Wednesday Night/Thursday Day
After being at my parents Wednesday afternoon, I went home via Safeway at 6pm. Got pizza, onion bhajis and milk. Went to bed at about 7pm to try to sleep till 9pm before work, but couldn't manage it as the kitchen/living room are above me and the flatmate was making a hell of a racket going backwards/forwards all evening.
Woke up at nine to find only half a pack of onion bhajis - which I'd bought for my lunch - and the entire pizza going into the oven so that my flatmate could eat it. Obviously, this made me cranky.
Fell asleep at work ALL night almost - sleeping for ten minutes every hour on my desk when we had a break, slept 35 mins out of my 40 min lunch break... Waking with enough time to eat the 4 mini onion bhajis that were left in the pack of 12 (!!!)and a tomato/herb cupasoup from the machine...
Got home 6:30am, was in bed by 7:30am and awake again at 10:30am after three hours sleep as my flatmate had visitors. They were very encouraging and I was glad they'd come to see him, but I went back to bed at 2pm intending to sleep and couldn't manage it. Didn't want to have to get up again so just laid there listening to the radio until 8pm when I dozed off for half an hour and had to wake up again to go to work...
Thursday Night/Friday Day
Work last night wasn't as bad - although I was dead tired, I only slept on a couple of eye breaks - this was because I was covering for duty obs for ten mins per hour, so it broke up my 'vacant stare at monitor' hourly pattern. I am going to leave my microwave here for my flatmate when I move the kitchen stuff out tommorrow - Steveo at work is giving me his Samsung one as he's having a new kitchen fitted. Timing couldn't be better!! This pleased me.
We got let out at 4:30am and I walked home in the dark. My team are an uncharitable bunch when it comes to lifts, even though they know I live on a park. To whit I encountered some moron walking his dog at 4:45 this morning. Big dog spotted me, barked and ran at me, so I ran into the brain injury unit carpark three doors down from me to hide lol! Got in at 5am after hiding from the dog and went to bed. Was asleep by 6am.
Just woke up at 3:30pm. Okay, so I've got nothing done today besides sleep, but I think I needed it. Going to stay up after work tommorrow morning to pack the kitchen anyway, and will be shifting it late afternoon.
By Wednesday at the latest, all my possessions will be gone from this flat. Flatmate has a visitation this coming monday to do paperwork, and another on my last Friday here. At least I am confident he'll be ok with this support now.

make you this way, but don't adopt bitterness.
It happens to us all. Cheer up.
