Last night it happened.
It’s been, at a guess, months since I had five hours of uninterrupted sleep. Months I tell you. And I gotta say, today I feel like a million bucks. Never in my wildest childless dreams would I ever have considered a 5 hour stretch of sleep something to celebrate. And then, as a bonus, after tending to Darby (still in the process of weaning!) I got another two or so hours. And it was all in the comfort of our king size bed with just Hubs and I, as Chanbe stayed in his big boy bed all night long.
The phrase “fresh as a daisy” springs to mind.
It got me thinking, what else I could achieve in an uninterrupted five hour block. This is what I’ve come up with:
I could unpack from our Christmas holiday and find a place for everything;
I could tidy my whole house, vacuum and mop the floors;
I could write a meal plan for a whole month and shop for it;
I could bake up a storm and cook up a bunch of meals to freeze;
I could hit up all of the op shops in town;
I could meet a friend for a movie and a meal;
I could get a good start on the photo books I’ve been wanting to print out;
I could build a LOT of Lego;
I could watch 7 episodes of Nashville;
I could get all my paperwork ready for the four weddings I have booked so far this year;
I could ring around and set up some meetings with builders about our renovations;
I could have another sleep.
Oh I could go on but this is just off the top of my head. Five hours may not seem like much but oh the things I could achieve!
