I have always been a morning person. When I wake up at ten I feel like my day is half gone and I’m not good at motivating myself after three in the afternoon. Nights are for sleeping and mornings are for getting things done. Before I got a job, I slept in most mornings. But… Continue reading Early Mornings
I may be a complainer of cold weather, but nothing has prepared me for this. For today. It was, quite legitimately, freezing. I’m talking strong icy wind, on-off rain, a struggle to write and hold the steering wheel.
