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. I’m glad to be home though, I don’t think I’ll be doing much tonight.  Maybe some games.  I’m thinking of starting to take some vitamins also.  Might perk me up a bit.  I’m pretty sure I’m lacking in some of them.  Any ideas on what is best to try or should I just go for those one …

Mind dumping

I started writing this Monday night but I just couldn’t finish it for some reason.  I have had a dark couple of nights mentally so this post might end up a bit of a mash-up.  Anyway, here goes… The weekend didn’t go according to plan.  The weather was terrible so stargazing was off the table.  We’ll probably go further afield next weekend which will hopefully bring us better luck.  It is either that or just driving until we can find some clear sky!  I guess patience is a virtue when it comes to the perfect conditions we are looking for. We were also supposed to have a cooker delivered and installed on Monday.  However, it turned out they could not install it where we want it despite being reassured it would be fine by the sales staff!  We’ve received a full refund and have taken our business elsewhere.  Hopefully this …
