Cue the band and start the parade - last night Barrett slept a wonderful EIGHT hours!! I could not believe it. He has teased me for months with six hour stretches and there was even a seven hour stretch once but I was beginning to think that eight hours would forever elude us. But last night, he did it at last, hooray! So I got a grand total of six hours of sleep, all of them in a row.
I am not under any delusion that this will continue now, but it was wonderful last night and good to know that it IS achievable!
