I’m tired. So tired. I’ve had a week where the higher beings didn’t look down on me in a friendly way, instead choosing to sit there smugly, enjoying tea and ignoring my inability to enjoy myself and control situations in which I found myself. Maybe they put bets on whether I’d survive till the end of the week, I know not.
All I really want to do is go to bed, snuggle up under my duvet and begin reading my spankingly brand new book [thank you muchly – I will bow down and worship at your feet but please don’t make me kiss them] until my eyes get heavy and I drift into the sleep of the exhausted.
I’m waving my fluffy, sparkly, disco-balled pen around my head. It’s mesmerising. If I could do it forever I would. Thank you – *gushes*.
Ten years ago I would have balked at the idea of staying in on a Friday night. Now I just shrug and smile, safe in the knowledge that I’m getting old.
My brain begs for sleep. So I give you this [because I like to punish my brain – it does me so much damage, I feel the need to punish it] from here …
