Zooms in, Posts, Sleeps
As I had a grand total of three hours' sleep last night this will be as brief as word count allows so I can make up some zeds tonight.
Woke up at 2.30am gasping for a drink . Wandered into the bathroom, turned on the tap. To hear sounds of gasping pipes and gurgling water.
Turned on half the lights in the house in an effort to get downstairs successfully to find something which was NOT water to drink. Settled on Pepsi (not a good idea given the caffeine).
Woke up my husband in the process.
Staggered awake at 5.30am to discover the water still was not on.
Phoned the water company to report it, as they were unware that the outage stretched to the village.
No shower. No tea . Cranberry juice is lovely but I Really Wanted A Cuppa! Just about managed to cobble enough water into a cup to clean my teeth. Have suffered bed hair jokes all day because my drunken hedgehog spikes are a bit obvious.
Washing up dishes and washing laundry both had to wait until later in the day, after the pipes had slowly refilled.
Bus to work was a single decker, but at least one of the newer ones with leather seats and enough space for everyone.
Boss was off sick - she has flu (which would not improve her stress levels if she had chosen to come into work, I'm sure) - so what should have been a really busy day ended up being a really quiet one after all. I don't think I could have coped with boss on three hours' sleep just after new year so I was secretly rather grateful. She is a great boss but is driven and insistent at times and I was suffering severe LMF from being so tired today so might not have reacted well to that.
Washing up is done. Washing is done and half dry (will turn the dryer on again tomorrow as it's too late now.)
Off to bed now, still need to finish two articles tomorrow plus a load of other things. Oh well, keeps me out of mischief...
