And it is not caused by Sqk. I am having a period of waking at somewhere between 4 and 5am and not getting back to sleep before I am up at 6.30am. Initially started waking because of DH having massive coughing fits at that time (he has an ear infection). he got back to sleep fine but I didn’t – suspect it may be everything going on at work at the moment: Accreditation visit coming (which means lots and lots of paperwork to sort), lots of stuff happening in research and also into last three weeks of term.
Getting on top of research and making progress on the accreditation stuff – not going to make deadline of next Monday from my line manager, but hopefully by end of next week. Problem is everything has to go via centre and we need to submit it all by January 20th. Mind you will then have to chase evryone else – and try to track down all the marks for last year….
Sqk is doing well – being a cheeky monkey at nursery it appears at times – and also deciding painting sponges filled with paint are good to chew. He has a chewy for that very reason and they are getting better at using it. he is coming to visit us in our bedroom most mornings but is being pretty calm and it mainly seems to be so he can be certain of saying goodbye to Mummy (and getting kisses and cuddles).
Friday night is a big night – we are trying a sleepover at local Granny’s for the first time. Then next week we start childminder transition process – I have to remember on Tuesday to come onto our estate rather than using auto-pilot to his current childminder’s house.
