    Twas the night before back to work day

    And I can't get to sleep. Based on previous I expect to still be up watching crap at 2am.

    Anyone else have this at the end of a holiday? I always have, it's like I'm still a kid and want to make the holiday last...just...that...bit...longer!

    Yup.

    Though I'm usually laying awake until about 3-4am thinking stuff over.

    The past few days have been ridiculous... I need a holiday to get over this holiday.

    Sometimes its best to write it all down as your brain is trying to organise it all. If you write dosn whatever you are thinking about your brain can then relax as you know that once you have noted it down its there for you in the morning so you dont need to mentally remember it.

    You'll possibly find that the stuff you are thinking about is normally blown out of proportain and really once you get to work it isnt really that bad.

    I often go through this and its usually around the 5~6am point where is wake up and start mulling things over.

    I find the answer to this, as well as dealing with lots of other problems, is alcohol. Lots of it !

    my clock takes about a week to adjust to having time off, and then yes, on the final day, my body does not want to go to sleep early

    I had a week where I didn't go into the building [except one day, and it was BS]... but I wouldn't call it a week off.

    To be honest with me I seem to sleep fine, for example when I go to work during half term I know there is no teachers or staff in so the stress and thinking process is halted and I sleep like a little baby. Although as soon as the Monday comes when I have to be in then 1. I know teachers will be nagging me as things always inevitably stop working (printers) 2. I'll have tasks that could have been easily done over half term but the staff forgot to tell me and 3. I have a job list that I've been trying to get through for months.

    Ugh bring on the summer!

    I have trouble sleeping every Sunday night - wondering what is going on at work. Strange really because work isn't usually that onerous
