Exhausted

Over the past 5-6 months I have been working on a project that has been both a stressful one in the form of sharp deadlines, learning new skills...fast and then the extra hours both at home and in the office to get things done. This week has been unbearable in places with little or no support from my management team who appear oblivious.

My running has been hit hard and the miles reduced dramatically both as part of recovery from The White Cliffs Challenge but mainly due to the extra hours making me feel exhausted with a 15 hour work day on Thursday. 

Last night the small team I am in agreed to shut down the laptops and go home whilst the servers did their work on some data processing and to forget work for a while. On getting on the train, I fell asleep missing my stop. Got home, ate and then ran various family members to parties, collected daughter from the station (visit for the weekend) collected people from parties. Had a quick glass of cider and went to bed.......

I fell asleep before my head hit the pillow and awoke today having had 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep feeling the best I have for a good few weeks.
