Tired Bloggers are Boring Bloggers

Is anyone else feeling like they need to curl in a ball and sleep for a year?

I am about done with winter and ready for a spring breeze to blow through my little world. 

I am looking forward to wearing thongs again (that's flip flops, people, NOT underwear made of string).

Of course, I will need to cut my toenails…which are currently 27cms long. Seriously.

And shave my….well, body. All of it. It's hairy up in here.

Every second Friday is my half day. That's when B finishes work early and I get half the day to write/shop/shop.  When he walks in the door he is greeted by the whirling dervish that is me getting the fuck out.

Tomorrow, I think he will be greeted by me whirling my dervish to the nearest bed.

I am so frickin' tired.

Anyhoo, that's the whole boring story right now. 

A dear friend sent me the below in an email and it did give me a little laugh. And then I passed out face first into the keyboard….

Night night, peeps.

The Wife Who Wines...

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Have been struggling with this myself this week – due to one of the boys being ill and a visitor needing to be up at sparrow fart to catch a plane. If there is one thing guaranteed to cause insomnia in me, it’s an early flight.

    Your bed is more important right now. Sweet dreams, pet.

    You could never be boring!

    I’ll try to send a warm breeze your way. x

    It’s funny reading this on the other side of the planet where summer is just winding down. I felt EXACTLY like you do this past winter. It was brutal and I was so ready to shave, pedicure and get my pasty white self into the sun.

    Hang in there. Hide under the covers for a while longer. Winter can’t last forever.

    I know how you feel. Am exhausted, with no out of the ordinary reason, other than…life…3 boys, blah blah blah, and all that other stuff on the iron ad (and I’m not even a single Mum!). Hopefully it will end soon, and I will be able to stay up later than the kids.

    Oh, and I needed that morning vodka/berocca when they hijacked my day off!

    Oh Angie, I too am SO FUCKING TIRED! I can’t remember the last time I slept in, and I feel like I took it for granted way too much when I didn’t have kids. But I guess it makes no difference now as to how much sleep I got three years ago, because the only thing that matters now is that i am FUCKING EXHAUSTED every single day. Yay for me!

    I never thought I would be saying this so soon, being that I’m very early thirties, but fuck I wish I was younger! Maybe I’m getting too old for all this kid rearing business, which sucks because I want a few more kids yet!

    All I really want is a nice, long, uninterupted sleep. I hope you got yours, Angie! 🙂
