Hmmm JFB - I woke at 4:15 too today. I feel knackered now.
Kismet, Spencer gets like that sometimes and had a terrible time a few months ago of waking in a terrible state. I thought he was waking up all dredgy from his sleep. Everything I did was wrong, so I learnt to leave him alone - open the door, peek in to see if he was smiling or scowling and run back to the lounge room. In the end he would hang out in bed until he was ready to come down. I made sure I had shut the blind of the window in the hall opposite his room so it wasn't too bright when I opened the door.
Well, we are off to Singapore/Croatia on Thursday and we all have colds!! DH seems the least affected. Archie has just finished antibiotics for an ear infection, and woke this morning with a green snotty nose, and Spencer has been off all day. I think he has a sinus/headache cold. I am drugging them up and I think I'm going to have to make another trip to the chemist to stick up for in flight!!
Hope all the newbies are having lovely times with their bubbas and that things get better for everyone soon.
Spring is here at least and weather is going to get lovely again soon.
