There’s an advert you see on the tube and elsewhere of woman yawning and – I think – the strap-line is something like ‘Tired of being tired?’
That is my 30s summed up in one sentence, right there.
At the time put it down to having baby twins, to having just started a business and to working all hours.
Whilst that definitely didn’t help and it was a pretty gruelling time I now know that for comparison I felt like that now, in my 40s too. Waking up tired. Yawning all through the day, getting to about 2pm and almost nodding off at my desk.
Needing a power-nap to recharge and this is after I’d dropped the work load (through necessity, my body gave up) and my kids now not only slept through the night but got themselves up, fed themselves breakfast and even made us the odd cup of tea.
