Moo hasn’t really got the idea of me sleeping in bed yet, and proceeds to march up and down my bed repeatedly if he gets in my room, pausing only to purr in my face or jump on the window ledge and back. For a cat, he generates quite a lot of movement!
As a result, he normally stays in the East Wing of the house while I’m in bed. For a reason I can’t work out, he always seems far more pleased to see me in the morning than I when I get home after work or being out. He meets me at the door and we have tickles and play with toys before breakfast. Sometimes I think he might even grow to tolerate me!
The other bit of my routine I enjoy in the morning is that time spent stood in front of the coffee machine! I love coffee! I got loads of it for Christmas so am working through it one cup a day. I’m pretty sure the half life of caffeine means that one cup in the morning shouldn’t affect my sleep but I’m working to remove as many stimulants as I can at the moment.
The smell of fresh coffee in the morning is great though. One of the reasons I want to open the D&F Coffee Shop (name to be confirmed) one day is because a few of them I visit regularly seem to have a great relationship with regulars. I think it would be good to be part of someone else’s daily routine.
When someone said count your blessings now
Before they’re long gone
I guess I just didn’t know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Who Knew? by P!nk
