I had two really late nights earlier this week, followed by early mornings. I have been really tired all week and never properly caught up on my sleep.

And.... it's going to be 4am on Sunday morning before I get to bed as well, as I'm playing for a twmpath on Saturday night and it involves a three and a half hour drive either side of the gig.

Folk n' Roll eh......
Welcome to my world, by the end of my working week I'm always fecked. Takes 2 days to get back to normal. I don't have a regular shift pattern during my week, its work driven, so I can't get into an early, late or night shift routine.

This week was especially bad, as long travelling days Monday & Tuesday, not physically demanding, but mentally tiring.

Thursday was an early start with a beast of a physical working day, not helped by a crap nights sleep into Friday, down to the various aches and pains.

Still I'm out tonight to a mates 50th birthday drinks, even though I can't drink like I used to, but its in walking distance, so no car required.

Just got home and unloaded the PA system from the car and put it away. 190 mile round trip to play for a gig in Bangor. I need my bed!

Woke at 9.30 and couldn't get back to sleep. Now sat with a cup of tea, thinking I'll have a lazy morning before I join a group of local canicrossers for a run this afternoon.

Saw this on a T-shirt yesterday:

Eat well
Exercise lots
Die anyway.

Definitely an early night coming up Mav!

No hangover is a bonus then. I have no tolerance for alcohol, a single pint of beer is as much as I can cope with. Two pints is a guarantee of a hangover.

Had my run this afternoon, in good company, and feel much better for it.

Blimey, slept in after 7.30 today, must have needed it.

Helped knowing there's no school run to do as its half term.

Still wandering round tired, must have been all that Dad dancing we did

Ah, so that's why the supermarket was full of badly behaved little gits this morning. Was wondering why they weren't in school. Once you don't have kids at home any more you tend to forget the dates to look out for.
