I should be well and truly in the land of nod by now but I think I am just far too tired. I was babysitting (sleep over) last night and my beautiful granddaughter decided to waken at 11.30 just as I was going to bed. She stayed awake until almost 2 a.m. and it didn't matter what I did she just wasn't tired. Don't get me wrong she wasn't crying or screaming just talking and chattering to herself so loudly that she would have woken the boys so it was a case of in bed with me for a while, back in her own bed, changing nappy incase it was that, getting her a drink of milk but all to no avail. She just wanted to play and finally fell asleep just before two. My son came home from work at half two so just as I was falling asleep I heard his key in the door and woke up again. I was then just nodding off and heard Tom crying, looked at the clock at it was only 4 a.m. He wouldn't settle and wanted to sleep in bed with me and as I finally fell asleep I was awakened at half six by Ben getting up and coming into bed with us. My alarm went off at 6.45 which is when Livvy woke again. I gave in, got up, gave them all breakfast, then realised I'd left my work shoes at home along with some other things. Sam came in at 7.15, Marc woke then to take over and take the children to school and child minder so I left, came home, got dressed for work and started work at 8 a.m. Quite a full day really and here I am typing when I really should be asleep zzzzzzzzzzz oops did I nod off.
Had a lovely week visiting mam and she is doing really well after her stint in hospital. She still gets very tired but is beginning to potter around and do things. She's a tough little cookie.
I am now most definitely off to bed. Night all.
