Ths is my niece

she is four years old.

This is me and her uncle



the sweetie is for me and the snail is for her uncle who isn't here this weekend which means that she can share my bed.

at bed time the niece is tired and looks like this

I put her into my bed
At my bedtime I tuck her up a little then get in beside her
mostly we spent the night like this
I snoozed intermittently then woke up around 6.30 - her face close to mine

seeing my eyes open - she said

I have been waiting all night for you to wake up

  1. What a little sweetheart! If that's a crown in the first pix, I take it that she's a princess as well!

    1. Not too princessy these days although everything does have to be 'Frozen'-themed

  5. Brilliant. I wonder what would happen if she tried to share a sleep with my dog - who has the same bed geography strategy. I love that she was staring at you when you woke up. That's probably why you woke up.
