Boxing Day

My work-a-thon continued today.

After working last night until about 10.30, I needed to wake up this morning at about 4.30 to head into work again.

After a restless sleep I woke at 3.30 and had a quick choice to make.

Do I turn over for a few more minutes and run the risk of going back into a deep sleep, waking up mid morning, or do I get up right away, and go straight back to work?

I’m a great sleeper. I can sleep on a 5 minute bus trip. I can take a 5 minute power nap at work and cope well.

I’m also prone to the “five more minutes” school of sleep, and then find myself waking up two or three hours later.

Knowing that propensity, I chose the latter option. Get up, go to work, I said to myself…

I needed to be at work early for a broadcast from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia ahead of today’s Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race.

Despite the rain, there was quite a buzz at the Cruising Yacht Club this morning.

After coming home from work I hit the sack and slept soundly until about 5.00

Now that I’m awake, I’m wondering what I should do with the remainder of Boxing Day.
