Something different again

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.

Last night I gave up on attempting to sleep and scrapbooked for a few hours. I love digital scrapbooking. I could sit in bed, have my laptop and listen to Josh Groban. I achieved about 30 pages of our LA trip - felt good to remember relaxing.

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.

Beverly you are discovering the joys of renos I see, ouch! I can totally relate and feel for you.

It is so much fun to have our new technology, the things we can do are surreal at times. Enjoy some time off, you've worked hard for it!
