A fresh start
Day…. erm, day something! I’m not sure now. But we’re back to old habits. Up at 7am, tea and writing (skipped the breakfast for now, will have that in an hour or so). The pattern became a little interrupted and I found myself sleeping in or being at family’s homes where I was unable to awaken early. Apparently (don’t quote me on this) the rule is 5.
