Sleep proves elusive before Thursday.

Last night seemed so relaxed but no matter how much I tried sleep eluded me for hours.

When at 5.15 I still could not sleep Richie gave me a lorazepam and that seemed to do the trick and I slept until about 12.30 when I was awake again.

I do feel that I have taken a pill; it makes me feel slightly weary of everything which is not how I usually feel or how I like to feel.

It is a sort of seedy feeling as if you have rented out your body and are not sure the temporary tenants did not trespass where they should not have.

Think opiates always give you that feeling, the feeling of being lived by proxy that is why I do not usually like to use these pills.

It was just did not want to go totally without sleep especially as I want to be relaxed for the big appointment tomorrow.

So may take one of those lorazepam tonight but then right away and not when the night is near over like this morning.

No wonder I feel so seedy today, as I did not sleep for the full time that I could have slept.

The day has been bright and sunny, the blue sky is now get ting cloudier as the afternoon comes to an end here, and it is 16.35 here.

This is why I hate the time being changed as we can never fully appreciate these fine autumn afternoons and evenings.

This is end of the afternoon, the blue tits have been stocking up on peanuts, so have the parakeets, today eating and not squabbling with each other.

Have to get Richie to top up the nuts soon so as to keep the birds well fed; they do need it now there are fewer insects.

Love to see the birds at the bird feeder, realise more these days how much I still miss the beautiful wildlife in Trinidad.

Had not realised that there were over 30 species of lizards in Trinidad and as many types of frogs.

Also an amazing amount of birds a real treasure chest of wildlife, thankfully they realised what a little gold mine they were sitting on so the wild life in Trinidad is being protected now.

Sadly not in time to save the ocelot, there are no wild ocelots roaming free in Trinidad but it is the place to visit if one is a wild life enthusiast.

Geez, we both lacked sleep last night! I woke up at 2am and couldn't sleep much before 6am...I think I was too excited about starting my knitting, lol..I told you I'm like a kid sometimes! I have some emergency tranquilizers, but I hate taking them, I know what you mean about that seedy feeling...I feel lethargic and dumb for 48 hours after taking just 1/4 of one. But if you need it, I agree, take it before you go to bed so you're not groggy for tomorrow...what time is the appointment?

Hi Rain,

Thanks for coming by, so your knitting and my appointment tomorrow stopped us both from sleeping.
Think I will take the pill well in advance tonight.
Hope tomorrow is a good day.

The more I get to know you, I see how much we have in common!
Anticipation = No Sleep!
Mind you, on a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say your appointment is a 20 and my knitting, well, probably a 7, ha ha!

Dear Herrad,
allready within Thursday I'd like to wish you and to everyone else close to you, all the very best for this day.

Oh Herrad, It's the ANTICIPATION of your possible imminent emancipation. Your "get out of jail free" card - that's what is keeping you awake. Thursday will be a busy and exciting day, and possibly also a bit tiresome and maybe not as fun as you want it to be. BUT it is a new day, and one more closer to getting outside again!
