Okay, this New Year’s resolution isn’t really happening:

To consistently get 8 hours’ sleep a night.

Last night I got to bed appallingly late for a school night. Ditto on Wednesday, and I forgot to set the alarm, so I (and everyone else) woke on Thursday morning around 8am. Still managed to get us all out of the house by 8:45 though, which I thought was pretty good going.

Maybe I need to set a timetable for each evening.

8:30. Read emails.

9:00. Make lunch for next day if required.

9:30. Do dishes.

9:45. Any phone calls.

10:30. Watch TV/do ironing if required.

10:50. Brush teeth etc.

11:00. Bedtime.

That might work. Well… on nights I don’t have to fill in tax forms, update web sites, or do other stuff…

PS. On Doctor Who tomorrow night you’ll see just how fearsome a Dalek can be… Just try not to lose any sleep over it.

My two kids cheered every time the Dalek killed somebody, at 3 and 6 years old this can be a little disquieting.

“I felt sorry for that poor little dalek! :(

thank god it wasn’t a cyberman! I can’t imagine feeling sorry for a cyberman!” (from Melanie.)

Even though I wasn’t around in the 1970s – obviously, being born in 1981 – I never imagined I’d feel sorry for any Dalek. Who knows what’s going to happen with the Cybermen in the next series (which they start filming next month, and will be aired in the UK in 2006).
