Arhhhhhhhhhh


Like I said I'm on night shifts all weekend

The church bell woke me at 11am
Chris went out for lunch so could not " field" 2 people knocking loudly at the door around 12pm,
and again at 2.30
The phone went around 1pm causing the dogs to howl like wolves
I have had no sleep

  2. Think you mean 'on' John - actually I rather like you psychadellic (even if I can't spell it).

  3. Perhaps this is a good respite, you look a bit green around the gills. Good Lord, you've got gills!

  6. You look green with envy that you can't do nightshifts too.

  7. I thought it was the End of Days when we didn't hear from you for 24 hours.

  8. hmmm, perhaps you'd better get one of those x-ray dept gadgets to check your radiation levels....you appear to be glowing in the dark!

  10. We can see a part of you that most need warming. Can't you get one of your doggies to lie on your face?

  11. Night shifts? I serious know the feeling. I've been working the 11:00pm to 7:00am shift for about five-years now.

  15. How about a little laminated sign like the hotels use? DO NOT DISTURB!!! You can hang it on the door when convenient. I am all for ear plugs too.

  16. You need a 'working nights' note on the door John, and to train the dogs to answer the phone, and perhaps a pair of fetching ear muffs. Too late to add to your crimble list....?

  17. Take the phone off the hook and hang a sign on the door...Sleeping!

    Hope you get to rest soon.

  18. Snap. And it is no wonder that so many cultures have used sleep deprivation as a torture. It is.

  19. It always happens, the second I drift off for a nap the phone rings, the UPS man comes....
    Love the photo

    cheers, parsnip

  20. Oooh, nothing I hate more than working on too little sleep. And my job isn't even near as challenging as nursing.

    Hope you get a good night's sleep soon!

  21. Too little sleep for me and everyone around pays for it too! I'm sucha grouch!

  22. No PPI bastards phoning?

  23. Well, I won't waste your time with a silly comment. I'll let you get back to sleep....

  24. When I worked nights (7 p.m. to 7 a.m., usually 4 times a week), nothing could wake me up.

    Love,

  25. Put up a sign and take the phone off the hook....you must get your rest if you are going to maintain....

  26. Sending good vibes across the pond. I wouldn't be able to do what you do.

  27. I agree with the others who suggested a sign on the door and taking the phone off the hook. Interrupted sleep is just too hard on a person.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, either a lot of coffee or chocolate or both should help you stay awake. And since you are on a diet, you may want to try carob chocolate?
    Either way I hope your Sunday night shift wasn't too hard on you. ♥

  29. Time to put a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door. People can be pretty thoughtless towards people who work night shifts as you now know. Most people assume that everyone works 9 - 5 and have no respect for those who do not. Did you at least make the ones knocking on the door feel guilty for waking you?

    ReplyDelete
  30. You need a large sign to put on the gate John, telling everyone not to wake you (apart from Aunt Gladys leaving her scones quietly.)

    ReplyDelete
  31. And I now I understand your fascination with the Walking Dead.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's a good job you're so naturally beautiful you don't actually need beauty sleep then isn't it :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. A sign for the gate would be a good idea!!
