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.

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

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.

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?

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

The wild wind does not help, nor does the 13 year old coming down at 3am.
