SLEEPLESS BEAUTY

I am trying to be as quiet as possible and the guinea pigs have been told that if they start weeking hysterically then their daily treat of cucumber will be withheld.
And why?
Because it is 8:51 am and Beauty is still asleep.
She is an absolute sweetheart but sleep deprivation is a very cruel thing!
Having a child with profound autism who also has sleeping problems is a very tiring thing, it is like having a baby in the house for the last 7 years.
I am way too old for this!

To sleep between 10pm and 7am is all I ask!

Sleep deprivation is cruel. C only sleeps between 3 and 5 hours a night. I dont know how he does it!

Hugs. She's a beauty. I don't know how you manage, but you're a trooper.

Hi Casdok,
Wow!
I don't know how you cope with that little amount of sleep.The lack of sleep only really gets to me when she is on holiday from school, roll on Monday.

Hi Ashley,
I definitely cope better during term time. I am so looking forward to tomorrow as Beauty is going out with the child minder for 3 hours in the morning.Extra rest time.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
