Best laid plans

The plan was for me to spend some time this evening writing a blog post then some household bill payments.
The line from Robbie Burns about the best laid plans of mice and men comes to mind.
I'm blaming the magnitude 5.3 shake up we had at 3am this morning.
The hard part of trying to get on with recovering from am earthquake (compared with other types of natural disasters) is how long it keeps on going. And going. For months. Maybe more than a year. Just as I start to feel like I'm making progress at getting on with life yet another big aftershock sends my "alarm monkey" into overdrive and I'm three steps back again.
So this evening's plan now includes chocolate and a dressing gown and a cat and writing this post on my cellphone while turning off my brain in front of tv. And the post I intended to work on will wait for another day.


  1. Oh yeah. Totally hearing ya! I've just put myself to bed early aftery very long day, about to read myself to sleep, which shouldn't take long... Hope you get a good rest tonight xo

  2. Yes that is a real worry, I was so sorry to hear that! Good idea about the chocolate that's for sure!

  3. Thanks for your comments. Still hankering for an early night sleep tonight. Miss Five had a bad dream about 3am last night - delayed reaction perhaps? Stay safe and Kia Kaha.
