Waking In The Afternoon

In case you hadn’t guessed by my absence, I’ve been at work on an eleven days before having a couple of days to relax (during which I was encouraged to sleep & then taken for dinner by my lovely Howard Bear). Slept in until early afternoon on my second day off.

I know, I know… How lazy. But I think it means I’m relatively caught up on sleep for now, which is incredibly nice as I’ve been unfortunately irritable over the past couple of weeks due mainly to tiredness. For this I apologise to everybody.

We also had to fix my car battery before we went shopping on Sunday because somehow it had run dead, which is worrying as nothing appears to have been left on. Of course, that could mean the electrics are still faulty (gee, thanks previous car owner).

In case you hadn’t guessed by the montage I made in yesterday’s post, I have had a lot on my mind lately. A lot of it hasn’t been my fault and whenever I get to that comfortably numb point something or someone happens again to throw me right off kilter.

It happened in that week after new years with that message that he probably never meant, because that’s the only way I can explain it without hurting all over again and driving myself insane. Besides, if he’d meant it he would have told her the truth, finally ended things the way they should have been ended and turned up to tell me how he actually feels no matter the time of day or where I was.

And yeah, if that happened he’d maybe have a chance.
