Everything is harder
When you’re tired.
Nothing is a pleasure,
When tiredness takes over.
Little niggles become mountains
When sleep has been deprived,
Tempers have no fuse and blow
When rest has been denied.
People can be tiresome
And Patience takes its leave,
Those we love are fair game
With Frustration on our sleeve.
So many things become a chore
‘Simple’ a mess and muddle,
Inanimate objects challenge,
Sound becomes muffled.
Do you really need to drive today?
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
they’ve already shown that tiredness is the #1 cause of accidents, but yeah we need to keep on going. 😦
Perhaps someone could use this as part of an awareness campaign? We see huge signs on the motorways here that Tiredness Kills and to Take a Break.
