I spoke too soon about the jetlag. Last night, I got to bed about half past one, which is not too bad, but this morning I could not wake up for love nor money. I finally dragged myself out of bed at eleven, but I honestly could have slept all day.
Geth was also worried about his suitcase showing up in time today, because we were out this afternoon so wouldn’t have been around to receive it. Luckily it finally arrived a couple of hours before we were due to leave, so he was able to have a shower and get some laundry done. As this has also happened to Malcolm and Steff a couple of times when connecting through Heathrow, we’ve decided we’re not going that way to Canada anymore.
Hoping that parkrun tomorrow will sort the jetlag issue!
I woke up to my alarm at 8am this morning as normal on a Thursday, and had managed to sleep quite well, so I seem (touch wood!) to have nixed my jetlag straight away. We’ll see how I do over the next couple of days.
This morning’s main task was attending my Slimming World group to face the post-holiday music. I’ve put on six pounds during my holiday (ouch) and am out of target range. I know I can lose it again quickly though – just have to be really good this week.
After I got home, I got all my post-holiday laundry done, and then later in the afternoon Geth arrived home sans luggage. His flight turnaround at Heathrow was too tight for the bag to make the connection, so he settled down to wait for news about it and I headed off to Pilates.
It was great to get back to Pilates again – all the stretching was very welcome after a week on holiday. Sadly it was the last class of the course and we’re now on summer break until September – I’m going to have to practise lots at home instead!
After class, I nipped down to Sainsbury’s to pick up my souvenir Now! #100 CD and do my bit for getting it into the album charts tomorrow. Excitingly, Sainsbury’s have a deal on, where you can get Now! #100 for £3 cheaper if you also buy another Now! compilation – so I took the opportunity to grab a copy of Now! #1 as well, which has just had a re-release on CD:
I went home to make healthy food for the first time in a couple of weeks, and Geth had news of his bag – they won’t be delivering it till tomorrow. Hopefully it will arrive sooner rather than later.
