It's all these mozzies that creep up into my bedroom in the early hours of the morning that kill my sleep. That plus I'm itching from sandfly bites which I suspect I scratch in my sleep so of course it gets even itchier. this is hell for my work the next day especially when I have to work with figures. Just waiting to go do aikido then drop into bed with lots of lemongrass scenting the room to keep the mozzies at bay and lots of chamomile tea to hopefully get me to sleep sounder.
Aikido was fine though. Got there late since I had to stay back a little to finish up a piece of work since I'd been too sleepy to work earlier. It was a relatively light but difficult session with the jo. There are these little movements which produce a large turning circle with the jo that I find hard to get. Now why does that sound like the rest of my aikido .
And I finally got a decent night's sleep so I'm a bit more normal today and able to work better.
