Sleep… its an amazing thing if you get it!


It’s a wonderful thing, something you take for granted before having kids that’s for sure.

I love my sleep, I’m an early bird but I like to have a full night’s uninterrupted night sleep. However my children have other ideas.

Kayleigh and Ethan are double trouble, if one wakes, they wake the other. If one needs the loo, so does the other. 5am became a time I saw so often that it became normality. Which is lovely in the summer with the light mornings and the birds tweeting away, not so nice in the winter! The became my alarm clock for work and trust me there was no chance of me buying an alarm clock anytime soon.

Then came the accident and not only was I waking at 5am it was also taking me until the early hours to get some sleep, I suppose I may have suffered with insomnia a little. Everytime I was tired I’d head to bed but the moment my head hit the pillow I was wide awake again.

I spent the night stirring too as I kept waking throughout the night through nightmares or pain. It really was the worst time for sleep just before Christmas.

Today I had some good news though as it turns out I have won a Octaspring 8000 mattress. This really has made my day as I’m still suffering from the accident and Daddyvswork still suffers with a bad back occasionally so this will provide some welcome relief at bedtime.

With the lighter nights and mornings coming in to play I wonder what time Kayleigh and Ethan will be waking… 6am is a lie in for us!
