It astonishes me that in the various comments on my post about all those things I was doing to try and combat a bad night of restless legs, not one of you commended me for my novel use of a vibrator.

Or have all of you been using vibrators for Restless Legs Syndrome for years...?

What this living room needs is a carport/shed on the other side of its (external) western wall.

I have realised that my regular sitting spot is actually in a hot spot - the external wall is behind me, and it has no insulation and sends the heat straight on in! The whole wall radiates heat into the living room.

Insulation in the walls would make sense, but that's the sort of thing people need to think about before the place is built. And clearly, they did not.

Maybe this does need to be my next project. It's a biggie though.

Last Push On Those Bloody Curtains.

Now I am grumpy because I am having to sew again.

It doesn't help that this is in fact, a choice. I don't have to. But I can't get what I want in terms of comfort and beauty if I do not do some sewing.

I am frankly annoyed at myself for even caring enough about such temporal matters and I want to go and live in a cave.

Just woke up from a what I'd planned as a lie down, not a sleep. It's kind of twilighty out there - I think I've just given myself jet lag.

And suddenly I realised it was a bit too late at night for starting on anything else.

It has just occurred to me that five years after separation, volunteering my ex-husband to do some heavy lifting for mutual friends might be a source of amusement to some.

Endless, endless self improvement: planning renovations on my navel again.

Grr...aarrgh.

...and this is why I would never want to be a writer. I feel like I'm giving birth to a baby elephant.

And the damn things only supposed to be 150-200 words.

Sculpting granite with a toothbrush.

I might have slept well last night but I can't stop yawning.

If I can hold out against the urge to shut my eyes, I might be able to get my sleep time back to 1 or 2AM, which would be a great improvement on 3 to 4AM.

Today I am turning an opshop fishtank (that is not really the right proportions for a healthy fishtank) into a terrarium. At the moment I'm just scrubbing and cleaning the tank. I've got some moss and a small orchid to go in, and at some point I'll be adding in interesting bits of wood and stuff.

Oh and for those who are wondering: you're less likely to have problems with a fishtank where there's a lot of surface area because it enables oxygen exchange. So tanks with more width than height are preferable. But this one - a fancy octagonal shape - is more tall than wide. It's also fairly small, and small fishtanks need more attention than large ones as things go wrong more quickly in the smaller environment.

I have also been browsing for Ikea bookshelves, I feel it's time I treated myself. I am considering doing floor-to-ceiling(or as close as I can get) in here (the living room) with a gap for the telly and bridging above, because I will never be short of books.

Oh poop. I just realised that Invasion Day (aka Australia Day) is on Tuesday not Monday, which means I won't get homecare. And probably scuttles plans for a catch up with Wazza and Ecks.

And even though I had no other plans for Monday or Tuesday, I've now got public holiday induced cabin fever, where the mere fact that other people aren't going about their usual business makes me feel isolated and unsupported. (Many, many people will take Monday off).

I agree this means I am clearly unhinged.

I slept well last night, the weather is pleasant. Today I will be doing...whatever it is that I do.
