I have a love hate relationship with sleep. I love it when I am asleep, but I fight so hard to stay awake! I have been like since I was born (I think??, well thats my mum tells me). I remember still being awake at midnight while everyone else was snoring in bed. I used to find being the only one awake, scary and lonely as a child.
But now I relished in it...
My husband and children are fast asleep. I am fully awake, even though I am tired and exhausted after a busy day. My head is throbbing and I can’t stop yawning. But yet I am sitting here on the computer reading blogs, listening to music with a glass of red in my hand thinking of editing more of my pictures for tomorrow’s blog post or maybe reading another chapter in my book. I just don’t want to sleep; I am enjoying the peace and solitude.
Once I give into sleep I will awake into another day of chaos, where everyone wants and needs something from me. I prefer these moments I am enjoying on my own right now. And I don't want to give them up!
