An Early Start [Jan. 27th, 2016|08:44 am]
Tony Grist
We had to get up a little earlier than usual this morning- so as to be ready to take my mother for a hospital appointment- and my brain came up with what it considered a brilliant plan to avoid oversleeping which was not to sleep at all.

Stupid brain!

I disagreed with it and argued back and finally dropped off in the early hours- and dreamed- as I often do- about a wonderful toyshop with toys I desperately wanted but which had disappeared from the shelf by the time I came to buy them. One of the shop keepers was John Cleese and I did a silly walk that impressed him.

While I wasn't sleeping the phone which I thought I'd lost scrambling under a fence at Dode starting beeping plaintively, telling me it was out of juice. It turns out it has spent the past three weeks on the bedroom floor tucked just out of sight under the valence of the bed. Or, at least, that's what the fairies would like me believe.

The weather is foul. The wind is howling and we've had a lot of rain overnight. I think what we're seeing here is the remnants of the storm that has been burying the Eastern United States in snow.

Our front path is under water- and I had to push my mother's chair through it, walking on the grass so as not to get my feet wet- which is awkward. The wind continues to bluster.

That does sound like rather a cool dream. Would be rather fun to see it produced as a short. ^_^

Yep, that was the storm's leftovers. Thankfully, we simply saw some rain (and we're high enough for flooding not to be a concern) and plenty of stiff winds, given they were audible through the double glazing, and caused the old style vent in the kitchen to turn into a turbine. =:)

Insomnia seems to be the vogue. *sigh* Barely slept on Monday morning, and only finally fell asleep this morning around 6am. (Not so unusual for me - I generally go to sleep somewhere around 3-5am anyway) Thankfully, I nonetheless awoke refreshed, and in the mood to catch a film I'd been wanting to see for a couple weeks now, The Danish Girl.

We live near the top of a hill. The water comes pouring past us and pools at the bottom of the drive but the house is in no danger of flooding.
