Dreaded insomnia

I guess that it has something to do with being ill right now and sleeping so much at weird hours but I only seem to be able to sleep for about two to three hours at a stretch before I wake up again and am wide awake.

Then again, it does not help that Smudge seems to have developed a plot to take custody of my bed full time! Every time I lie down for a nap she wakes me up after about two hours by scratching at something and/or playing with something that she should not that I thought I had buried/hidden well on my desk. I guess that I should wear earplugs more often like I used to.

The thing is, I need to be awake today during* the day because mum is coming over for lunch. I hope that I;
  1. manage to get some more sleep.

  2. manage to be awake in time.

  3. feel well enough that I do not have to cancel.

That last one is not a certainty. I was feeling a little better earlier but have also felt a lot worse today. I also do not want to give her this bug.

I did actually do something today - washed loads of pots and utensils that do not go in the dishwasher, emptied and refilled the dishwasher, peeled and chopped a butternut squash as well as chopping potatoes and carrots and then making them into soup. I did a cursory clean in the kitchen, as well.

* (I initially wrote curing!?)
