Today seems to be turning into one of THOSE days. The sort of day where everything seems not quite right, from getting up too early to forgetting the milk in my cup of tea. Even the weather threw a ‘wobbler’ and dropped an ankle-deep worth of snow on us. In the end, I thought the best thing I could do is sit down and write. Fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong here.
I am regular as clockwork when it comes to getting up in the morning. No alarm clock, no phone reminder, nothing, I just wake up and get up. 7:20 am is my time, not a nanosecond earlier or later! To my shock, this morning, my eyes opened and looking at the clock on the wall I saw the big hand on the five, not the four as is usual, but the five, meaning it must be twenty-five minutes past!!! I jumped out of bed like a man on fire.
It was light and as I ran into the bathroom, the first thing I noticed was how cold it was. ‘Oh bother’, (or something like that) I thought to myself and headed off to the heating thermostat and timer to see if all was well. Everything seemed ok, but then I noticed the time. 6:30 am! It’s set to come on at 7:00 am. I double-checked the time against the kitchen clock and sure enough, it was 6:30 am. I got up almost an hour early!!
Because there was a lot of snow on the ground, the bright reflection of it through the whole house also made me think that it was later than it actually was. After all, it’s still darkish at 6:25 am at this time of the year. Cold, showered and clean I made myself a cup of tea, then promptly forgot to add any milk. I was surprised at how disorientated I became just because I got up an hour early. The snow was a surprise too, well, the amount there was. Thankfully, I didn’t need to be anywhere today, so I stayed by a warm fire.
The phone rang and it was my doctor’s surgery saying that they want to make an appointment for me to have a blood test. That’s strange I thought, I made this appointment last week. After a brief silence, the lady apologized profusely and said that they had made a mistake and yes, there is an appointment made for me for the end of the month. I wondered if she had got up an hour early this morning.
At that, I will bid you all a great day and a super weekend.
