Tris is at the Lair tonight & as usual I cannot sleep. Despite being very tired & feeling rough from this cold I am struggling to doze off. At least from next week we will officially be living together & these nights apart will become even more rare.
I have dosed myself up on cold meds & put a few drops of lavender oil on my pillow. Now I am going to lie quietly in the dark & listen to an audio book like I used to do as a child. Hopefully the story will help me to disengage & I will drift off to sleep.
It is 01:11 & I cannot sleep. This vexes me. I have no sleep aids as I am in a hotel so I have no choice but to lie in bed until I eventually doze off. Hopefully it won’t be long now.
It’s 00:22 & I have to get up for my final shift at my current shop in less than seven hours. I used to suffer from horrible insomnia so this shouldn’t be causing me a great issue I am used to dosing myself up on caffeine & finding a way to get through the day.
Usually when I am unable to sleep I watch tv/youtube videos until I can’t keep my eyes open any longer then I lie quietly listening to an audio book or relaxing music. Tonight however I cannot do any of these things as I am at the Lair with Tris & I don’t want to disturb his sleep.
Strangely my insomnia doesn’t normally affect me when I am sharing a bed with Tris. Tonight I am very tired & really want to sleep but the issue preventing my slumber is my nasty sinuses rather than the usual problem of my brain being unable to shut down for rest.
I decided to sit up & browse the internet for a while in the hope that my nose will sort itself out so I can try again to sleep in a bit.
Will it work? Who knows?! I shall report back in a few hours.
