Yesterday Steve unplugged the DAB clock radio that's by the side of my bed. I explained to him that this was a bad move as it's really knackered and unplugging it causes stations to vanish and the alarm to go off when it feels like it. I went to bed last night and plugged it in - couldn't get the station I wanted to listen to ah well, so I checked the alarm and it said it was switched off.
5.45am the alarm goes off!!!
Stupid clock radio!
Stupid Steve for unplugging it!
I tried to go back to sleep but couldn't so I got up. It was a lovely sunny morning and at 6.15am I was sat outside in the morning sun with my cup of coffee and my book. At 10 I met up with the Tuesday walking group and went for a beautiful 4 mile walk.
I saw my first swallow while I was out walking - yay!! Summer is on it's way!! Except that one of the walking ladies reminded me of the old saying 'one swallow does not a summer make' which means that if you've only seen the first one there's still a chance of a final cold snap before the summer. Pessimist - that's what I say! When I see my first swallow I woop with joy knowing that the warmer sunnier weather is finally here.
Then when I got home I started stripping the wallpaper off my bedroom wall. I got about a third of the room stripped in a couple of hours.
This evening I have been out to my friends house and when I got home I started sorting out some paperwork that needed doing.
So the sun finally appears and I get a new lease of life! Hurrah for the summer months!
