Sleeping in

I know sleeping-in during the weekends might be something you all must look forward to but it is something I wish I could do for a long time. I wake up between 6:00 am and 6:30 am during weekdays and my body is like an alarm clock and wakes up before 7am even in the weekend no matter what time I go to bed. I try my best to stay in bed after I wake up but it just doesn’t work for me no matter what I do. This is the reason I try to go to bed on time even on weekends.

I know going to bed and getting up at the same time each day will help to keep us feeling good and performing well. However, sometimes I wish I could sleep in too, just for the novelty of it. Most of the mornings, AS will be sleeping when I wake up on Saturdays and Sundays morning and I get jealous of him.

I try not to disturb him so I will either go for a run or try to do something else until he wakes up. I have to admit I do wake him up if he doesn’t wake up by 8 am sometimes. It might sound cruel of me but there are times I am so bored that I need company.

Last weekend we had to go to a birthday on Saturday. I always like to go to parties where I dress up in traditional sari. Even though we didn’t go out during the day, it took me a while to be ready. You know, it’s a woman thing, hair, makeup, sari and accessories can take heaps of time.

Anyway, we had a good time at the party and were home back a bit late, not too late though. We went to bed straight away when we came home as I was really tired.

The next morning, I woke up. When I turned around, AS was awake (that was a bit of a surprise for a weekend) so I asked him what the time was. He answered 10am and I couldn’t believe my ears.

I think I haven’t slept in till 10am since forever even when I went to bed at 3am so I was really happy that I finally did. I felt good and fresh. I wished I could do that more often (fingers crossed).

But sleeping in on weekends doesn’t seem like a great idea this morning when I couldn’t wake up like normal today. Both of us were running around like headless chicken getting ready this morning. Feeling a bit tired and not fresh at all today 😦 .

Hope all of you had a good weekend and no dramas with your sleep.

Do let me know your sleeping patterns for the weekends and some suggestion if you know how I can fix my tried body today.

Take care,

Happy Weekend

I am loving the weather in Sydney for the last few days, it’s been over 25oC and just amazing to be out and about.

On Friday after work, I was Skyping with my parents when AS returned home from work. I was on Skype for another 30 minutes before I finished talking with my parents. As soon as I was done, I wanted to go to the kitchen to make tea for us but as I was about to do so, I saw AS coming with a tray with tea and cakes. When he put the tray down, I was even happier to see a red rose on the tray. It was a nice surprise and I was touched. As I always believe little things definitely helps a lot and it definitely helped to lift my mood, and that is how I started the beautiful weekend.

On Saturday, I wanted to go for my morning run but as I was coughing the whole night I decided against it and instead watched Downtown Abbey until AS woke up. When he did, he asked me to rest and cooked me a nice warm breakfast in bed. He is really looking after me so well that I feel so spoiled. We stayed home most of the day enjoying each other’s company, talking and planning our life.

Later in the afternoon after lunch, he ran me a bubble bath so I could relax. Since my sickness, I am feeling tired and my body feels weak so it was a good way to unwind and relaxed my body and my mind too. We went for a walk in the evening just to enjoy the fresh air.

On Sunday, we woke up early and went to IKEA for breakfast and quick shopping before coming home to change and attend our friend’s birthday party. She served us an amazing hotpot for lunch and it was a perfect weather to enjoy the food and company.

They also had lemon and orange in their garden so I picked some for the first time in my life. It was so much fun.

Hope all of you had a great weekend too and happy Monday everyone.
