It’s all been a little quiet for me over the past week or so – I’m trying to find my groove again and gear up for the rest of the year. It’s been a bit of a slow start for me, to be honest. I’m finding it hard to deal with insomnia when my mind refuses to shut up when I’m trying to get myself to sleep. I’ve got a few remedies lined up so I’m going to see what works best over the next week or two. When I was at Uni doing my MA I had terrible insomnia – trying to sleep but staying awake in bed until 4am or 5am sometimes, trying to do battle with my mind and settle off to sleep. It’s just a bad habit I’ve got and very easy to slip into a bad routine when you’re working from home.
Anyway, apart from that, the past week mostly involved receiving sale bargains in the post, having another article published in The Hearing Times, starting to cook my own food again with Dan (we rely on my parents far too much, and decided that this has to change), reading, appreciating the small things, watching Charmed and random films with friends and Dan, making lists and taking photos. My 366 Days project is up and running on Tumblr, so head over if you want to see me make a fool of myself in a Lush face mask.
