Dear Diary ….

….. It’s Thursday – yesterday – and it’s not going well, I’m afraid.

Had a good night’s sleep. Woke up, had breakfast, sat on sofa with a coffee and, uncontrollably, fell deeply asleep.  It was 9 a.m.  What?!!  Completely unprecedented and totally different from the normal me.  Throughout the day I’ve had to force myself to keep moving – a bit of shopping, some time on the exercise bike – but at every other time, whenever relaxing, tsunamis of tiredness have crashed over.  Something strange is happening.  No idea what’s causing it and I hope it’s temporary.  A regrettable result: inspiration at the keyboard has been around zero.  So that’s for another day.

Anyway, just had an early dinner and will be climbing under the duvet in a couple of hours, hoping for recovery deep in the arms of Morpheus.  I’ll be in touch ….
