I am not sleeping - surprise, surprise!
I am one of the luckiest people in the world in that I 'normally' sleep very well. I fall asleep in the middle of conversations and in TV advert breaks and then rest happily for between 8-10 hours a night. It is bliss.
However, the first night that Ivan is away on a trip I normally don't sleep too well, but it settles down; this time however, I am still not sleeping.
I am thinking, planning, thinking, renovating, thinking, and aching - oh yes, don't forget the aching. My feet are sore and I have discovered new muscles that I didn't know existed.
Today I am off to buy some paint and take Elizabeth to university - but at the moment I am indulging in a few minutes in bed, watching the news and writing this Blog.
Aah life is great in the 21st Century.
