Simply a Moment - May

It's 6.45am on Friday 16th.

Suddenly I am wide awake and the noises outside tell me I am late. Oh no! I have to take Miss Boo to school and she will be here any moment.

I scrabble for my glasses and swing my legs out of bed, sitting up at the same time. Mr M continues to snore gently beside me. Now I remember to be quiet and careful as he is on afternoon shift so won't appreciate a morning wake-up call.

Still in a state of controlled panic I turn and peer at the alarm clock to see exactly how late I am......... 6.45am? quarter to seven! Oh for goodness sake! I thought it was 8.45 and I was late. Now I am awake and out of bed and I could have slept another hour at least!

I get dressed and go downstairs and out into the back yard to let the chickens out. They will appreciate an early start to their day of dust baths and insect pecking. I go back in and put the kettle on. Time to read for a while I think.

This meme was invented by Alexa at Trimming the sails why not pop over there and read the other momentous stories. This is the last time you will be able to do this as Alexa has decided to retire the meme and we will have to find something else to write about.

What a great moment and one that has happened to most of us these beautiful light bright mornings.

I would look on that mis-reading of the clock as a gift. You just managed to get an extra hour in your day. Reading is the best way to spend it!

Oh I hate when that happens to me! The sense of panic seems to last for hours.

I hate those sudden jerks in wakefulness because you think you've overslept!
Glad you weren't late for the school run.

:o) What a fun post to read. No fun to wake with a start, but great to have that extra time in the morning!

oh I've done that and am always torn being grateful for the extra quiet time or cross that I didn't sleep in.

Glad you had time for a read :)

It takes me a good bit to recover, my heart is pounding and my mind can't totally focus, hate it. Glad you found a way to enjoy the quiet.
