I had the worst night’s sleep of my life, last night.
Whilst at the park yesterday with Brenton’s cousin, her husband and their two small *retch* ..ahem. Two small *urp* .. ugh.. children, we had coffee at 2.30pm. I knew it was a bad idea.
On Friday I had a coffee at about lunch time and an hour later was experiencing symptoms of anxiety. Not just a normal coffee buzz, but full blown, deeply uncomfortable anxiety. I had a stressful day at work as well, but nothing to warrant this. I am still not sure if it was the coffee or the fact that it was the first day in about three weeks I hadn’t taken codeine, so I decided to not have any of either for a while. I still haven’t had any codeine (or, incidentally, anxiety), so it was probably that.
Anyway we had this coffee at the park. It didn’t cause anxiety but it did cause a lot of trouble getting to sleep. Then, just as I was finally getting drowsy, Guppy decided to eat some of her yummy, crunchy, exceptionally noisy (at 1am) food. When, after ten minutes, she showed no signs of being satiated, I moved her bowl to the next room.
In protest she began licking herself. With every lick, the bell on her collar would tinkle. When, after ten minutes, she showed no signs of being clean enough, I got up and removed her collar.
At this point Teddy (sleeping in the lounge room with my mumm) wondered what all the fuss was about, so pitter-pattered into my room to check it out. He pitter-pattered around my room for a while, then started jumping up against the side of my bed to see if I was awake and wanted to go play or something.
ANIMALS ARE THE WORST.
Then again, they do look like this (kinda hard to actually hate them):
So, 3am and I finally got to sleep, only to start dreaming about a certain Liberal National Party leader. A leader about whom I feel very strongly in the negative.
VERY STRONGLY IN THE NEGATIVE.
Only in my dream he was kind of younger, and fitter, and smarter, and sexier, and wearing less clothes, and flirting with me, and, oh god. and.. oh god. I was flirting back, and.. *retch*
Please excuse me.
