When you know something’s wrong
And your eyes open up, just a crack
The daylight streams in
Bright as midday
And you think holy crap
Now I’m in trouble.
I did that thing today where you wake up and you instantly know something’s wrong. It seemed too light outside and I had that sinking feeling that I must have turned off my alarm and fallen back asleep.
I had four minutes to get up and be in work.
I have to give myself some credit as I did get in just ten minutes late.
You have to do it at least once a year and that was my embarrassing turn. It was made so much worse by the fact that the headteacher stood in for me so there was no escaping the fact that I’d screwed up.
Here’s to being a massive scre up and trying to be OK with that.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear you had ONE OF THOSE DAYS, Rachel! We all have them, and I hope it helps that you’re not alone in that. Hoping that tomorrow is better for you!
It did get better, although I’ve had to skulk around in the shadows because I don’t want to bump into the Head Teacher for a couple of days!
The only nice thing about being a light sleeper is that I have never been late to work or school from oversleeping…
I’m terrible for it – especially in the winter when it’s so dark outside. I need to start setting about twenty alarms.
