I decided after reading the book “The Monk who sold his Ferrari” that I was going to follow his advice and start a new daily regime ( is that the right word) John my editor is still laid in bed)   So basically I decided to seize the day by rising earlier.

I didn’t have a particularly good night sleep 😴 after thinking someone was chasing me I all but leapt out of bed at midnight which shook me up for a while. Then I kept looking at the bedside clock to see if it was early enough to get up. I actually almost got up at 5.45am, well my toe touched the floor then somehow jumped back into the nice warm bed.

I lay awake , all was silent and I began thinking about the doctors appointment I had yesterday, I’ve told you before my doctor is Italian and a lovely man. He knows me well now. I’m the women who is sensitive to almost every drug on the marketplace for blood pressure. I have every side effect , then more! He smiled when I went in and said “Hello, how are you doing, slip your jacket off” I was just about to tell him it was a thick cardigan but stopped myself and complied.

He took hold of my wrist , I thought he had received my test results from the MRI scan I had done recently but he just gazed up at the ceiling. Then he looked at me with his big brown eyes and said “well the good news is you have a pulse “. I replied well that’s good to hear. We both had a good laugh about that 😁

Sorry I digress, so I must have fallen asleep again because when I looked at the clock again it was 7.45am.

Right I thought, UP NOW! I won’t lie I found it difficult. I slid my feet round on the carpet to locate my slippers and walked/staggered towards the bedroom door. Shivering with the cold I pulled on my dressing gown and closed the bedroom door behind me. When I opened the lounge door it was like getting off an aeroplane after landing on some tropical 🏝 . We don’t have any heat on in the bedroom but we do in the lounge

My eyes were blinded by a strange orange colour.  Yes, we have an orange rug

The sky was a beautiful orangey shade, I’ve not seen sky this colour for ages because I’m usually 😴😴😴


This alone was worth getting up for. I thought about the monk who sold his Ferrari and remember his suggestion of eating a healthy breakfast. I made myself a cup of tea and reached into the cupboard for something healthy. Now believe me I do not know how this happened, it must have been a Christmas miracle but look what landed on my plate. 😳


A lovely piece of cake 🍰 How did that happen 🤭


Obviously 🙄 I had to eat it, give me a break! At least I’ve started my newregime 😉
