I have just woken after a much needed 2 hour siesta.  What a relief to catch up on some sleep after the events of last night.  For a while I didn’t know where I was when I woke up. This has given me a glimpse of how Maureen might feel at any stage of the day or night.

It will take a shower to ground me and to straighten out my thinking.  How on earth Maureen puts on a brave face for much of the time I will never know: she is still sleeping of course!
