That's about it, really.
A thread for those of us who aren't asleep, for whatever reason.
Badgerlette decided that sleeping from 8 to 11 is totally enough sleep for a little girl, and after patting, rocking, bottling, driving aimlessly, she's watching superted.
I give up, I'm tired. She'll collapse eventually.

Well hello there Miss Basher original.gif

I have no baby excuse for being awake. And now the storm is nearly upon me I don't think I'll be sleeping just yet.

Beanie has excellent taste in shows. Next you should watch Bananaman.

I'm watching a Tim Minchin doco.

I'm awake due to the storm, which had me going in to check on my girls and finding miss 2 years old sleeping in vomit. So a late night shower for us. I hope she is ok and not sick.
DF will be home from work in an hour or so, so I may as well stay up.

Kwyji! We've got some epic lightning here, but not much else. Enjoy the storm for me, yeah? Love a good storm.
I'm thinking of starting her on Blue Peter xD

Miss Cookie, hope baby sleeps for you soon.

Monkeysmum, you POOR thing. *slightly awkward hug* MS is bad enough, HG is a whole new league. Make sure your tablet is charged and bagged always!

Runaway- Hope your DD is ok and the storm leaves you alone mostly.

Badgerlette is still awake. Never mind, I have tea!
What did all we insomniacs do today?

I'm here too. DD2 has been up ALL.NIGHT!

The last couple of nights have been the same but at least then she's collapsed around 3am. Not tonight. *sigh*

Thank goodness DH is still on leave tomorrow so I can get some sleep
