Tired New Year’s Eve


It’s New Year’s Eve of course and as seems to be usually the case at the moment I’m extremely tired. In fact I’ve just had what many people would call a ‘nanna nap’ – a sleep in the afternoon. It doesn’t seem to have helped a great deal, but I’d hate to think how tired I would be if I didn’t have it.

So tonight, what will I be doing? Not a lot really – just sleeping at some point. I’m not too sure if I’ll be awake come the New Year this time round. Still, hopefully the New Year will be a much better year than the one just gone.

Happy New Year all – and be safe in your celebrations.

Tiredness


I have just one more week until I’m on annual leave again (for two weeks). I am so looking forward to it and will use the time as wisely as I can – especially to rest, ensure correct sleep patterns, etc. I am so tired at the moment and need to discipline myself to ensure I have adequate sleep. I must tell myself, ‘sleep is my friend and is not a waste of time.’

So Tired


I seem to be constantly battling tiredness. I always feel tired – so tired. I feel like spending days laying about in bed snoozing whenever I want. Mind you, it’s probably my own fault as I view sleeping as a waste of time and tend to spend far too much time doing other things than sleeping.

Myall Lakes National Park


It was my first official day of annual leave from work today and of course it had to start with a good sleep-in, which I might add I’m going to try and avoid doing for the entire period of my annual leave – just the first couple of days. I have been extremely tired, so a few sleep-ins will be helpful – for my health and well being you know. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about and agree with me entirely. I take your silence as tacit agreement. Thank you for that.

Myall Lakes National Park

Once I was up I thought I should do something – so the day wouldn’t be viewed as an entire waste. So a drive to Bulahdelah was on the cards via the Myall Lakes National Park and the Bombah Point Ferry. So that’s what I decided to do, after I thought through a few more possible options for other things to do during my holidays. I have come up with a reasonable list I think – I just need to see them all through now. Hopefully that will happen – just need to keep myself from sleeping-in too often.

Wattle in BloomSo I headed off for my drive through the park, which is only a very short drive from where I live, just on the other side of Hawks Nest.

One of the things you notice when driving through Myall Lakes National Park at the moment is all of the Wattle that is flowering. The Wattle (Acacia) is a native shrub – actually there are many species of Acacia, with the one pictured being Acacia longifolia. Everywhere you look in the national park along the road you see masses of Wattle in flower. With the growing conditions in recent times they all look magnificent.

Of course the Wattle isn’t the only wildflower currently flowering, but it is probably the most prolific of all of the wildflowers at the moment. The Banksia is another very noticeable wildflower that is flowering at the moment and there are several others also.

I spotted some more wildflowers when I stopped at the place known as the ‘Hole in the Wall.’ Hole in the Wall is a picnic area providing views of the coast and Pacific Ocean. It also provides access to the beach. I didn’t head down to the beach, but I did enjoy the view. It is a great spot on the coast here on the Myall Coast.

So after Hole in the Wall it was pretty much straight to Bulahdelah, via the Bombah Point Ferry, but that can be tomorrow’s post as I won’t be doing a great deal tomorrow. So until then, enjoy looking at that panoramic shot above.

Sleepy


This won’t be a long post today. On a regular basis I find myself to be too sleepy and tired. I don’t get enough sleep. I see it as a waste of time – a time I could be doing other things. Still, one needs their sleep and I’m going to try and get some more tonight. So getting ready for bed.

Topsy: A Twitter Search Engine


Wow, it has been almost two months since my last post on this Blog. Time has gone by quickly as I have struggled to keep up with the demands of running a number of different Blogs and websites. In fact, I have done very little with many of them – just been too busy and too tired. Hopefully that will change a little now. I’m trying to become a little more disciplined with my time in order to allow myself to get on with the task of maintaining the various websites I own.

Today’s ‘daily’ is a website called ‘Topsy.’ Topsy is a search engine for Twitter posts or tweets as they are often called. If you would like to search Twitter for a particular topic or even a username, Topsy could be just the place you are looking for. I found it today and experimented a little with it – a very good little site I thought (for Twitter). Just another of the seemingly countless Twitter applications that are out there.
