February's Alphabet: Y is for Yawning

This is going to be a short one because I am so tired! I love Heidi but she is a typical cat... meaning that she runs around the house at silly o'clock in the morning, crashing into everything and meowing all over the place. I'm not so good at falling asleep... at night. Give me a sofa in the middle of the day and a blanket and I'll be out like a light; but once i'm in bed it takes hours for me to drift off. 

Last night I was up at 3am after having my hand licked by Heidi as it was hanging over the edge of the bed. I treated myself to a midnight pee and then had some Heidi cuddles before closing my eyes to go back to sleep. An hour later, I was still counting sheep. I have a meditation app that usually/always makes me fall asleep when listening to it in the day. I went through the 20minute recording twice before turning the voice off and having 20 minutes of white noise. I must have fallen asleep as I woke to my alarm, wishing it was the weekend. 

I'm one of those people who need 8 hours for their brain to function, so today was a struggle. Tomorrow is an early start and a busy day, so I'll sign off now to go and tuck myself into bed. 

(p.s. Liam took a photo of me in bed on Valentines day (...it's not what you think; I had a migraine so went to bed at 7pm. Who said romance was dead?!) but I didn't think you'd want to that... so hear's a photo of Heidi sleeping... ain't she cute)
