3AM Dad... 1 year on and 200 posts.
This week, I have just surpassed 1 year of writing this blog! This is my 200th post… wow… just reflecting, I am soooo happy I started to write, talk and record my experiences. Some of the posts have made me laugh and made me cry… I hope that you all have enjoyed this last year as much as I have! I hope you continue to enjoy it for a little while longer.

Don’t get me wrong, we are happy for them to come in for a cuddle if they are scared. But of late we are getting at least 1 and quite often 2 little Phantom’s coming into our bed.
