Rise & Shine

I am not a morning person at all. I love my sleep. My Mother laughs at me all the time and constantly tells me that as a child I was like the Energiser Bunny and never slept. I am obviously making up for lost time now!

Being very much the night owl, I can stay up all night long and sleep the majority of the following day if given the chance. However, I do appreciate seeing the sun rise, the birds singing early in the morning, the dew on the lawn at the crisp start to the day and definitely eating a hearty breakfast at one of our favourite cafe’s.

These past few days have required us to have early starts and this morning I was up at 6am. It was made a little hard considering I didn’t get to bed last night until midnight but once the freshly brewed coffee was down I was ready to take on the world! I was up just before the sun ๐Ÿ˜ฎ but it didn’t take long before I heard little chirps from the birds playing in the Grevillea trees outside the kitchen window so I knew the sun was just about to show.

I must admit that I am enjoying getting up early and seeing the start to the day properly but I just wish my body would allow me to go to bed at a more reasonable time to make up for it ๐Ÿ™‚

What is your favourite time of the day?

  1. I’m definitely a morning person Britt, and always have been, I married a Dairy Farmer so being used to rising early in my ‘single’ years came in very handy when that alarm went of at 4.30 a.m. beckoning us to get to the dairy and tend the cows. Although we retired from farming when we came to Qld several years ago, we still get up early – Don’t tell anyone but I make my Son’s lunch every day, either a nice healthy salad or in winter something hot that he can take in his Thermos (he leaves for work anywhere between 4.30 to 5.30 a.m)….yes, he IS happily married but his Mum still makes his lunch….my Daughter in Law was a late riser when this all began, now they have children who, much to her dismay, have followed in their father’s footsteps and are also early risers…needless to say living next door they arrive on our doorstep at ‘sparrow f–t’ most mornings often allowing my Daughter in Law a much loved sleep ins!!!

    I think early mornings are the best time of day. I particularly love the balmy mornings in spring and summer when we eat breakfast outdoors, there’s nothing better than watching and listening to the birdlife going about their early morning business be it gathering food for their young or gathering building materials for a new nest…..Ahhhhhh….nature at it’s best.

  2. Hahaha you are such a good Mum (and Grandmother). You’d probably get the same bird life as what we do up our end of he coast. Our cockatoos were being extremely noisy at dusk on Sunday night. They would fly from one tree to other in a large group and scream at the top of their lungs. I thought it was fascinating but I bet our neighbours didn’t ๐Ÿ˜›
