Just as mum had climbed into bed, relaxed and closed her eyes last night the call phone rang and mum had to get back up, put her clothes on andwent into work. She returned a couple of hours later, slept for two and then she was back in. So she could turn the phone off at 8am. She wishes she could have stayed up and been productive, but alas sleep was calling. I joined her and we napped a lot of the day away.
She did get up for the evening, and felt like some comfort food. So it was a quick lemon chicken risotto and a carrot/swede/parsnip mash. Tasty and enough leftovers for another 3 meals, all portioned off and ready for the next shifts.
So dishes are being done close to midnight and mum will attempt to sleep soon.
