would probably have got as much sleep and at least that way I might have been able to get something productive done instead of tossing and turning and waking up every few hours because I was too hot or too cold or needed the loo. I think I managed about 4 hours of actualy sleep in the end, which wouldn’t be so bad if those hours were at least all in a row rather than in little half an hour and 45 minute bursts. Understandably I am now exhausted. Ugh. What a perfect start to the day. And now I have to go outside into the cold. It’s minus 8 out there people. That’s coooold!

It’s my sister’s birthday today. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t read this but just in case Happy Birthday Sis. Hope it’s a good’un!
It’s also Ukrainian Christmas Day today. I know this because my Grandad was Ukrainian. So Merry Christmas to any Ukranians who happen to stop by. And to anyone else who happens to celebrtae Christmas today as well. Orthodox Russians perhaps?

Right, I’m off to brave the cold now. Pray that the tram’s on time so that I don’t have to spend too long waiting for it…

I aten’t dead

I am exhausted though. Is it really only Wednesday? I feel like I’ve already lived through an entire week and I still haven’t managed to get through everything on my to do list.
Our work Christmas meal was cancelled so instead I did my Spanish homework last night and then went to the Christmas market with Jan and his friends. Tonigh I have Spanish until 9pm and tomorrow my floor is having their Christmas party. This doesn’t leave me much time for sorting out my room, wrapping presents (still not finished with that!), getting my last few Christmas cards written and posted and packing for England.
You can see why I haven’t managed to get everything done (or write any blogs this week – I wonder if anyone noticed I was gone?).

Only today and tomorrow left. I can do this…..

Meh

– I’m exhausted
– I have a headache…
– … and period pains
– There’s a huge spot on my chin
– I finished my book on the way to work this morning and had nothing to read on the tram home
– I’ve been home exactly 10 minutes and now I have to go out again to do the shopping
– I haven’t done this week’s reading for the Text Linguistics module
– There’s an exercise that we’re supposed to do after the reading. Funnily enough I haven’t done that either.
– I haven’t had a proper holiday since July 2007 (a weekend trip to the UK complete with 9 hours in Dublin    airport does not count as a holiday)

Thank God it’s Friday.
I think I need a drink….
