Yes. Incredibly heavy rain on and off for last hour on tin roof = me + DS2 awake.

Me too - woken up by the small pink one fallen between the wall and the bed. Damn hotel beds on castors that roll away from the walls.

LOL Thanks! My DS was awake most of Friday night with gastro and then last night my DD was restless. It's been a long weekend
Right now I am using the TV as a babysitter for DS (bad mummy), DD is napping and I am trying to stay awake while attempting to finish a dance flyer (DH is working on sunday - boo!). As you can see I am doing more wasting time, than actual work...
I miss the sound of rain on tin. I love that sound.

I just hope the 13 year old copes with school today. Poor little bugger.

Oh, and I normally love the sound too, but not when it sounds like a freight train running over you!
Or maybe a heard of drunken elephants performing Riverdance?

Should really go get child ready for school, I guess.
