Sunday morning is without doubt, my favourite time of the week. I look forward to getting up early and having a leisurely breakfast, freshly brewed coffee and reading the papers. I do this each morning but Sundays are quieter. No sounds of traffic, trains or other annoying background noise, just the chorus of magpies and other assorted bird life, welcoming the brilliant morning sun as it pierces the pre- dawn sky.The tranquility I find in this early morning solitude is better than any tonic!
I have always been an early riser, in fact I am also a night owl. My body seems to function well on 4 -5 hours sleep and has done so since I was a teenager, working up to three jobs to make ends meet. Those years of working such unsociable hours screwed up my sleeping patterns completely. Many years ago I did , for a short period of time, experiment with sleeping medication, in order to get a good night’s rest. My advice for anyone is DON’T. They are highly addictive and when you come off them , sleeping is nigh impossible. Now , I spend those waking hours while others sleep soundly, reading, attending to domestic tasks, meditating, listening to music and I have been known to go mad in the kitchen, baking. LOL
Many thanks for the emails and comments I have received this week. I appreciate the contact and the feedback. Those who receive regular email feeds or subscribe to live feeds may experience problems for the next few weeks as Google have, in their infinite wisdom, decided to shift all their feedburner accounts. They have advised that there could be minor disruptions( there have been major disruptions already)in the short term. What can I do? Be patient, I am sure they will have it up and running correctly, eventually 🙂
