Yes, yes I know I'm being a really cheery soul at the moment and the reason for this? Well I discovered the A + S's brood are coming down in August for a trip somewhere with J + T's brood. I tried to book the day off but as the guy who usually covers for me has already booked that week off I can't have that day off as they would be no one to cover the phone. Downside of being such a small department. Sigh........... That's the second time that I have missed seeing all my nieces and nephews thanks to work. Hopefully third times the charm he :-) Otherwise I will start to get very annoyed.
Oh well maybe something will start to go right one of these days.
The trip home last night was oh so fun. Not!!!!!!! A trip of 25 minutes on a clear run turned into a nightmare 1 hour and 20 minute trip. As you can imagine in this heat I had a really large sense of humor failure and felt extremely yucky by the time I got home. Especially after the the majority of the time was spent being stuck on one two mile stretch of road. Now if they had been a accident or something I could have understood what was causing the delay, a fire, a hole appearing in the road Aliens landing etc all would have been annoying but acceptable. But noooooooooo!!! There was absolutely no reason for this monumental traffic jam. It just seemed to be caused by sheer weight of traffic and the high percentage of stupid drivers who seem to work at this end of Nottingham. ( by the way not excusing myself from that classification because I've done some dumb things myself in the past, although I'm not admitting to anything specific and if you've got any evidence it's faked Honest :-).
Well I'm still feeling shattered at the moment. I think I need to start getting to bed earlier or it's all the stress at the moment. Which would be strange if that was the cause because stress usually causes me trouble getting to sleep not making my feel like I'm about to drop off to sleep. Well I suppose it could be that I've subconsciously decided to be difficult with myself and swap 'symptoms' as it were. Who knows, who knows??
