Morning Missed

Although I wasn’t that late getting home from darts last night, it was past midnight when I turned my light off.
For once I fell asleep pretty quickly, and don’t remember much until about 6 am when Maggie nudged me to go out.
Hubby was awake, but comfy and warm, so I let her out into the garden, then came back to bed. I have found that I sleep the heaviest between 6 am and 8.30.
As it was still dark, we all settled down again and the next thing I knew it was 9 o’clock!
Maggie was still asleep so I took full advantage, rolled over and slept for almost another hour.

I got up and Hubby was still fast asleep, so I had my wash and got dressed. I took the dog out for her first walk at 10.10, and when I got back, Hubby was still in the land of nod.
For him to have a lie in like this is very unusual, but bearing in mind the sleepless nights he’s had lately, it was good to let him sleep on as he obviously needed it.

He finally surfaced just after 11. We had no plans, so have plodded our way through the day and it’s been quite nice not having to rush anywhere.
He’s done a little more in the garden with our paving slabs while I did the housework and got dinner, and this afternoon I made another cheesecake, this time with chocolate chips.
Should get eight portions out of this one.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
