Sleepy mornings!


I thought it was just me that was struggling to wake up properly in the mornings but it seems we are all a bit slow at this time of year. I’m normally heading out of the door by about 5.15 and am usually greeted by a pair of wagging tails and a ‘half-expecting-a-walk-woof’! However the last few mornings it’s more a bleary eyed ‘can’t be bothered……’ squint.Dogs

The cats have legged it too and seem to be having a kip somewhere quiet, and of course there isn’t a peep from the rest of the family until the alarm goes off. Now we have had our first frosts I am wondering if there is any possibility of finding somewhere to hibernate for a little while?

I spent two hours on the touchline watching my daughter play rugby in an early morning frost, on Sunday morning. Really it was two hours watching her fascination in kicking mud off her new boots and amazement that it just came back again. I may be off the hook in the future as she announced that she didn’t think rugby was for her any more (probably because I told her she couldn’t have a bun and hair band under her scrum cap!).

If you struggle waking up in the morning you could try easing yourself in with a new alarm clock radio, and if the eyes are really tired-looking you can turn to the trusted Eyebright Eye Lotion from Liz Earle.PicMonkey Collage- time

Still, looking forward to Christmas now and hoping it will be a white one … Rather than a muddy one!

    Great story Simon, love your dogs. Gorgeous snowscene, it reminds me of where we lived in Surrey. But now back home in the south of Scotland….. haven’t had any snow yet though

    I’m sure it won’t be long before you do Margaret!
