let's all laugh at...

you guessed it. Me!

So I mentioned in my last post that I hadn't been sleeping too great, and this has resulted in me doing some stupid things which have been amusing to everyone around me, but most embarrassing for me.

I'll start with Sunday. My car was making the most awful noise and after taking a few speed bumps, a heat cover from my exhaust fell off. I was pretty raging about this and asked Dad to look at trying to fix it. When he asked me to "give it some revs", I did and nothing happened...and again...and again. Nothing. By this point James and Dad were exasperated, my car was running, how could I not rev. Bit hard to rev when you're pressing the break pedal. Nice one Ruth...they laughed a lot and I felt embarrassed.

Today, I put about 25 quid of shopping through self serve only to discover I had no purse. The lady was kind enough to suspend the transaction so I could drive home, get my purse and go back and pay. What an idiot.

I actually tried to drive away without starting my car the other day. I put the key in, car in gear, took the handbreak off and sat wondering what on earth was wrong.

To say it's not been my cleverest few weeks is an understatement, and with only 3.5 hours sleep last night, today was a bit miserable, so I felt extra specially embarrassed having to admit to no purse in front of a queue of shoppers.

Anyway, just thought I'd post something a bit stupid, cause last few have been awfully health focused.

Here's to a better sleep tonight *fingers crossed*

    I've done the whole putting the car into gear and trying to drive off having forgotten to even start the engine.

    In my driving test I tried to do a hill start and reved the sweet hell out of the engine and got confused about why I wasn't going anywhere and I'd forgotten to take off the handbrake.

    I really hope you start sleeping better soon hun. Can't be fun being so tired!
