Tough but not that tough

This week was tough for me but not as tough as it has been if that makes sense. I am still feeling tired every night when I finish work and even dropped off early last night!  I am managing to get more sleep but still averaging around 4-6 hours a night.  I did have one 8 hour sleep but I felt worse after it.  Don’t know how that works!

Amazing weekend

It is hard to describe how I am feeling after the weekend. All I know is that I am so proud to have been part of it all. The atmosphere was amazing and the real sense of togetherness.
