Wednesday Night

For me, a good night’s sleep is a premium.  It doesn’t help that I am a very light sleeper.

I hadn’t slept well for the last few weeks and I really was looking forward to a better night as I crashed into bed and drifted off into a deep sleep.

Suddenly I was woken up by a loud buzzing noise.  It was the Mhinisteir’s mobile.    Who was it?  My heart was in my mouth for we don’t get calls at that time of the night.  I was convinced that someone had died!  But no…. it was just someone texting the Mhinisteir from a different time zone.  Arrrgggg!!!!  Within minutes, I could hear his gentle snores but what about me??????  I looked at the bedside clock and the time was 2.40am.  I tossed and turned until 6am before I drifted away.  I was so annoyed with the Mhinisteir for not putting his mobile on silent.

What is it with husbands? One minute they go to the moon and back for you but the next they ruin your beauty sleep!!!!
