Like sand through the hour glass…


Gone are the days where we sleep when we are tired, eat when we are hungry and don’t live our lives according to the day of the week or the hands of the clock.

If we start work at 8am and finish at 4pm we head home to have dinner around 7 in time for bed so we have plenty of sleep to rise at 6 or 7am the next day only to do it all over again.

To an extent I am a routine person but I am beginning to resent that loss of freedom to eat according to my stomach and sleep according to my body. And yet in todays society, if we wish to save the money and buy a house to set ourselves up we don’t have a great deal of option.

Todays society and living in the 21st century costs more than just money.

For anyone interested, this is the book that recently got me thinking. This book as well as watching my nearly 2 year old niece, who needless to say, is completely heedless to concept of time.
