From my diary

This morning I  have received another chunk of the translation of the Vita Compilata of St Nicholas of Myra.  This is going well, and the end is not so far distant now.

I’ve not been able to blog at all lately.  But I have a nice backlog of blog article ideas to work on when I get a moment (which will probably be at Easter – only a month away now!)

I’m working away from home at the moment.  But I’ve been having difficulties with my hotel.  It’s hard to blog when you don’t get much sleep!  Naturally I ask to be put in the quiet section of the hotel.  The problem arises when some chap who works nights arrives.  These gentry are not quite and sensitive souls, but they do want to sleep in the daytime.  So they always ask to be put in the quietest part of the hotel, where all the light sleepers are.  Then at 4am they get up and slam the doors and wake up all the other guests.

Maybe all of life is like that!

  1. Can you sleep with earplugs in? Not everybody can, but they can be very helpful if you are having noisy neighbors.

    The other way to go is to have a very quiet noise going, like music, white noise, or an audiobook at whisper levels. It can help you ignore louder sounds.

  2. Thank you for these suggestions. I don’t get on with earplugs. But I have found an ordinary desktop fan, pointed at the wall, is quite effective in muffling minor sounds. Nothing muffles a door slamming tho.
