Last night I behaved slightly out of character and poured myself a second glass of wine, although I'm paying for it this morning. This had nothing to do with the two rejections I received in the post. It was a Friday night and I hadn't been out with my friends for weeks. I just wanted to have that second glass and unwind in front of a girly movie (which I did), when normally I would've worked on my novel, applied for jobs or looked through the various paperwork I've acquired from the job centre.
Consequently, I woke up at 3.30am after only four hours sleep, and couldn't get back to sleep. My arms and legs ached and my tummy felt rather peculiar. I was still feeling the effects of my two glasses of wine, and I was desperate for a glass of water. I didn't regret taking a night 'off' though, but perhaps I should have just stuck to the one glass of wine.
I don't know that there's a point to this post. Perhaps it's simply that it's okay to behave out of character sometimes, although in moderation!
