Well, the time is currently 12:55am and I am unable to sleep. I can’t believe this has happened again, it’s like I have little gnomes running around my head. I wish my mind would settle down at times, these late nights are getting too much for me. The weirdest thing is, I’m not doing anything to make my mind overwork, it makes no sense because I have been turning things off hours before I go to bed, so it shouldn’t be effecting me like this. I guess it kind of helps for today because I am going to London and I don’t know how much of the blog will get done today, I am aiming to get it done in time, but if I go over then it doesn’t matter, these things happen.
I have to be up in approximately five hours time, and in reality this isn’t far away. I don’t see the point in sleeping now anyway, by the time I get into a deep sleep, it will be time to wake up again, which will make feel heavy and it will take me hours to feel normal again. The best thing I can do now is to have plenty of fluids and to keep warm, by the time our trip is over, I will be ready to curl up in bed. This won’t be a bad thing, I guess it will help me reset my body clock to more suitable sleeping times.
So, the day started out with a train journey to London. The train was packed, there wasn’t even a spare seat for me to sit on, which meant I had to stand for an hour, and might I add, it was killing my knees. I don’t know why people couldn’t give up their seat to help me, but oh well, it doesn’t matter, what is done, is done now. After an hour went by, we arrived into London Victoria railway station. I had a sigh of relief, my knees were killing me, but I couldn’t let my pain show because I was looking forward to our day out.
I forgot to mention. I was going to London with Laura (sister), mother, Tash (sister in-law) Mia (niece), and obviously myself.
The day out started at the natural history museum, it was very interesting. I was constantly taking pictures and uploading them to my Instagram feed (instagram.com/VlogWithSid). I am glad I have an unlimited data plan because it would cost me a bomb if I had capped allowance, well, saying that, my allowance is unlimited, but it has a fair usage policy of ten terabyte a month, which I will never hit because I am on iPhone and I only have 64GB of storage, so reaching that allowance cap every month would prove very unlikely.
After we finished in the museum, it was time to grab some food and drink. Everyone else had breakfast at some posh restaurant, it was very overpriced and according to them lot the food tasted horrible. I didn’t have any food, I just went over to Starbucks, I would have gone to Costa, but there wasn’t any nearby, so I had to settle for second best. I know some people have their own opinions of coffee shops, and some people like one more than they other, so here is my opinion. After tasting my first Starbucks hot chocolate, I was left feeling disappointed, it wasn’t very nice at all, I would rather have cheap brand hot chocolate instead of drinking that again. I am sorry if that seems very opinionated, but we all have certain things we dislike, and I am sorry to say, this is one of the things I dislike.
Once we finished our drinks, we headed over to the science museum. This was the most interesting part for me because I love everything to do with science, you might have guessed this by the previous blog posts I shared recently in a blog post. The museum had many exhibits, I won’t go over each one because I would be here all night typing, and that is one thing I haven’t got the time or energy for.
I am going to skip ahead to the late afternoon because I want to save some stuff for tomorrows blog, even though it is more to do with pain levels at the moment because all the walking has caused some nasty muscle spasms. When the afternoon came along we decided to do some sightseeing, which took its toll on because with every step I took the pain worsened and my left leg was starting to get weaker. These pains really hold me back at times, it isn’t easy to cope with because I have to take many painkillers, and I have to endure the usual daily stares because I walk with a limp.
Sorry to cut this short, but I need to sign off for now. I need to have something to eat because I have hardly had any food all day. I will continue this story tomorrow, and you never know something more surprising might happen tomorrow too!
