The pain behind my left eye which has plagued me for days is worsening, the light of the computer monitor is shrieking at me, the burden of just too many responsibilities in different areas of life are weighing me down and the week's accumulative lack of sleep has at last caught up with me.
I'm going to give in, turn off the computer, take some painkillers and go to bed at the same time as Anna-mouse. I might even let her sleep in my bed, a once-a-week treat usually reserved for Fridays. I'll pretend it's for her, but really it will be for me. Nothing like the sleeping form of your own child beside you.
