Summer blues!

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Howdy, dear readers.

Been slack these months, years. So hopefully, this article will be one of many and not the only this year. **Cough**

We are already in full summer and probably most of us are complaining about the heat and humidity in our daily life, be it at work or at home. If you have air conditioning or dehumidifier at work you won’t feel the discomfort at least not in the coziness of your office. When you are out, be it at lunch or after work, you will probably feel the discomfort. At home too, opening all windows and doors will do no good unless there is a breeze which will cool you down. Forget about electric fans which lately have been the buzz of the town. They bring more hotness than coolness in your sleeping room. And your mattress is like a hot furnace only waiting to fry you when you lie on it. So no surprise when you can not sleep for 2-3 continuous days and when the strain takes toll on you and you have no choice but to collapse on the furnace and wake up with a big head ache and sweat all over.

It is good to sleep around 4-5 am when finally it cools down, but only 2 hours before it’s time to wake up and get ready to work. So sometimes you have to bear with it and if you are lucky when your boss is not around or you are the boss yourself, have a nap at work :p At your own risks and perils of course!!!

If I  wake up too early and can not sleep back (sommeil casser),  i would dress up and go jogging up the mountain. It feels good to feel the before dawn breeze on your face. However it is still pitch dark and sometimes you will see shadows or feel like someone is following you. **Hair stands on end ** And tell to myself what are you doing here?? To reassure myself, i will sing something hopefully ghosts will not wake up and shut me down. Once i did just that and someone was climbing down the mountain and just look in my direction.  Alas for me, he could not catch my face otherwise i would inevitably be the star of Mauritius got talent LOL! So after 45 minutes or so,  i finally reach the top and could catch a glimpse of the rays lazily piercing through the grey clouds.  Having engulfed my lungs with all the possible fresh air, i finally made my way down to my sauna home, eagerly waiting for the sun to set down thus bringing cool breeze.

So what do you do when you wake up too early (sommeil casser)?
