Let Sleeping Dogs Lie …

Hello … we (that is me and the boys) were delivered safely home at 11:30 today.  It was a stressful morning and since we arrived home the boys having checked out their garden have slept; taking 10 minutes to eat their tea and scout outside again.  They have not slept for 10 hours at a time for the whole of last week!

We were aiming to start out no later than 09:00 and at 07:45 I went to get dressed and shove the last couple of things in my packing.  The boys were in the company of Moo and Mother in the kitchen.  I had only been 5 minutes and was half way through my face when hell broke loose!  Mother screamed into the lounge followed by the three dogs and berated Daddy because she was left alone with these terribly disobedient dogs (those will be the ones sitting up watching her shove food into a bag for me to bring home).  So I stopped getting ready and went to supervise the dogs in the lounge because Daddy was been sent on an errand out to the car.

Fifteen minutes later I was able to finish my face then get the dogs into the car.  Loading took a few more minutes and at 08:20 I was in the car waiting to go.  Ten minutes later we were off.  Dog was better on this journey – much less crying and woofing and wee man just lay down.

I had had a really strange feeling about leaving the house this time – sufficiently strong to take important paperwork with me for safety!  Anyway all was fine when we returned and once the car was unloaded the boys settled right in at home.  My backpack is unpacked and tomorrow I can do laundry and some shopping oh and book the wee man in for his jags.

But first … sleep!  I have only had one interrupted night in 7 days and even that was only six hours … my electric blanket is making my bed cosy and familiar and in just a moment the boys are going out for bed time pees and then to their bed … sweet dreams everyone.

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
