Sydney stole my drug time!

Sydney the grumpy cat spent a couple of hours sleeping on our bed last night - which is a good thing.

Except that she didn't do a lot of sleeping. There was plenty of grooming, some walking about, a bit of preening and a fair bit of staring.

I wouldn't mind except that by the time I get to bed I'm in a lot of pain and I've honed my painkillers to work their best for me. I take the pills as I start the long walk to the bedroom, and it's pretty painful I can tell you. By the time I've got my pillows sorted out and dragged my poor legs onto the bed, the painkiller has just started to kick in. I usually fall straight asleep but, unfortunately, it doesn't last for long; say an hour and a half to a couple of hours. Then I wake up in a lot of pain and writhe about until 0400 when I take a different tablet and get some more sleep, if I'm lucky.

Last night, with Sydney's night time antics, when I woke up and checked the clock I found to my horror that I'd been asleep for just 30 minutes, with a long painful night ahead of me.

Sydney got fed up with us at 0200am and asked to be let out.

I had a long, long night staring me in the face. Lot's of pain.

Thanks Sydney.

If only.

"The winter is forbidden till December And exits March the Second, on the dot.
By order, summer lingers through September,
In Camelot.
Camelot, Camelot!
I know it sounds a bit bizarre,
But in Camelot, Camelot,
That's how conditions are."


- Camelot
, Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner  


Actually it's freezing cold, everything hurts and, after a summer of feeling cold the whole time I'm looking at a freezing cold winter.

It's a little bit unfair.
