Mum says the combination of middle aged lady brain hormones and disturbed sleep after 5 nights of being on call is a killer. She tossed and turned til close to 4am this morning, before her eyes finally closed. The good thing about having some days off is there is not the added stress of knowing you have to get up hours later to start your day. So in order to avoid napping in the afternoon, and to burn off energy she went for a big long walk around the place. It was a lovely afternoon, and with rain clouds threatening to ruin the next few days, mum took her chances outside.
Me - well I have been camping on the number one spot. Mum says it is unusual for me to sleep up here alongside her, especially as it means she can reach over and pat me during the night. Still she is happy if I am happy.
So it is close to midnight and mum says she feels it is time to turn in, read her book for a while and then she should be ready to sleep soon. Sweet sleeps everybuddy.
