Saturday night's are not alright for fighting...

... all they're good for are staying in and being low key.

Last night at about 7.30 pm Mountain Man had a callout with Borders Search and Rescue. At about 11 pm I went to bed. At 1.45 am MM came home and, although he was quiet, I heard him and was wide awake and stayed awake for about 2 hours. I then woke up at 4.30 am and couldn't get back to sleep.

The fact that I had to work today - I facilitate a Mindfulness practice workshop once a month for a group of parents in Edinburgh - didn't help at all. I was really tired and remained so for the rest of the day.

MM has now left for a 24 hour event he's working on down in the Lake District and Odi and I are spending an extremely quiet evening watching crap TV as I'm far too tired to read or do the work I really need to get done.

Odi is also very tired. Her season is taking it's toll and she's been sleeping for a lot of the day. In some ways it's quite a relief that I don't need to play with her lots, but I do feel sorry for her as she's not herself at all, poor wee soul. The only thing that seems to make her feel better is to lie on my feet and she's quite a weighty thing and doesn't understand that it's really uncomfortable for me.

So it's a low key Saturday night for us with nothing better to do than watch Avatar. Me for the escapism and Odi for the noises. Sound enthralling? No, I thought not!
