Good Moring..?

I used to be a morning person.

I loved nothing better then waking to summer sunshine, feeling relaxed and refreshed.
I also loved waking up to a seriously rainy, stormy day. I love the sound of the rain, and watching the droplets of water race each other to the ground.

I used to be a morning person.

My love of the morning has fast dwindled over the past 6 years.

Night feeds, early morning, stank filled heavy nappies.. These all put a dampener on the things I loved the most.

Nowadays, I hate the mornings. I'm tired and irritable.

I wake, most days with a headache at best, but usually a migraine. I just don't ever seem to get enough rest.
I don't even think that it's sleep that I need.. Just rest.

By 1pm, my eyelids are heavy and drooping. I'm yawning like a sleepy sloth and longing for a nap.
But I get no help. I get no rest. I'm a 28 year old woman in the body of a 68 year old..

The sunshine is great.. until you add 4 very young and very hot moaning children into the mix and a double buggy featuring an almost 3year old and a chucky 8month old. Oh, and hills. Did I mention the fecking hills?

The rain is great.. until the very same 4 children decide 2 minutes into the school run, that they just couldn't possibly take another step of the 3minute walk, as the rain is hitting their face. And they are scared of the thunder, and lightening, oh and the big grey cloud overhead.

I used to be a morning person...


  1. Hills - in Norwich, be serious! It's not exactly Yorkshire, now they have hills!
    Aw love, I know what you mean, we all need a break sometimes and the smalls are relentlessly needy, there is always something to be done, I find what I need most is head space to think like Julie not like Mummy... Sending you big hugs lovey.

  2. I am going to go and take some photos of the'flat' part of Norwich that I live in and post them for you. I'm not saying that they rival the 'mountains' of Yorkshire, but they are there none the less and with a double bugger and two clingons it's bloody exhausting!!! So there. *blows raspberry*

    Thanks for the hugs, right back at ya x
    I agree. I need a break. I think I'm a control freak, although I don't mean to be..
