Why is it so hard to sleep?

My bedsheets are cold, the air is thick, my eyelids are heavy.

Why is it so hard to sleep?

The fan is on, the sound pulsates around the room like a low flying airplane. It’s dark but light at the same time, the curtains are twitching in the hot breeze from the window. They let shards of bright light into the room casting lighting bolts across my cot. I’m confused it’s not nearly bedtime yet.

Why is it so hard to sleep?

My nappy is itchy, my sleep bag is stuffy. My thumb isn’t soothing. I toss and turn.

Why is it so hard to sleep?

My forehead is sweaty, my hair is damp creating loose curls at the nape of my neck.

I so want to go to sleep…

It’s 24 degrees in my room tonight and I hunch myself onto all fours, my bum sticking up in the air. I stuff teddies underneath my body trying to get comfortable.

I can’t get to sleep…

I let out a whimper, a sniffle, a cry. I call for my mummy and she’s there by my side. Soothing me with a cold flannel and rubbing my back. She hums a sweet sound that lulls me back on track.

Goodnight Mr Teddy, goodnight Mr Star, off to the land of nod I go which seems very far….

…far away I drift on a sound of humming fans and sweet, sweet singing from far away lands.

A quick snap shot of my spring heatwave weekend

A quick snapshot of my Spring heatwave weekend.

Dear mummy, I’m being lazy as there is too much to tell you this weekend. We did some great stuff, visiting RHS Garden Wisley and the National Trust’s The Vyne and Cliveden. Phew! I could do with putting up my little feet and enjoying a stiff bottle of milk!

Heres a couple of photos of our weekend 🙂
