Sleep deprived ... again!!!
My goal to get enough zzzzz's for tomorrow has been severely scuppered by my inability to head to bed at a reasonable hour! I believe - or so an internet search has suggested - that I am suffering from what is called "sleep procrastination". And the culprit - or should that be culprits - is purported to be electrical devices and our inability to step away from them!!! However, I think for me it's more a question of trying to desperately find time to just "be"!!! Or what you might call - for some reason I am hesitant to type the phrase - "me time"! As the single parent of two very lively boys each with some additional challenges to add to the chaos, I find that I rarely get a moment to myself unless it's at stupid o clock!!! So here I am posting at ... well, let's just let's say the wrong side of midnight!!! Right now, I am feeling extremely relieved that I remembered to stock up on coffee ... !!! A feat in itself having forgotten a few bits of shopping!!! Chaos won out again when a small dose of organisation, i.e. a shopping list could have reduced it!!! But there's always next time!!! And, if I had a £1.00 for every time I had thought that, well, the finances would be a lot less challenged!!!
