The kids don’t go back to school until next Wednesday and despite keeping their usual bedtime they have been getting up later and later. The Little Man still wakes up but he’s been getting into bed with me for a cuddle. The girls have not been getting up until about 8am (which, believe it or not, is really late for them, especially Star who is normally a 6am starter!) So, I’m been getting a little extra time in bed each morning.
I’ve been suffering really bad fatigue lately, not sure why. When I get tired I get really tired and can fall asleep at the drop of a hat. I’ve dropped off at the lap top several times, and reading a book, crocheting and watching television. I guess that’s nothing unusual, but the other day I dropped off in the sink while attempted to wash my hair with the shower head. Thankfully, I was wise enough to realise I wasn’t fit enough to take a shower, I’d have hated to fall asleep in there, I may have fallen off my stool! I went out for the first time since Christmas Eve yesterday and fell asleep in the car, luckily, I wasn’t driving!
I was so tired that I slept through Storm Eleanor, despite her breaking my glass topped garden table!
My day out was a trip to Dreams where my son purchased a new bed for himself. We spent a lot of time browsing the beds. I’ve decided that I’d like one with two separately controlled adjustable beds, but hubby fancies one that has a tv hidden away in the bottom. I don’t really like televisions in the bedroom, but if it means he doesn’t have to watch football downstairs then it’s worth it. The kids liked my adjustable beds and got really quite comfortable in them. Star has decided that she wants a Tempur Cloud mattress for her bed costing around £1000 for a single mattress! ….mmmmm…..if she would like to spend more time in it, it may be worth it. (or not!)
I think our bedroom could do with a serious makeover, but we won’t have the finances this year, I’ll just have to keep dreaming! (see what I did there?)
