Fly on the Wall Friday

Now we know these photos are poor quality, but they were set up overnight (not that it is truly dark here at night) and were aimed at Äiti's bed so maybe you do not want sharp focus views of her gaping mouth as she catches flies. But no, they reveal our night time movements. This is my favourite place - when she is on her side I sit on her. Jura is rudely smothering her.
 When she is on her back, Pekka lies on her. It is Veikko's turn to smother her and Seppo is having a stretch. 
Now Veikko and Seppo are on 'upper body duty' while Ruska, Mirsku and Jaava take up the lower part. By the window my yellow blankie is on the bed and also Mirsku's  plush toy'friend' called Mr Elephant.
Now Äiti set up the GoPro as she wanted to see in which position she sleeps most of the time as she has had shoulder and back problems. She also has a sleep monitor (yes she is a true nerd) and this records her resting heart beat which is usually about 41bpm. Imagine her shock when it reported 114bpm one night! Was she dreaming that she was a felociraptor ? Nope - somecat had pushed her aside and was laying over the monitor strip. Hehehehe. It's recorded as the little red blip on the graph below; heart rates only record if the beating can be monitored steadily for a good few minutes so some kitty was having a good kip!

Geez, there's never a dull moment at your house, even when Äiti is asleep!

We unnerstand about sleepin in light cuz we do it all the time here. TBT stays up all night sometimes, so we stay awake with him.

But that chart is AMAZING!

That's a cool chart! Our mom has a chart from when she had a sleep study done, and it's cool to look at too. Interesting how you all take different spots at different times.

There's a rush hour of kitties, on the bed of Äiti, during the night! ;)
