So, so tired today. We watched Iron Man (again) last night, so we didn't go to bed until almost 11.30pm, then I just could not get to sleep. Gah - I've been a zombie all day. Then we had a meeting in one of the boardrooms with low lighting, so that didn't help matters AT ALL, seeing as I usually have problems staying awake in meetings no matter how awake or interested in the topic I am. I think I'm going to make this an early night. This has been another stupifyingly boring post, no doubt this will become a trend.
