Saved by the bell…

8.15pm… and I could go to bed. Seriously… I could. I have been in my PJ’s with the boys since 5.30pm… watching some terrible Arnie film – Turboman?! I mean what was he thinking?! Or what were the boys thinking even? Or me for letting them watch it?!

Is it the darkness? Driving to and from school in the dark is definitely more tiring than in the day light…

Is it the 6am starts? And 5.30am pre wake up from Willy wanting tissues?

Is it the constant coughing and sniffing from Willy’s bedroom?

My mind is blank.

It is actually quite nice to have a blank mind.  Usually my mind and thoughts are in overdrive…

This kind of darkness is actually really peaceful… for the first time in a really long time, I feel relaxed.  The rain soporific on the window panes…

My laptop hot on my legs… my eyes shut… it reminds me of those late night feeds when you nod off…. only to shock yourself awake as you feel something slip… maternal instinct kicking in…

Ooh and as I write that there is a thud… and that’s Willy… a little earlier than usual, but on queue… his night terror. My little bird… flapping around, asleep, crying.

Over and out… time to look after the little man and time for bed…

Saved by the bell…
