  • Mood:

I really hate not being able to sleep.

Nights are too short at this time of year as it is. At 3am it's getting noticeably lighter. At 3.30am, the first bird starts up. By four, they're all at it. They've generally calmed down by five, but by then it's very definitely too light. At seven or so, our neighbours and their friends hold loud conversations outside the house next door which are all too audible through the open, because of the heat, windows. They don't talk, they bellow. And if I'm extra lucky, their dog will make strange strangled yelping sounds, in which it is being tutored by the chavette next door. I'm out of sleeping tablets, too, because I get only 20 every 28 days; and, now that I'm accustomed to them, it's rather often taking two of them to get me to sleep, not one. Ten days' guaranteed sleep every four weeks is not enough, I tell you.

Roll on Autumn.
