Having a lie-in today

A rare opportunity – isn’t it bliss?
Hubby was the one to get up with the kids
Oh how I’m making the most out of this
I’m getting a lie-in today


How comfy the pillow feels under my head
How wonderful to be able to snuggle in bed
For the next hour or so, to the world I’ll be dead
I’m getting a lie-in today


Closing my eyes and just drifting away
Lulled to sleep by the muffled sounds as the kids play
If only each morning could start off this way!
I’m getting a lie-in today

I'm having a lie-in today - an ode to the joys of sleeping in

  1. Heaven X 10,000! I wish I could do it though! Hubby and I just always get up together and the gremlin usually drags me up even if I try and zzzz! This may change with two. Enjoy! I hope it was lovely xx #twinklytuesday

    1. The girls usually drag me up too but I’ve been so sleep-deprived recently that hubby was quite insistent they leave me alone and let me sleep – it makes for a much nicer mummy! πŸ™‚

  2. My other half and I both work shifts so try to take it in turns to get up at stupid-o-clock with the little one! Neither of us are morning people, but the little one certainly is!! #twinklytuesday

    1. Taking it in turns sounds like a good plan. We’re either usually both up or its just me so a lie-in is a rare treat!

    1. Thank you – it’s certainly blissful on those rare occasions when it does happen! πŸ™‚

    1. It’s such a wonderful feeling isn’t it? So lovely to link up – thank you for hosting πŸ™‚
