Hello June - Welcome Winter!!! Actually when mum walked out of work this afternoon, she had to take her jacket off as it was surprisingly warm and not the chill she was expecting. So she enjoyed her walk home - especially as she work was almost over. She is on call until 8am, but a quiet on call where one seldom gets called in.
I got asked if I slept under the covers? At the moment I am strictly on top of the quilts, and I prefer to sleep not touching mum. This is the 10-16 degree C rule. The 1-9 degree C rule is on top of the covers but touching mum by sleeping between her knees pinning her to the bed, and making her joints seize up the next day due to stiffness. Being between her knees also makes me out of her reach as her arms can't reach down to pat me. The under 1 degree C rule is to cry and want her to lift the top quilt so that I can then snuggle down by her knees, or sleep beside her touching her and preferably moving her out of her warm spot.
After 7 days of 6am alarm calls mum is pleased to have a day off tomorrow to relax and take it easy, then a short work week of just 3 days work before she gets next weekend off. Lovely. Hope your week has started well too.
