Last night was so so hot. The girls were struggling to sleep in the heat and time was getting on. Fourth born eventually fell asleep, on top of her bed, at 10.00pm – really late for a school night. But 3rd born still struggled. I was desperate for her to sleep as its her last day at Primary today and they had a bowling trip planned – I wanted her to enjoy her last day and not feel exhausted.
After fourth born had fallen asleep I drove to the garage to get some milk. I had all the car windows open – the breeze was wonderful after the heat of the day.
I hurried back – it was now nearly 11.00pm – 3rd born was still awake. “Quick” I said to her “put on your dressing gown and come with me” 🙂
Surprised and bemused she followed me down the stairs. I put her in the car and we drove all around the Ring Road of our Town – her little head hanging out of the car window, the breeze making her shriek with excitement. We laughed together and looked at the full moon 🙂
Yes it was madness, yes it was very late – but it was special x
At last, her cool little body slept xx
