It’d be an even lovelier feeling if I could sleep too. I have counselling later today so I’m probably thinking about that too. It doesn’t upset me but it does make me take a long, hard look at myself and that’s not always easy.

Anyway I’ll say goodnight or good morning depending on which side of the pond you are on xxx
