Yes I went to bed at a reasonable time.

Yes I slept well.

I was awake from 4:30-7:30ish, but that's not wildly unusual.

Yes I did set the alarm for a reasonable time.

And yes, it did wake me up. Enough that I felt quite confident turning it off for a few moments peace just before I got out of bed.

Famous last words.


It's 3PM and my breakfast cup of tea is still not cold. Gah!

So now I'm trying to kick-start my self so I can actually get a few things done and call it a day at a reasonable time rather than still be doing daytime things at midnight and perpetuating this insane Saturn-appropriate sleep cycle.

For a long time after I first got sick, I used to clap my hands really loudly from time to time. It was an action that arose from gut instinct I think (a bit like rocking), as a way to get a sense of focus and attention back.

*clap clap clap*

Right. Now. If I can keep this applause going, I might be able to get myself showered and dressed by 3:30. Then I can get to the letterbox (not going to the front fence in pjs, not getting dressed without being clean). Then I can make two phone calls by 4PM that need to be done in office hours, then if I'm feeling okay, maybe I can scoot out on Bazza and/or do one of several Important Things here.

It's like clapping if we believe in fairies!

I do believe in the Spoon Fairy, I do I do!

*applauds your efforts*

I have reached the stage of going to the compost or rubbish bins, cleaning the outdoor kitty litter etc in my dressing-gown. I think I'm the 'crazy' in my neighbourhood. At least you get dressed to go outside! *applauds that*

Ah but you're virtually a country gal!

I'm damn nearly in the middle of a shopping centre and opposite a car park.

I know someone who knows someone who has a serious number of acres out in the bush proper, who's so spendidly isolated she wanders round her property in naught but a shirt to avoid sunburn on the shoulders. Bliss!

I think we encode our own lines in the sand. for some its the postbox in our pjs. For others its our knickers on our heads. I like the clap to get your own attention... that's very zen.
