No sleep til... sometime sunday?
The steroids are at it again. Exacerbated by the fact it is warm in London right now and windows need to be open at night - so traffic, foxes mating and cats fighting form the soundtrack of my sleep, or non-sleep, as it turned out.
Up at 1.30am, then again at at whenever dawn was breaking (4ish?) and then didn't really get back to sleep after that. Feel groggy and slurred this morning as a result. Have managed to get the broadband working and do a smidgeon of work, but for now it's time to drag myself through the rest of the day.
A friend is visiting over lunchtime so it will be really nice to see to her and meet her six month old baby. I just hope I don't fall asleep on them!
R chose to sleep in the spare room last night as he had to rise at 5 today anyway for some delivery work he's scored. So I'm glad he wasn't lieing next to me cursing my insomnia as much as I was otherwise I may have been single this morning. He's driving an HGV for the first time since his test last year. Round the narrow streets of London town. He was a little apprehensive but I've seen him master a forklift in under 30s so I'm sure he, and our streets, will survive.
In the meantime, not sure whether to up the dose of the new sleeping pills tonight to make sure I get a good night's kip in before planning to hit the office again tomorrow (I'm taking the 3.75g dose of the new pills, instead of the full dose of 7.5g) or let nature take its course and see what happens. Don't want to spend the next three weeks getting off the pills again, but then I do need sleep.
It's a dilemma.
And one I am too fuzzy to contemplate right now.
