tarot card readings but felt what I was reading from them was not actually what I was feeling. I have experienced many strange happenings over the years but the one that stays in my mind the most is below.
When Grotbags was born a month early she was so tiny, demanded feeding hourly day and night, this was so tiring and often she shared a bed with us, due to her constant hunger. My partner's dad died many years ago missing the birth of his granddaughter, the first girl to be born into the Glynn family for years. It seemed appropriate to place a picture of her granddad above her cot (not that she slept in it very often), so that he could see her.
One night when she was almost 10 weeks old she fell asleep at the side of me after breast feeding. I was woken by all as I can describe as 'an icy hand shaking me', I remember sitting up in bed and seeing her head under my partner's pillow, I quickly picked her limp and lifeless body up, screaming at my partner to wake up and hitting her on the back. I was terrified and hysterical and when she started crying I could not believe it. To this day I don't know what happened that night, only that somebody was watching over her tiny body and woke me just in time, there is no doubt in my mind that if that something hadn't woken me she wouldn't be here today. From that day on she never slept in our bed and to this day she avoids it even at 10 years old and whilst I miss the cuddles in bed that I had with my boys, I'm so glad she is here today.
