Musings and Snoozes

Seasonal Insomnia!

on December 27, 2012

So here I am at 5am, having not slept since 2 oclock. Lovely. Now I need to decide whether to get up and snooze later or try and sleep now but miss half the day by not waking up til lunchtime. I’m hoping for the former, hence posting here.

Christmas has been lovely so far. I woke up at quite a respectable 7.30 on Christmas Day. Gone are the days of awake at 5, up at 6, though this is quite nice as it means the day isn’t half over by 8am. Jon and I opened each others presents here, which was lovely as it’s our first christmas together, both living together and being married. I then headed off to mum’s and he headed off to his parents-I’m not quite ready to spend Christmas day away from home yet! At mum’s there was a very fine breakfast of cinammon pancakes (a break in tradition due to my body’s sudden aversion to scrambled egg!), followd by more present opening. I got some beautiful presents from family and friends (including a very fine pair of midnight blue velvet dungarees from Jon-what more could a girl want?!), so I’ve done pretty well. More importantly all the gifts I’ve given this year seem to have gone down well, especially the Track Day that Jon and I bought mum. I can’t wait to go watch her do that! Christmas Day itself was very quiet, as it’s just me and mum, but it was actually quite nice to just laze about and relax, especially as the build up to Christmas seems to have been particularly manic this year! We had a lovely dinner of venison stew about 5oclock ish and then settled in to an evenings christmas TV viewing, from Doctor Who (victorian themed and corsetry-perfect) to Downton Abbey (poor Cousin Matthew). A thoroughly lovely day all round.

Boxing Day was lovely and chilled as well, not to mention mostly spent eating! We went to Jon’s parents in the afternoon and spent many a happy hour eating more lovely food and watching How to Train Your Dragon, which was great. Consequently I now want a pet dragon.

Today will in theory be spent attacking the sales with Mum, though this is assuming I don’t fall asleep and miss them entirely. I do wish it were already daylight-I’d be much more inclined to get up and do things, or at least go out for a wander. The dark and wet is less than tempting though. Still, I shall go get my book and if I finish that then it should take me nicely up til dawn…
