Brilliant

Living, working, playing, eating and sleeping in one-room small room is not without its challenges. Sleeping is really, really difficult. So for me Jerry’s latest game is just brilliant.

Every night I struggle to get him in bed, and if it’s not pouring rain outside I often take the laptop out and sit on the floor outside the front door until he goes to sleep. The next morning I get up around 4.15am-4.30am so I have some uninterrupted time to write before Jerry wakes up, because once he’s awake he’s a cute but annoying barrage of chatter, questions, demands and hugs.

So yes I’m loving the way he’s started making his bed like a little tent each night. It means I can stay in the room and keep working because he goes to sleep right away. Then in the morning I can put on a small desk lamp on the other side of the room without waking him up.

Brilliant.
