And I mean work work on Excel, burning the midnight oil.
I'm on an overnight coach from Middlesbrough to London after my cousins funeral yesterday. Quite a but if snow, I want to sleep but can't. Coach gets in at 6am then I've got an hour by train and a fair walk.
i hope it wasn't too bad :(
are you one of those people who just can't sleep on coaches/trains/planes in general then or just not at the moment? where does your coach/train get in and whereabouts are you going to? i'm very spoilt in that even though i live in london, most places i need to get to on a regular basis are either within a 30 minute walk or a short bus ride. obviously this doesn't account for when i'm coming back from traveling ie. non-london places, but still. pretty good. makes me a bit lazy when it comes to going other places around london though.
My cousin died of cancer and left a 2 year old son:( about 400 people turned up for the funeral. I met a lot of nice people.
I've not slept in 48 hours now, as I shared a room with my dad who snores plus my mind wouldn't settle.
I get into Victoria, then a train to Caterham and about 20 min walk. Should be home by 8 where I plan to sleep all day.
hope you're as ok as you can be, dude. given the circumstances, i mean.
also sharing a room with a snorer is the worst. when i was younger and my family would go on trips and all share a room i could never sleep because of my dad's snoring. when i've been living at home for periods as a grown up i've still heard his snoring as there are very thin walls in the house, but at least i've been able to decide for myself when to go to bed - which you can't really do if there's just one room for the entire family, or as you say, sharing a room with the one snorer.
so you've got about two and a half hours left on the coach, what time did you get on it? ie how long is the coach ride altoghether?
i've finished my wine now so probably gonna go to sleep quite soon
Coach journey is just over 6 hours. It left at midnight. I should gave drank more at the wake, I'd probably be sleeping now.
how's your leg space? i'm 6ft so leg space is always a big issue for me.
I'm 6'2 but I'm on an aisle. Plus I have an absurdly long upper body and relatively normal legs.
even though i'm fairly tall i always prefer the window seat though, because then i can lean on the wall/window to sleep. i always sleep on coaches/trains/planes so don't really like aisle seats. but obviously on a megabus or something where there is literally no space for your legs window seats especially will just always be painful regardless.
it had been growing for weeks and i just couldn't be bothered to deal with it - but now it's all gone! yay!
one of my flatmates is a hair and makeup artist so he was just despairing and giving me the most disapproving looks you can imagine. hopefully we can be friends again now.
i did try to get him to cut it off but he flat refused.
the link was from huffpost and the reply that i in turn replied to was pretty clearly from an american, so who the fuck knows how this will turn out
I think I may have just managed an hours sleep, go me.
i am now gonna go for many, many hours' sleep. l8rz!
