All I want is a room somewhere...

I'm sleepy. Falling asleep at my desk.

I fell asleep on the RER this morning, waking just in time to not miss my stop.

At lunch, I could feel myself heading down into the pizza, face first.

I'm exhausted.

Thing is, I had Florida Boy over for ten days - which meant ten days of running all over Europe, with late nights and early starts. Then, the day he left I ended up with le Fabulous Parisien on an overnight visit.

I left le FP behind and flew to the UK for a weekend of moving house - heavy stuff - late nights with my cousin and breakfast chats with my Mother. Exhausting.

I got back late sunday night - nearly midnight - then was up again for work at 6am monday. Monday evening saw le FP come round - not an early night - and he's back again tonight.

Tomorrow I have a long-standing date with a really lovely guy who's back in town having recently moved to Switzerland. That's gonna be a late one too, I'm sure.

Thursday, My Lovely Irish Dutch Friend arrives with his beau in tow and the party weekend begins.

I'm not sure when I get to sleep, when I get to re-charge my batteries.

I just know that I'm already exhausted and it's going to get worse before it gets better. And I absolutely refuse to have my Final Fortieth Birthday Party Weekend (yes, I know my actual birthday was back in July) ruined by my being too tired to enjoy myself.

What's a boy to do?

I have the feeling that I'll be working from home one day this week....

You're going to crash one of these days and it isn't going to be pretty. Call in a sick day sweetie. Just do it.

What! Uh uh. No way. Not only was I not even mentioned that I'm coming the furthest for la big party weekend, then you go and tell us you're going to fall asleep half-way through!

No one said nothing about no slumber party!

Suck it up lady. You'll be fine. Haemorrhoid cream for the bags under your eyes and plenty of caffine, vitamin B and sugar should see you through.

nah take a mental health day or work from home. and by that I mean sleep with half an eye open and on the laptop. Don't do what I did only today and start snoring on a teleconference call while you're working from home :)

Although you sound on the verge of a breakdown, it still sounds like you lead a pretty fabulous life. Lots of friends (some with benefits!) and a great social life - woo hoo! :)
