Things That Only Happen When You're Tired!

I'm tired. Its my own fault.. very late night (but did play cello.. weird but true).. But I;ve been noticing myself do strange things all day as a result.. thought I'd be all vulnerable and share:
1- No spacial awareness
2- Dribbling food (was only soup, don't think anyone noticed)
3- Lack of prioritisation (talk to visitor/ talk to colleague/ talk to God... errr)
4- Inability to finish sentence
5- Inability to remember wher you are in a conversation
6- Inability to multitask..

and to cap it all: I just found myself reading the emails that I had already trashed and trying to deal with them!

I think we should all have a holiday.

Heh - I'd be up for that!

Other things that I find happen:

Thinking people are talking to/about you when they're not.
Hallucinating in the corner of your vision.
Full-on Hallucinating.
Tingly fingers.
Slow-moving eyes - can't follow things.

Recommendation: sleep :oD

I can add to that too....

- you go into the bathroom to put your dirty pants in the washing basket, lift the lid of the toilet and put pants down the loo.

- you put random foodstuffs away in the wrong cupboards in the kitchen

- you miss your junction on the M1 and have to take a different route to your destination. Can't say I've experienced this one, not being a driver, but I think I know someone who has....???

Making tea, take sugar out of cupboard, stop and wonder what your doing put it back in again and then stare at tea wondering who you made it for?

Walked downstairs to get something from office, got halfway across hall floor, stopped wondered what i was doing then realised i was fetching something, couldn't and still can't remember what.

Becoming more obsessive and grumpy about stupid things, or go from high to low with more horriblness than is right

Tendancey to believe even the worst of accusations

When making coffee, you pour the hot water into the sugar bowl.

Somebody comes around and nicks the one key you are looking for on your keyring.

2 x 10 = 21

You seriously consider phoning someone you had an argument with 6 months ago to try and resolve the conflict at 1am.

What sort of day has it been?

Hello from a grey and somewhat subdued New York City. It's about twelve hours since we've known the outcome of the election cycle, and I don't entirely know what to think. So, what follows are mumblings- inspired by the things we have been up to for the last week.

It's a big place
We drove about a thousand miles and barely left New York State. The USA is huge and has vast swathes of natural resource and so I think I am beginning to understand why it doesn't have an international narrative like much of Europe.  In that big space we definitely saw more Trump signs than Clinton ones, more conservatism than liberalism.  In eight days we saw three minutes of news about affairs overseas (and no, we were not watching Fox News). Anyone you mention Brexit to looks at you like you are asking about a new drug- so the frame of international reference is negligible outside of the Beltway,.

It's lost a lot
One of the things about looking at a map rather than a guidebook when…

Falling out with Football

Some of my earliest memories are of Sunday mornings. There was one which seemed to involve being in a big hall colouring pictures, but I didn’t much like that, so the memories that have stuck are of sitting outside. Now, I love outside, it calms me, so pretty much any outdoor activity would have held some thrall for my turbulent child self. But the family Sunday activity was football.
When I was very small my Dad played. He was past his glory days by the time I can remember. The cartilage in his knees had run out before the rest of his body- and so much of my memory of him was as he “ran the line”.I’m pretty sure he sometimes did that in wellies, but its been a long time.
Sunday football was part of our life. We would go to the game and then mum would join us as we had drinks at the social club next door. It’s why I drank beer from the age of eight and could snaffle my way through about a thousand calories of crisps in a sitting.
And then we would go home, have a massive roast and w…

What's Next? 8 ways to move on..

It is still early, only twenty four hours since many of us woke up to find that what we had hoped did not happen. The referendum, for many is lost, and the reaction is fierce. What follows are a few ideas of how to navigate the next wee while.
Be Real If this hurts, hurt. If it make us feel scared, be scared. Anger and blame are great displacements- and they have their moment (which is still now, don’t just squash it) - but get as close to the real feelings as you can. And take that moment to acknowledge that for many of us part of the challenge is that we are not used to getting our own way.
Be Kind If you are reading this, the outcome is worse for many other people. They may have voted for it, but they will suffer. Be kind. And be kind to those who are very fearful. Being an EU worker at this moment must feel pretty grim. Be kind.
Switch Off How many of us have run our phone batteries dry in the last 24 hours? The urge to check social media and keep abreast of what s going on is…
