Early mornings

I couldn't sleep this morning, so got up just after 5am; cups of tea and some work on the forum, Scrabble, etc kept me busy. I find my mind much clearer first thing, and any problems or worries from last night seem to recede and become surmountable. A night's sleep works wonders, and I'm lucky (in a way) that I can do on 4 - 5 hours or so most nights. My bedtime varies, not being a creature of habit lol
I sit hear listening to that sound that is unique to almost being able to hear the radio but not quite - unique to early mornings when the radio is in another room; the traffice is beginning outside - tractors and lorries (albeit few) at this time of day, it's still pitch black outdoors and raining. Mentally planning my day too, although the freshness of morning may make me a bit optimistic on that front lol
So - you? Early bird or not?

And another rant.............

The Archers is fiction, it is not real, therefore it has no place on any news bulletin on the radio whatsoever. As I read in The Guernsey Potato Peel and Literary Society*, it is about people who never existed doing things they never did.
Please people, get real!!

*by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows - one of the best books I've read, give it a go.
