My sleep cycle has gone all wonky. Having gone to bed at 6 yesterday morning I didn't get up til 2ish yesterday afternoon, which is a sensible amount of sleep really but all in the wrong place. Had a nice day yesterday though. Spent the day itself mostly pottering: geeking and reading HP. Christened the new wok with a rather good chinese (OK so it used bottled sauce) - thanks again Paul, having cooked with it it's now even clearer what a wonderful wonderful thing it is. Tried and failed to make it to SW, but did weigh self and get the graphs updating again. OK so that wasn't a very nice bit really. The horrid truth being even horrider than feared. Though that's definitely the heaviest time of day - I was 3 lbs lighter at bedtime and another 2 lighter this morning - shame that doesn't count :-) Will see how I'm doing next week anyway.

A handful of people came over yesterday evening after hearing that the Carlton wasn't open. We talked for a while, and then since we were all really dopey it seemed like a film might be a better idea and we watched Shrek and laughed lots (OK and went *awww* and in my case maybe cried a bit, films shouldn't be allowed to use Hallelujah as soundtrack to sad bits OK). And as it finished we realised Breakfast club was on the telly and watched the rest of that too. By the time we finished it was after 1:30. So of course sensibly we went to bed pretty soon to get back to normal right? Well, maybe if we hadn't read until 3:15. But still, up around 11:15 this morning, and another two mornings to drag the day back a bit more the right direction before I have to actually get up at a properly sensible time. And at least I'll be properly tired by bedtime today!

Today should be another quietly pleasant day hopefully - it's nice being on holiday. Though perhaps I will take the time to write a house to-do list. Hey I could even use the wiki Richard set up :-)
