Today is Good Friday
The sun is shining, the birds are most probably singing - well the ones that haven't been eaten by The Rents' cats that is - and I am in the countryside for Easter.
French Cousin 2 and I completed our epic journey up here in the dead of night and she's currently still sleeping it off. But being a morning person, I was up bright and early, not wanting to waste a minute of the day...
that is a complete lie.
Here's how my morning really went:
There I was dreaming about being on a lush green hill overlooking the most amazing blue lake when all of a sudden everything started to shake...
I woke in that kind of panic mode you get, sitting bolt upright like a vampire rising from a coffin(thankfully I was sleeping alone) and realised that the shaking was still occuring from the depths of my duvet.
Frantically scrabbling around, I eventually located my alarm clock, reading 6am! Does it not know today is holiday!?!?!
Anyway, once the adrenalin levels get as high as they did this morning, it's very hard to get back to sleep, so I lay in bed for a few hours, willing my heart rate to return to normal and wondering at the incredible shake-awakeability of my alarm clock that I found in the bargain basement bin of a gift shop in the skanky end of town.
Tonight however, it will be turned off...
I want that lie in!
