Just over tired as usual.

I am...very!
Been up since 4.40am and only got to sleep at 1am...I hate humid nights and so, it seems, does my DS!

SO grumpy, shouted "ITS COMING" at poor ds this morning when he asked me for some breakfast. i feel so guilty I can't wait for him to come home from play school so I can show him I'm a nice mummy really. Tiredness is torture.

yes I am a horror!

yes - increasingly so - I can feel my patience disappearing rapidly and hear myself getting nastier - ugh.

lack of sleep is torture isn't it?

Extremely! dh and ds always bear the brunt of it, even though it's dd I've been up to half the night.

What does it have to do with you anyway ??

What do you mean it was a perfectly civil question ??

It was an invasion of my privacy and as such I resent it.

Now....... ask me next week, when the heat isn't keeping me awake and the answer would be oh so civil

i am and i am epecially grumpy in the morning when i have to get up. Not a very nice mummy first thing in the morning and come to think of it from about tea-time onwards when i feel tired again

bambino1 Thu 23-Jun-05 21:44:28

Same with me pw! yesterday morning was the grumpiest ever and managed to drop dd breakfast all over carpet. I just stared at it not having energy or emotional strength to clean it up!! Then you get those blooming hoobs singing at you from tv!

Sometimes grumpy, sometimes emotional.

Had a conversation with my boss the other day that went like this:
Boss - So how are you finding it being back at work?
Me - Ok, apart from trying to function on 5 or 6 hours sleep a night
Boss - Oh, that's usual for me - I'm at the Gym for 6 every morning
Me - Well fcking bully for you I'm knackered (didn't say it out load thankfully)

Er.. in other words... yes, grumpy

pleaserewind Thu 23-Jun-05 21:46:22

you can lose the will to live listening to the hoobs
at least ds2 has outgrown them now, we get treated to chucklevision now!

Magscat Thu 23-Jun-05 21:47:33
