Writing when basically already asleep

I worry when it rains now. Apparently the way to solve my water ingress problem is more scaffolding up the block. I’m gonna go up on the roof and see if there’s an obvious leaf clog or somesuch first though. But I’m drifting off to sleep listening to the rain and with an empty pan a few inches from my head. I’m hoping I won’t hear it go ploink.

A good night’s sleep is definitely in order. A spot of work in the morning and then visiting. Tristan spun in after work and dragged me for a lunch beer and a catch up. Then I shot across town to try and find Max, and do some visiting. By the time I was home I was hungry so took the time to make my signature Mac and Cheese, with proper white sauce and green chillis. It’s a cheese fest but its excellent comfort food when it’s cold and wet and sad.

Nothing else much to report. Invoices and admin and then I took a sleepy drink about twenty minutes ago before I realised I hadn’t written. Now I’m almost completely asleep and can’t really remember much detail from my day through the fug. I’ll be in a very happy snooze in about ten minutes. Driving to Nottingham and back tomorrow. So long as the rain doesn’t come in I’ll be well rested… Short one today. Sleep too much of an inevitability. And no doubt the dreams will be coloured in by all the tasty cheese.
