Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 93

“A change is as good as a rest .” -origins unknown.

So ‘they ‘ say… and I’m all for this saying. But  it doesn’t always quite work out!

I’m currently sat at my in laws house on a Sunday Morning. We had an impromptu sleepover last night. 

Cue frantic rushing back and forth to collect various items for the kids, food and water replenished for our furbaby Sonu Singh who would be flying solo for the night, and various chargers and electronic gadgets!

Hubby Dearest wanted to do this for ages. A night in his old home. Mum and dad in law are away visiting the Motherland at the moment so my bro and sis in law are home alone.

We’ve had a good time. A relaxing evening together and I think the kids had fun too.

But… I’m afraid I got no rest.

I slept with Lil Princess and Hubby Dearest slept with Lil Man.

And the girl snuffled her way through the night, then started whimpering. 

A nightmare in which a class mate of hers was strangling her (!!??) meant she slept fitfully. Meaning I did too. 

And my natural body clock wakes me around 6.30 as well, so a late night, coupled with the automatic wake up call meant not much sleep. 

Then there’s the fact that it wasn’t  my bed! Nothing can match your own bed for a good night’s sleep!

But… ever positive, it was a good time to reconnect with the family. Since mum and dad have gone we have been spending more time, just the four of us, rather than with the others. It was needed! 

The kids are trying out badminton coaching this afternoon . .. I may take the opportunity to catch up on my sleep !!!

Have a wonderful Sunday Peeps!!!

    I can picture the scene back at your house … Spidey and kitty hanging out with cans of beer and watching TV. He’ll be back on the shelf when you get home with a hangover.

    That is very brave of you to leave Sonu Singh alone to explore kitty possibilities for mayhem! On the other hand, you accept chaos when you bring a cat into your life, and the opportunity to spend time with family this way is a great way to spend time! Sounds like everything went well, save the sleeping issues. (How true that one’s own bed is more comfortable than any other!)

      We’re back with him now and he doesn’t appear to have had too many friends over! 😉 He’s twirling around our legs now, making sure we don’t go anywhere now!!
