Oh bother!

I am the proud owner of two alarm clocks. One on the left side of my king size bed and the other one on the right side. One is set to radio, the other one to the annoying beep beep beep. The radio helps me wake up easy and slowly. The annoying one just wakes me up. This week I sleep on the beep side. 

I set both alarms for 4am this morning and sure enough, at 4am, the radio started. And a minute later the beeping as well. I knocked the beeping and calmed down the radio (right before the 4am news) and went back to sleep. Another ten minutes would be nice and I could still make it into work easily.

I woke up at 5am! Apparently I had turned the beep alarm off and the radio doesn't really wake me up that well, especially not at 4am! Now, I needed to be on my bike at 5, so I jumped out of bed, threw on some clothes, brushed my hair, grabbed some bread rolls and made it out the door in about 8 minutes. I thought I might use the car, since that would be the quickest, until I realised I didn't have something to de-ice the windshield with, nor did I have a husband who does it for me!

Bike it was. I made it to work on time and was able to start on time as well. But it sure wasn't the best way to start the day!!


  1. A little blanket or some piece of loth on the windshield can be as usefull as a husband. In some ways. ;-) Glad you made it in time on your bike, though!

  2. Er, I meant 'cloth'. Don't know where I lost the 'c', but obviously I did lose it somewhere...

  3. That should have been 'cloth'. I really don't know what 'loth' is. I hope it isn't something stupid or horrid or..well. You know what I mean.

  4. Well, you don't have to worry about being fired. :)

  5. Oh I do hate having to start the day in a rush like that. Even Scruffy knows that. (See my blog today.)

  6. Sounds like how my daughter does it everyday. I normally wake up before an alarm but if I don't I turn it off and get up. I don't believe in the snooze method!


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
