Mum found the following somewhere. To keep us from waking you up at OhDarkThirty, try the following.
1 Make home as lightproof as possible so that it is hard for us to tell the time.
2 Tire us out with evening games
3 Feed us our biggest meal before bedtime
4 Buy and automatic feeder to deliver breakfast
At best mum does the second one as once mum gets home and has her dinner, then we can have play time. She does put out foods at her bedtime too and usually there is food left in the morning, so we don't have to wake her up early to gets more noms.
Mum is pretty much back to walking normal again, the achy is going away. Maybe this weekend she will get all finished with the outside work. One last use of the grass eating monster.
Mum is looking forward to the weekend already!
