Day 1011 early bird 🐣🦅or night owl?!? 🦉

This was the conversation I had with Craig at around 7.15am this morning. 😆

We’d already blown a gasket 😂 at the Fit Body Farm and were driving back home, when I asked him if he had been a morning person before he met me? 😂 he doesn’t seem to be sure?!?

I love an early morning.

I think it comes from when I was a kid. My Nana and Grandad owned a shoe shop and used to fly down to London Shoe Week, I want to say once a year, it could have been seasonal. I’ll can’t remember.

What I do remember is the magic of getting up in the dark, super early in the morning, to take them to the airport.

I’ve no concept, as to how often we did this but I remember loving it. I remember watching planes take off and land from the observation deck. We watched Nana and Grandad take off. I remember Dad driving us home, after all of that and still being back home before our neighbours were awake.

I loved that. The day felt so long!

I still love that we work out before many people are out of bed. I get a real buzz out of that for some reason. Guess that’s a good thing otherwise I would never make the early morning class.

I think it’s the one time when our world feels quiet and maybe less threatening. I’m not even sure I know what I mean by that but I like being up before everyone’s awake.

I had a busy morning and no luxury of going back to bed, like I did last Friday.

We had coffee before Craig went across the road to get his haircut. I had a shower and got ready then went to Mocha Jak’s to pick up cakes for work today. Forgot to take photos of the cakes, dammit.

I then went to the chemist to pick up my HRT repeat prescription…… It hadn’t come in from the doctors’ surgery.

I had to run down the road to the doctors, to pick it up and take it back up to the chemist. I had WAY too many clothes on for all this exercise!! I was a sweaty mess before I started work. 😂 I did get my prescription but they didn’t have enough progesterone so I have to go back to get that next Friday. Wish me luck remembering that one. 😆

Finally I get to the little gift shop and we have tea and cake! I had a Mint Rocky Road…. I did split it over several cuppas throughout the day!

We got new stock in today and Gayle’s changed the shop right round again so it looks amazing. I always say that!!

New scarves!

I did my first ever little gift shop FB post today too!!

So it’s 5.21pm now and I’m shattered tonight. It is the first full week back and the weather has been so dark and gloomy.

We have steak pie almost ready and I’ll be back on the fast after that. It’ll not be a late night….. I could just shut my eyes right now and have a weeeeee nap!

Oh and it’s Friday the 13th which was gone surprisingly well, considering all things superstitious 😂

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
