The Morning After the night before

 
6 am returned too quickly
Not even the dogs wanted to get up.
A hot shower
Lots of Clinique Happy
A strong flavoursome MacDonald’s coffee
I wanted to finish The Passengers by Will Ashon today
I haven’t time to prĂ©cis it
But have a look , it’s intriguing ….totally intriguing



No bats or foxes in the lane this morning

  1. I'll look out for that book. I hate those mornings when you have to get up, but your body and mind isn't ready yet. I seem to play catch up all day. Luckily, now, they're few and far between! Hope the shift goes swiftly for you. xx

  3. The only pressure I have experienced for ages is getting to school during exam season - all go for weeks - have to be organised and put my sensible head on - I've browsed your book John and I understand it may include connections - which I have sensed in my day to day encounters for 3 years x

  4. Ah, if only all it took was Clinique Happy. The book does look interesting... just by the character descriptions.

      Oh sorry, a hip-hop group from the '90s. I need to do some research, clearly.

  6. Another day of work, hope it is quiet and you can find a little reading time, maybe read a patient to keep them company.

    1. I was asked to read extracts of the bible out, I found the small print a bit difficult

  7. You'll probably need a few extra cups of coffee to carry you through the day. Hopefully your work day will not be a demanding day. A nice glide through the day would be ideal.

    what an interesting book cover. Will see if our library has it. Ta!
    Hope your work shift is pleasant and your coworkers are a delight.
    We may have thunderstorms later ... or not.

    Hugs!

    1. The whole thrust about the book it the “ arbitrary” nature of how the stories were collected

    1. It’s lovely, I’m often complemented on it ( rather than my sartorial elegance )

  12. MacDonald's coffee is surprisingly good isn't it. We had a motorway break and the shortest queue on Friday was in MacDonald's. I was impressed with my black coffee ... not as impressed with the food, it sat in my tummy like a lead balloon for hours!!
