I recently posted about writing fatigue, having suffered fatigue in general these past few weeks. I fell asleep after a film on Friday night, it finished before Midnight and I had been relaxing since 4pm. I woke up at 5:30 and again at 10:30 and eventually Mr G woke me up at 2pm and I still felt like I could have slept longer.
It was a friend’s birthday Friday, another one yesterday and I had already sent an RSVP to a joint 60th and 40th Wedding Anniversary Party.
I decided I only had the energy for one event and missed seeing all my friends and the birthday girl in the pub yesterday afternoon. Not that we have a lot of bar money left since going to the new Home store on Friday!
Before I got myself ready, I had time for a spot of email catch up and some writing. I realised as my mind was wandering off task that I might have slight cabin fever…. which seemed crazy as I had been out at work all week and Friday Mr G and I myself spent the whole afternoon out shopping for the home and garden! We had a friend pop round and see us in the garden too, another friend was over at ours on Thursday – so it is not even as if we were suffering each other’s company!
But it had been a week since I did anything. I am sociable or duvet ridden – extremes with barely an in between. Much as I felt it a great effort to get ready to go out, I had the perfect poetry dress in mind and I got ready without any hitches.
Once I was on the road I realised it had been ages since I had seen the friends I would share the party night with, everybody apart from me has been abroad since I last saw them too. Lots of stories and despite posting pretty much every step and event on social media they asked how my writing was going.
All I needed to do was brush off the cobwebs and mingle!
It was a great night celebrating with Glenis and Mick.
