Ouch!

The first Sunday of my holidays and the tiredness really hit home!

It was a busy Friday, rushing from school to join thousands of cars on the Motorway, to get to Birmingham, but we did it.

A whistle-stop trip to see my parents, staying overnight with them, before the wedding we were to attend.

A day of driving to and from, and sitting, at the wedding. Eating, but no dancing, I was too tired!

Don’t scrub up too bad, eh!

Then back on the motorway to get home!

This morning, I woke up near 9 am. That is unheard of for me to be honest! But I needed the sleep!

Went shopping, the housework can wait, but food couldn’t!

Post-lunch I just crashed out.

Two hours of sleep left me groggy as anything, but I got up, and promptly slipped down the stairs, bumping elbows and my back.

Currently, I am sat here, aching all over, contemplating a hot bath to soothe my clumsy body… Then I need to sleep early!

But thank goodness for the holidays eh!

I am planning on binge watching Goodness Gracious Me! as I finally got the Box set!

Need to educate the kids in a bit more British Asian comedy! They alreadyΒ love Citizen Khan!

    You look beautiful, Sis. I hate waking up groggy after an afternoon nap, and how awful that you fell down the stairs too! I hope you are feeling ok now. xx

    You look lovely in that dress. Sorry for the bumps and slipping down the stairs. Get a few more hours of sleep really helps. Hope you got some sleep over the weekend, Ritu!

    You don’t look sleepy at all Ritu! How do you manage to scrub up so beautifully when you are knackered!? I’d look all droopy with big bags under my eyes.

    You, lady, look gorgeous in your wedding outfit.

    Accident prone or what! At least it wasn’t as serious as the last one. Sleep well and I hope it’s a bit less painful in the morning.
