I’ve never really been much of a threat to the great thinkers of our time. This is especially the case when I’m tired. Today I’ve tried to function on 2 hours sleep in the last 24 hours. The results have verged on spectacular:

  • The picture above was mini cake attempt 3. No idea why they refused to rise this time. The first attempt I used Pea Protein Powder rather than Self-Raising Flour. The second attempt had the right ingredients but not necessarily the right ingredients for a cooking time of 2 hours – completely forgot about them.
  • Took the dog out into the garden for his morning constitutional. After a few minutes he was missing. Had a 5 minute panic until I realised the poor dog was still in the house..
  • Put dog food into the cat bowls.
  • Poured orange juice over my cornflakes.
  • During my early morning workout I actually fell asleep for a few seconds while trying to do floor presses.
  • Had to go to a meeting but put the wrong postcode in the sat navigation so my 15 minute journey took 50 minutes.
  • When I did get to my meeting and took my coat off. T-shirt inside out.
  • The final straw was opening a tin of Tuna to make our son a Tuna and Sweetcorn Sandwich. Funny looking Tuna more like sliced peaches in syrup. Can’t remember buying them…..

So today has been one of those days. Plenty of mistakes but no damage. In fact it’s been quite a lucky day. I posted a while back about stupidly booking two different sets of concert tickets for the same night. I spoke about our son deciding to see Ozzy rather than Thunder, but asking me to wait until the last minute as “this is Ozzy we are talking about”. Well today we found out the Ozzy concert has been put back a few weeks due to a bad case of Ozzy flu. So next week it’s Thunder. So yes I’m tired, very tired but kinda happy. Bring on Tuesday…..

  1. When days like this happened to either of us, my daughter used to say it was because we were on a different planet where the “laws” were not the same as we were conditioned to believe. Most often the thought was so ridiculous it made us laugh. For instance, in this world you were in today, people only sleep 2 hours and are awake 22, cake is made with pea protein instead of flour and are ready whatever time you remember to take them out of the oven, dogs can materialize in or out at will, cats are able to eat dog food with no problems, people eat cereal with orange juice instead of milk, we can teleport ourselves to any destination instantaneously, it is the style to wear clothes inside out, etc. What a great adventure! Another day, another planet…or, parallel universe, as the case may be. 😊 My Love to you, Dear. πŸ’ž
    PS: Oh! And don’t forget to give yourself credit for all the myriad of wonderful things you do “right”!

  2. Thank YOU for the chuckles!!! I wish I could post a picture in this comment, for I would love for you to see the ugliest loaf of bread I have ever made in my life! It was onion yeast bread for a friend’s birthday, and I have made it at least 100 times before, but this time I altered the recipe ever so slightly … and it looked for all the world like a dead groundhog! Get some sleep tonight, my friend!

      1. My granddaughter has a friend with Aspergers, and I remember one time … the girls were probably around 10-11 years old … and Becca came in with Miss Goose, looked around, and said, “Grannie, this is the first time I’ve seen your kitchen really clean — good job!” πŸ™ƒ

      2. To an extent I agree, but then there is the matter of being kind and compassionate, and often if we speak precisely what is on our minds, we hurt another person needlessly. But yeah, it was funny! πŸ˜‰

  3. On the bright side – at least the day was not dull! πŸ™‚

    I don’t mean to rub it in. Dull days may probably seem like a Godsend sometimes huh? πŸ˜‰

    Don’t worry about too little sleep – that’s what work meetings are for! πŸ˜‰ ( Remember your pajamas next time).
