Finally a Break in the Disturbed Sleeping Patterns Jessica | My Life 18 OCT 2011

At last, a break in Jessica’s rather disturbed sleeping patterns which have plagued us over the last month or so! The last couple of evenings have been bliss for a change, with Jessica giving us no problems in terms of going to bed, and even more importantly, not waking up during the middle of the evening and getting Mommy out of bed in the process!

The last couple of weeks could have been caused by anything, but most likely it was a combination of her continuous ear infections coupled with the fever that goes with it, as well as her top front teeth that are steadily making their way out, leaving Jessica looking like she’s wearing a permanent upper mouth guard!

Anyway, for now she seems back to her old self again, so hopefully the medicine is doing its job and the teeth are giving her a little break. Still, there’s plenty of teeth still to come, and I suppose the children at the day care aren’t getting any healthier…

That said, at least the whole household is healthy again for a change, with both Chantelle and I also having finally shaken whatever it was that was plaguing us.

Now just to hold thumbs that Tristan at work hasn’t gone and passed on his H1N1 virus over to me…

Cat Shot: The Hand Basin My Life 11 OCT 2010

Cats. We all know they are fond of lying in some rather strange and wonderful places. So let us take Achilles as an example this morning.

My lovable white and ginger boy seems to have developed an absolute love for… hand basins.

It started at Nagua Bay and now I see it has followed us all the way to Country Mews. He’ll jump up on the toilet when you are in the bathroom, plead with you to open the hand basin tap so that he can drink the running water and once you’ve closed the tap and turned your back, BAM, there he sits.

And sleeps sometimes too it would seem.

Sigh, and here I thought it was only Chantelle’s hair clogging the drains that I needed to worry about! :P

It started back in Nagua Bay, where you'd drag yourself to the bathroom in order to brush your teeth, and BAM, there he was blocking your view!

And now it's happening all over again here at Country Mews. I guess he must really think this is one heck of a safe spot. Secure drinking source, comfy seat and protective shell. Hey, it does have it all now that I think about it!
