I didn’t sleep too well last night/today. After my night shift I got home suitably tired and headed straight to bed. As some of you may have noticed Autumn has arrived with a vengeance, but Hague had gone to sleep with the window open and the bedroom was freezing! He’d also wrapped himself up like a cute little caterpillar in the duvet so I had to wrestle with that before I could even attempt to get myself warmed up. Which took forever. Summer duvets and open windows are not a great combination when it’s chilly!
I did, of course, eventually nod off, with just the smallest of awakenings when Hague left for work. I had set my alarm for 2.45pm as a 12 hour shift was looming, but woke up just after 1, feeling utterly knackered and then tried fruitlessly to get back to sleep until after 3, by which time I really did need to get myself up and sorted. I was never going to conjure up a gourmet meal with time and energy against me and I had a wonderfully lazy meal. A tin of Asda SmartPrice vegetable curry and rice. The curry was 54p I think, and for a cheap tin, it wasn’t too bad! If I’d have had more time I’d have bulked it up with lots of lovely superfree veggies too, but the time I had whilst the rice cooked and the curry pinged was spent sorting out my food for work.
After eating, I headed up for a shower and had a pleasant surprise in the shape of a fleeting visit by Hague. Into the house, not the shower, heads out of the gutter please people ;o) He had popped home quickly to grab something to eat before rushing back out to work. I hadn’t expected to see him at all, so that put a bit of a smile on my face as I dragged myself out of the house to head to work. Damn I was tired. I could quite happily have eaten my dinner and gone back to bed for many more hours, but that’s not how bills get paid unfortunately.
Once again I was surplus to requirements during my bonus four hours and so rather a lot of time was spent in the tea room, eating.
When my shift proper started at 10pm, it was time for my first dinner, a simple pasta salad, yogurt and fruit.
I then proceeded to have several more breaks, and lots more nibbles.
Second dinner was a bit lighter, or it would have been if I didn’t decide to have some crisps too :o)
After putting away a small mountain of food, I didn't have anything else for my remaining breaks, except for liquid refreshment in the shape of water and tea. When I finally escaped I was feeling peckish again and had my second Benefit bar to tide me over whilst I slept.
I had been pondering heading out for a run or a strength routine, but weariness got the better of me and it was straight to bed (once I'd closed the window and warmed up. Again).

A long old day, and I was rather weary whilst at work. Probably why I munched my way through so many snacks! I really have enjoyed having the Nakd raisins this week, I blame WeightLossBitch and TOK for introducing them to me, the cherry ones I had today were just gorgeous. Such a shame you can't have raisins as a HeB really.
Another night shift is on the cards as I write this, but hopefully I'll be a bit more awake for this one!
