First things first...
...the new bed!
If you follow may journal you will know my sleep pattern isn't the best. I generally get by on 4-5 hours max per night (not all at once. Usually broken by at least one loo visit) and 3am is a regular bed time.
Last night, after getting into bed (which was a comedy sketch in itself. This bed is much higher. The top of the mattress is level with my hips! It took three attempts to get my backside on it! I think I need a punty up!* :-)). Anyway, that aside, once I managed to get in it was lights out just after 1.00am. Woo hoo, an early night!
I got into my sleeping position (facing left, curled up, cuddling a pillow if you must know :-) and just as the thought entered my head that it would take a while to fall asleep, I conked out!
I woke just after 6.00am. FIVE HOURS OF SOLID SLEEP!
Quick trip to the loo (normally a loo break occurs within 21/2 hours of falling asleep and that's we awake for another two hours) then back to bed. Fell straight to sleep and woke up at 8.30am. ANOTHER TWO AND A BIT HOURS OF SOLID SLEEP!
Another loo break. David was still asleep (late for him. He's normally up at 7am) so I thought I'd get back into bed and read for a while. Fell straight to sleep and woke up at 11.00am! Another TWO AND A HALF HOURS OF SOLID SLEEP!
I can't believe it! Ten hours of sleep with two tiny loo breaks! Unheard of for me for many, many years!
And the best bit about it all....I was completely unaware of D in the bed! Result! Hahahahahaha!
And he also slept really well, probably because he was completely unaware of me! lol
So, based on the first night. I think I like it!
And if that wasn't fabulous enough, I woke up to a video message from Nikki of Esme opening her parcel I sent yesterday (full un-packaging shots in extras :-) Her smiles and exclamations of wow! as she opened her gift made my day :-)) And her insistence at putting one on herself (Nikki tried to help! lol) made me laugh. Little Miss Independence!
Then a short time later the cherry on the cake was the photo Sharon sent me of Faith and Anna wearing theirs. Happiness overload :-)))
Well done Mr Postman. These were only posted yesterday so I am well impressed they were received today....many, many miles apart!
And this evening we've had dinner courtesy of J&F Dine at home, so I didn't even have to cook!
I would definitely rate this as a THUMBS UP day!
*Punty up :-)
