Obviously, this is nothing new and is happening to other families around the globe but, it's all relative...and relatively speaking - we're all knackered!
The broken sleep situation has definitely taken it's toll, so I posted a silly Facebook status on Monday night...
The next morning (Tuesday) I awoke to find some helpful advice in one of the comments to this post...A very lovely lady suggested that I put a Wood Betony pillow in George's bed. I confess, at this point, I wasn't even aware that Wood Betony is a plant!
I thanked her and replied,
Then something simply marvellous happened, on Twitter this same person told me that she had some growing in her garden and would I like her to send me some? Would I!!!!!!
Today, a beautifully scented envelope dropped through our door, with a gorgeous card and a ready sewn Wood Betony pillow...I nearly wept! George was chuffed to bits that someone he'd never met had made it for him.
"And the helpful stranger?", I hear you cry - none other than @kateepie!
Best of all, you can buy that beautiful card and many others here from Katie's Folksy shop...I'm rather in love with the Cow Parsley one too :) There is a rather stylish website too at www.flemyngdesign.co.uk
Katie also has the A stitch in Time blog...why not grab yourself a glass of something and mosey on over for a read?
It has honestly made my month - a random act of kindness by a virtual friend :)
