"Learning to live and living to learn"
I awoke to the realization that my body clock and new iPhone 12 were out of sync. I took a deep breath, practiced some rudimentary mindfulness and managed to stave off the potential panic attack. On the plus side, this means that we will soon say goodbye to those muddy morning walks along the bank of the river, head down against the wind chill.
I'm not someone who likes to lie in bed late on a Sunday morning although this was not always the case. The older I get the less time I want to spend beneath the duvet. In any case, if I'm honest, its the dog who decides when I get up and 6am is the absolute deadline. Lily (the dog) insists on the first reconnaissance patrol at at 6am because that is when the enemy (the neighbor's cat) launches manoeuvres from the boundary fence along the river bank at the back of the house.
But I digress!!
I've run through the usual routine and thus far I have settled of the following 3 key learnings:
1. Cats are always up to no good in the early morning;
2. Investing in a lottery ticket for the Saturday evening Lotto is no substitute for sound financial planning;
3. Reading the Sunday newspapers is not conducive to a positive frame of mind.
Have a relaxing day and brace yourself for the week ahead.
