An Early Start To The Day

Yes, it is barely 6am and I have already written an email, sorted out my books for a bit of studying, attached the earphones to my iPod (I need it to listen to some items for the chapter I am reading in the course book), switched on my laptop (okay, so I did that before I wrote the email), and got myself into a comfortable position in bed so that I can spend a couple of hours studying before I get myself ready to face the day and go out to do some shopping.

The reason that I am doing these things so early in the morning, is that I went to bed early last night, fell asleep almost immediately and had nine hours sleep before waking this morning.  I'm still yawning every so often, but I feel a bit brighter than I have for several days.

So some early morning studying, followed by a quick trip to the shops, means that I should be able to please myself about how I spend the rest of the day.  It will probably be some time spent reading, and more time spent with the knitting.  Yes, I know that it isn't a very exciting existence, but it is manageable and I do feel as though I am achieving something each day.  And sometimes just surviving the day can be an achievement in itself.

Sometimes I think 'exciting' is overrated.. that's a sign of me getting older possibly! I'm pretty much an early morning person myself though.

Can't wait to see the knitting!

Hope the rest of the day goes well.

I certainly think I would take content and serene over exciting nowadays. Glad you got some sleep, it's almost (but not quite) worth the insomnia for how good you feel when you get a good night of sleep isn't it? However, I cannot ever envisage being alert enough to do more than groan at a cup of coffee at 6am - no, I am far more of a 1am girl. Enjoy your day
