Seven things to do when you don’t feel like getting out of bed.

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!


About pensitivity101

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    I had to smile at ice cream before 10:00 AM! Sadly Sparky didn’t want ice cream at lunch – even thought it was near 90F here!!!

    I am an early riser! I enjoy the peace and quiet of the early morning! And I enjoy listening to the birds!
