2 am

I have pregnancy insomnia.

Easily woken and difficult to get back to sleep, I've decided to do some blogging.

Not that blogging puts me to sleep. Just that its better than listening to Hunna breathe, reaaalllly heavily in his sleep.

Also, its not insomnia because I'm uncomfortable either. It's just can't switch off insomnia. Which is way worse, cause otherwise I would totally just go get one of those crazy looking worm pillows and go back to sleep.

I probably have subconscious pregnancy sleep issues - I wish I knew what they were so I could solve it all ready and go back to sleep.

Last week we finally ...finally got our first ever couch.

For the first few years we didn't need one because we mooched off Mummy Gibson or The Shire.

But then last year we grew wings and flew to Phillips.

But our furniture was sparse. ( thank goodness for my glory box obsession as a teenager )

When we moved to 3056 this year, we sold most our furniture so we wouldn't have to pack it up ( genius ) because this was my second move whilst pregnant I wasn't prepared to pack and lug much.

Plus our new apartment is teenie.

Mum says its not big enough to swing a cat in. I decline to comment on swinging cats but I can quite happily dizzy whizzy Boy in my empty lounge room and that's good enough for me.

Anyway, we sold anything that wasn't an absolute necessity.

Our new teenie apartment philosophy is love it or leave it.

It means if we are debating on something it generally means it won't come home.

So basically we've been sitting on the floor for 10 weeks since we moved in.

And the floor is hard. Especially for my soft pregnant ligaments. And I'm pretty sure the carpet doesn't have underlay, so it's like sitting on cement. Literally.

But last Tuesday, thankfully, our couch finally arrived. And a week early. And exactly two days before we had visitors so they didn't have to sit on the ground.

And it was awesome. And it is awesome.

I'm pretty sure I'm in love with three things right now. Hunna.. Boy.. and the couch.

Also, its on castors.. So I can push it around.

It moves about a hundred times a day.

Into the sun. Closer to a power point so I can charge my phone. Closer to the computer when we Skype. Around the room while I vacuum.

Yep. It's awesome. Why did I never think of castors before?

Have you tried cleaning behind/ underneath a couch before?? It sucks.

Actually, cleaning just sucks. So at least the castors mean I can get it done in 0.2 of a second.

Anyway, I just want to advocate putting wheels on your couch. If you haven't done so.. do try it.

Also. This whole post was about a couch. I'm sorry. I'm pregnant. It's 4 am.
