I started the day feeling pretty good and was even excited to have half a coffee. In retrospect I can say that I felt like I was somewhat in a different dimension. Despite that, I am fairly annoyed that 3 hours on the beach watching kids and socialising at Nippers (I only just managed a dip myself and did stay mostly sun-sensibly covered up in long-sleeves and a hat) left me feeling the need for a rest. Add to that a lovely 2 hour visit and lunch from some friends and I was wiped out for the rest of the day.
It appears that I do need to scale back my activities and expectations. Hopefully my energy will increase in the coming 2 weeks as I'm thinking that it's really bizarre to be going to bed earlier than many of my friends' kids. I'll stop my complaining and be happy if this is as bad as it gets (as my tongue is feeling a bit funny...).
