Now here’s an interesting thought.
How many times have we not wanted to get out of bed for a variety of reasons?
When I was working, I could never understand why the bed and duvet were ‘just so’ when the alarm went off, that I was finally comfortable for the first time in hours, it was damn cold out of the covers, and why couldn’t somebody else could let the dog out.
However, we have to get out of bed, so what could possibly be of enough interest to prise us from our warm and cosy comfort to face the day?
Watching the sunrise. Dawn is a wondrous thing, and to see the birth of a new day can be inspiring.
Hot and sticky? How’s about a nice warm shower with plenty of lather and a good pummeling of the head when washing your hair.
Fry up for breakfast. Bit of a bummer if you have to cook it, but the smell of bacon is tantalising to the taste buds which immediately seem to wake up ready to do battle.
Added bonus if you wake up to the smell of someone cooking your breakfast for you!
Walking the dog along the beach before the grockles invade the sands.
Ice cream before 10 o’clock. On holiday in Cornwall, it was nothing for us to have cornettos for breakfast.
Curling up with a good book and some chocolate where nobody can disturb you.
Blogging! That’s where I look for inspiration and social contact. Masks not required and social distancing is the norm!
Now I’m retired, I can get up when I feel like it most days so it’s not a chore!
