Last night mum was on call. She was in at work from 11pm to 3.20am. It was rather frotsty, and she just got under the covers and was reading her book to settle her mind down, when her phone rang again at 3.30am. So she got up and put her clothes back on, and went back to work. I got up with her and followed her down to the end of our street.
Mum didn't get back til 5.20am, but I was still outside waiting for her. It always makes mum laugh cos I am very loud at meowing at her and welcoming her home, and she is worried that it will wake up all the neighbours.
So - we finally got back to bed at 6am for a couple of hours sleep, mum went back to work for an hour or so, and then we get to have the evening together. Mum will have an early night, which will work for me too.
