Our No Cry Sleep Solution

  This is our G Man, one day old. There is no baby manual that you get handed at the hospital when you become a Mother. Your friends who already have kids tell you that you really should do nothing but sleep in your last trimester as when you have your baby, there will be no more. (I actually tell my  expecting friends to get lots of sleep and sex, cos once you have a baby they both go out the window.) You laugh, and think it cant be THAT bad, surely? I mean, I’ve pulled a few all...

Sleep; its the new black around these parts…

Image Credit Since we have Moved House, the most noticeable change is that Master J has FINALLY got the hang of sleeping through the night. He has always been pretty good going to bed of a night at , but he would usually wake at least once or twice in the night just for a cuddle, some reassurance or a just bit of Mummy love. He would also wake any time from about 5am calling for me to snuggle in with him to see the morning in. We bought a Gro-Clock which mostly worked quite well to curb wanting to...

Stop Hubby snoring in four easy steps!

The snoring night dance – you all know how it goes. You go to bed, kiss each other good night, he puts his earplugs in and you roll back to back. The first few hours are OK, you are both desperately tired so you fall into a deep slumber but something, you don’t know what, disturbs you at about 1am and you are awake. You are acutely aware that your husband is flat on his back and has morphed into a rabid snoring monster Your eardrums are assaulted in no regular pattern that could possibly be soothing.  The blend of chainsaw and choking...

My kingdom for an earplug.

Upon returning to bed each time you are confronted with the snore monster from hell and it takes a good half hour to get back to sleep each time.

A few delicious Minutes in Bed…

Yesterday I got a lie-in. It happens once a week to ten days depending on Mr Point Fives roster. I didn’t actually go back to sleep after hubby got up to the kids at twenty to seven. This is an example of where Mr Point Five and I are different. He gets up when he wakes up, even if it is his turn to sleep in. I, on the other-hand, am not insane.   I lie there listening to my loved ones do their thing without me. I hear hubby settling the predictable argument of what goes on the kids TV pre...

Meet Boris, my Nemesis.

Meet Boris. I hate him. Night before last I may or may not have stayed up a little bit late having finished  off a bottle of wine all to myself.  I lay in bed (I may or may not have had one foot on the floor) and just as I was about to drift off I hear this SNOOORRRRRE and tssssssssssssssss Its very distinctive and I knew exactly what it was. It was BORIS.  Pissed off cos nobody was playing with him. I’m sure you all have a Boris – a toy that tries to cajole your child into playing...

Whilst the Cat’s away…….

So, anyone who follows me on facebook will know that Mr Point Five has gone away for two nights, three days for his work.  Five years ago I would have been devastated (we would have still been in our first year of courtship, you know all the lovey dovey stuff “how will I survive without sharing your air”? etc etc barf barf.) but five years and two children later I have discovered that there are some perks to having hubby away. 1. You get to drift off to sleep with no snoring monster next to you, who is as hot as...
