It is so easy to fall into bad habits, isn’t it? You see, dear Carl leaves for work at around 7.15, while I don’t leave until 8.30. So each morning I wave him off, have a shower and then have breakfast. Usually in the living room, with the tv on. Doing this I discovered that I quite like ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ where I always used to think I didn’t, but now that has been taken off for Big Brother, and, well, my mornings have not been quite as scrumptious as they could have been!
So this morning, I abandoned the living room altogether! I always have the bedroom windows thrown wide open to let in the morning air, and I reclined on the bed with a buttery soft croissant, a cup of vanilla coffee, and my new book- ‘The Art and Power of Being a Lady’ (A finishing school with va-va-voom according to the reviewer!) In the background, Glenn Miller serenaded me first with ‘In the Mood’ and then ‘Moonlight Serenade’. And even though I had to be out by 8 O’clock for my early morning start at work today, it felt like I had bags more time than usual, and it was all so much more scrumptious and luxurious!
From now on I resolve to start every day with a little music and spoil myself!
