Bedtime routine

Racoon

A brief insight, for those who may be interested, into our bedtime routine. At least this is how it was tonight.

Jane: Is it bedtime yet?

Gareth: Yes … at least, it is for me.

Jane: You can’t keep me away from my bed!

Gareth: That’s true … Has the door to the front of the property been bolted?

Jane: Yes.

Gareth: Have the racoons been deployed to their guarding locations?

Jane: What?!

I guess, it made sense in my head.

Dawn over Cellardyke

Dawn sky over Cellardyke

While you were asleep (probably, if you live in the UK) I was up early (05:45) and working on the final few edits and corrections to the first draft of the Teach Yourself Mahjong book which landed on my doorstep about a fortnight ago. So far I’ve only spotted about 15 corrections, which is not bad going.

As I read and pondered, composed sentences and rattled my fingers around on the computer keyboard, outside the sky gently turned from a deep black to this spectrum of reds, oranges and blues. I’m going to miss this view when we move to our new house next month; I’m going to miss hanging out of the Velux window in the roof at pointlessly-early o’clock taking pictures of the sea at dawn. Enjoy it now while you can.
