Drained

So last night was the second night of not sleeping properly. I feel tired during the day but as soon as my head hits the pillow, bam my brain goes into overdrive.  It is not even anything in particular.  Could be ideas to fix bugs in software at work I’d recently been working on, plans to do other things in my spare time or just random wandering through my past.  I hope I can break this cycle soon.  I am finding it really hard right now to find the energy. I’m still getting headaches too.  Not as bad as they have been but still there nonetheless.  I’m waiting for new glasses in about a week so hopefully that will help although my prescription is not that different albeit from 5 years ago at the last test.  Yes, I know, I should do it yearly.  I have no excuse.  I need …

Tiredness returns

Last night was a waking nightmare for me.  I think I saw almost every hour of the clock.  I felt shattered when I went into the office this morning and wasn’t sure I could make it through.  A couple of cups of tea later, some minor bug fixes and new developments completed though and I was sailing.  Around half 4 I started to flag again but considering the lack of sleep and the random pains I don’t think that is too bad.  I spent the last half hour updating notes, workflows and tickets.

Back on the virtual saddle

One good thing to come out of my virtual immobilisation – getting back into Warcraft.  It has been so long that everything feels (mostly) fresh.  I forgot how much I loved the story of it all.  I think Blizzard have stepped it up a notch with this expansion.  The intro quests alone feel epic.  It is good to be back. My chest is still hurting.  Sometimes I forget about it then get up too quick and boom there it is!  Having said that the weekend seems to have gone slowly for once.  Not that I am complaining but it does feel kind of eerie.  Perhaps it is not sleeping that heavily (except for when I’ve had some pain killers.)  I’ve always been a night owl so around 5 hours max is usually good for me.  Unless it is the weekend and sometimes I make up for it!  Not much chance …
