An Early Start To The Day
Yes, it is barely 6am and I have already written an email, sorted out my books for a bit of studying, attached the earphones to my iPod (I need it to listen to some items for the chapter I am reading in the course book), switched on my laptop (okay, so I did that before I wrote the email), and got myself into a comfortable position in bed so that I can spend a couple of hours studying before I get myself ready to face the day and go out to do some shopping.
The reason that I am doing these things so early in the morning, is that I went to bed early last night, fell asleep almost immediately and had nine hours sleep before waking this morning. I'm still yawning every so often, but I feel a bit brighter than I have for several days.
So some early morning studying, followed by a quick trip to the shops, means that I should be able to please myself about how I spend the rest of the day. It will probably be some time spent reading, and more time spent with the knitting. Yes, I know that it isn't a very exciting existence, but it is manageable and I do feel as though I am achieving something each day. And sometimes just surviving the day can be an achievement in itself.
