Awake

There’s something not quite right when you’re awake earlier on your day off than on a work day.

I slept really badly last night. You know those nights where you can’t get comfortable, you’re too hot with the duvet on, too cold with it off and when you do sleep you just have bizarre dreams that kept waking you up? That’s the night I had.

I actually gave up on sleep somewhere around 3:45 and made myself a cup of tea. I sat in bed and read for a bit, then jumped online. I did a little bit of work on my wordpress site, joined a few fanlistings.

It’s now 10am and admittedly i’m still sitting in bed. I’m thinking about taking a shower, getting dressed and walking into town. There’s a few things I’d like to get and a few chores around the house I’d like to check of the list. Nothing exciting, it’s a ‘buy milk’ and ‘do laundry’ type of day.

This afternoon I’m hoping to knuckle down and make a start on writing – probably my jd_ficathon fic

Routines

I really need to work out a way of getting online into my normal evening schedule. Slot it in between somewhere after doing the dishes because I feel like I’m never getting online to post or to read or to comment. Or even to work on all the fic I’m wanting to write! I’m so used to my normal routine but I like coming online so more than one evening a week would be nice!

I also need to figure out things to talk about. Maybe I’ll find one of those ’30 day memes’ for August or something. I’m sure these things used to be easy but I really have no life and ‘I went to work, I did bank stuff, I came home, I cooked, I did housework, I watched TV and went to bed’ doesn’t exactly make for an interesting blog post, does it? LOL

Ben, the lovely boyfriend, came around this afternoon with a present for me which I’m very excited to play with. He got me a Colouring for Grown-Up Children – Colouring Book Set which he says was a reward for sorting out my paperwork and filing it rather than having it piled up on my kitchen table – that I now have something to use my kitchen table for.
Two colouring books featuring animals, flowers, butterflies and abstract images, and a pack of 36 colouring pencils.

Welcome!

• My name is Hannah. I’m in my mid-30s, live alone in England with two cats. I’ve been with my boyfriend Ben for almost 7 years and we have no plans to get married.

• Please let me know if I say something that you find offensive or tactless, because I can be quite thoughtless when I say things sometimes, so I’d appreciate being told so I don’t do it again. I don’t mean it maliciously, I simply don’t think before inserting my foot into my mouth.

• I’m a huge fan of 90s/2000s alternative rock/grunge. I love Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Semisonic, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Muse, Linkin Park, The White Stripes, 3 Doors Down, Queens Of The Stone age… I have a last.fm account – it’s a new one because, like my old LJ, I’ve lost all the log-in details

• I love science fiction! My favourites are Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Farscape, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Andromeda. I’m currently really loving Dark Matter, Killjoys, iZombie and Stitchers.

• I sold my soul to Joss Whedon many decades ago and he’s never let me down. I have an immense love for that man and his work.

• The superhero films and TV shows of recent years are a current obsession of mine. I love both DC and Marvel, although Marvel possibly slightly more because I love how it’s all connected – it’s all one timeline whereas with DC there’s these shows here in this bubble, these movies here in this bubble. I’m liking the new Justice League era of movies

• I have a Bsc in Psychology but have never put it to use and work in a bank. People fascinate me endlessly and I have thought of doing some form of study in Social Psychology/Sociology or Philosophy.
I’ve just started learning German through Duolingo

• I used to be a big bookworm and I’m trying to pick that back up again. I love science-fiction, fantasy and horror, although I think my current favourite genre is young adult urban fantasy. I’m re-reading the Harry Potter series and have just started The Prisoner Of Azkaban
You can find me on goodreads (which is another new account, I mentioned losing all my log in details for all my social media, yes?)

• I think this is pretty much everything, although if there’s anything you would like to know, feel free to ask!
