White feathers and wide awake

It’s been a busy Monday and here I am wide awake at 2am. We had a rehearsal for Sligo Acts, a play I’m in on Sunday, and I find it very difficult to wind down after evening rehearsals.

It was the coffee morning as well earlier in the day and I’m always quite nervous that no one will turn up. Even moreso yesterday as Blaithin couldn’t make it. I needn’t have worried because there were about ten people there, although as usual I talked too much! Another habit I’d like to stop! I think it was almost worse this time because of being snowed in for the few days. Lack of social interaction – apart from the family, so the mouth was in overdrive. When I left the café a white feather was at my feet so I took that as a good sign.

At our rehearsal in the theatre there were lots of feathers, I know it was from a recent production but it was lovely to see them.

I know I shouldn’t be blogging and certainly shouldn’t be on my phone but until my senses calm down I won’t sleep. The best way I can describe it is being similar to a coiled spring. It’s like the feeling I get after I’ve been to a concert, ringing in my ears and jangling nerves. I don’t mind it so much these days as on the whole my sleeping has been fantastic lately – except on Monday nights. Still after the play on Sunday I’ll probably settle again, I will miss our group though, it’s been great craic. 😊

  1. I so understand what you are talking about Val. I find is I have had a busy day- especially if its been a really good day- I have a hard time sleeping, and if I go out at night, to a meeting or anything I don’t get to sleep in the wee hours…Last night before bed I was researching for my upcoming Ireland trip—not a good idea..took me forever to fall asleep. 🙂 Good for you for being in a play-WOW- and I’m glad to hear the coffee morning went really well…and , be gentle with yourself 🙂 ❤
