Does this sound familiar…..

So it’s becoming apparent that i have a very unhealthy evening routine. After dinner every night we have a little play time with our daughter followed by a story and then tuck Violet up all snugly in her bed (of course this bit is ok, it’s what happens next that is the problem).
No sooner has her little head hit the pillow when i whip out the laptop. I firstly log on to Facebook to check status updates, how many fans i have and the stats on how many people are hiding the posts of A Little Bit of Cheek. I then open another tab and log on to Skout to check out what questions are being asked, what responses people are posting, who’s signed up etc (this usually takes a while by the time i add my two bobs worth). Next its a new tab for Twitter to see who’s logged on, RT a few posts and add a few posts. Then of course i open another tab to log on to my blog to see if i have any new followers and see if anyone i am following has added any new posts.
The worst thing about this is i then spend the rest of my night flicking between all the pages waiting for someone to add something new. This can’t be healthy. By the time i finally turn the laptop off and crawl up the stairs to bed my mind is racing and it takes hours to unwind and fall asleep.
Am i the only one….. or does this sound familiar?

Violet was less than a year old when her mother was killed. She was found chained to a squalid chicken cage in a rural village in central Indonesian Borneo. Her ‘owners’ regarded Violet as a pet. Scared, infested with parasites and suffering from aneaemia and amoebic dysentery, she was rescued just in time.
To read the rest of Violets story go to care for the wild and click on orangutans in the list of animals to be adopted. We have been adopting Violet for a few years now. We made the decision to adopt an orangutan after visiting the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre in the Malaysian Sabah District of North Borneo in 2006. It was an amazing experience and one that we hope to be able to experience again with our daughter, Violet. Yes that’s right we have adopted an orangutan named Violet for our daughter Violet. The birth of Violet was closely followed by the decision to adopt an animal for her so when we started researching for an orangutan to adopt and we found one called Violet the decision was made!
Read more about Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre and the great work that they do every day.
So next time you need to buy a present for someone why not consider adopting an animal instead of another toy which gets put in a corner and forgotten about.
