I overslept this morning - I awoke at 7.30 - late for me - and lay listening to the birdsong, and looking at the sun peering under the blind at the wondow. Yesterday I made up the bed with crisp, clean sheets, and as I lay there with an arm round each dog, it smelt of heaven.
When I got up and drew up the blind, it was another lovely clear, bright morning, the frost twinkling on the grass, the sky a very pale blue, no clouds, and a faint yellow haze on the horizon. England is a glorious country, so many contrasts in the weather, and such a joy on a morning like today.
It is very peaceful, the only sound the birdsong and the dogs munching their breakfast.
My mood for the day ahead was a little uncertain when I came downstairs, but I then opened up my laptop, and saw the most wonderful messages that had been left on my 'blog' overnight. I have tears in my eyes, because they were the most kind and delightful comments to find, and thank you, you have already set the tone for my day.
I actually have a treat today. I was given a voucher for a facial as a Christmas present so - in two hours I am off to enjoy! I am a nightmare beauty client, because I usually fall asleep the moment I lie down on the couch, and settle under the blanket. And then - oh mortification, I begin to snore!
