I do believe…

… I have a name! The chosen name has been on my list in one form or another for a while. After I stopped stressing about it, and just let the names gestate for some days it popped up front and centre!

I’ll share the full list (the good, the bad, the simply ridiculous and the plain ugly) after all the names have been registered.

Next step is to fill in my forms for the business registration centre, pay my fee, open a temporary new-business bank account, get my business plan all nice and shiny.

I have a serious case of butterflies (in the tummy!) and some sort of insomnia again. Once the name was there, I couldn’t fall asleep. All of the things I have to do kept crowding in to my mind. Little wonder I woke in the wee hours of the morning again, and the same things whirling around.

Short and sweet today. Moving on up – nothing can stop me! in the words of M People.


Why am I awake at 3.00 in the morning?

Stress? Too much to do and not enough time to do it in, so yes.
Fear of failure? Definitely.
Fear of ridicule? Perhaps.
Fear of the unknown? Possible.
Fear of disappointment? I place quite high expectations on myself, and presume that others have the same expectations of me, so yes. Definitely.
A loud noise? Not this time, although some nights it’s an issue.
Nerves? Yes. Today we interview a possible successor for me, and I’m never comfortable in an interview situation.

All I really know at this point is that I’ve spent the last three hours tossing and turning. Failing to get back to sleep. Not succeeding in calming the turmoil in my stomach. Not even the constant rainfall has lulled me back to sleep. Usually guaranteed to get me drowsy in a few short minutes.

So while I’m awake in the dead of night, I can check the mailbox. Apart from a couple of newsletters, empty of anything substantial. Now I’m posting a mobile blog, just to get the practice!
Next step is to cancel the alarm, push the covers back and hit the deck.

Have a great Wednesday!
