Thirteen things going around in my brain right now!
  1. It's very early and I am awake again!
  2. It's blowing a hoolie and the Met Office have issued a severe weather warning ~ in Kent severe gales gusting 70 to 80 mph ~ for the whole of the UK except the Orkney and the Shetlands.
  3. Which is strange because Orkney and the Shetlands are far enough north to be used to winds at 70 to 80 mph in the winter! Aren't they? *braces email in-box for abusive emails from Orcadians and Shetlanders who'll say I don't know what I am talking about*
  4. I really don't know why I am awake at this god-forsaken hour of the morning. I figure that if I could stay awake longer in the evening I'd probably be able to sleep later in the morning. But because I got up so early, I'm knackered by 9pm and then go to sleep too early and yes you've guessed it wake 7 hours later.
  5. It does allow me to blog / do school work in the early hours.
  6. It is pissing my husband off majorally! It's nice to know I'm missed :o)
  7. The good news on the BBC this morning is that our hosepipe ban has been lifted ... it's been in place since last June. I could go and water the garden this morning if I wanted too BUT I think the garden has probably blown away!
  8. We're having pasta tonight ... need to buy tomatoes!
  9. I don't have anything for lunch and the thought of a haslet sandwich does nothing for me ... the sandwich shop at lunchtime then!
  10. Off to Su's on Saturday morning as long as she doesn't have the baby between now and then, there seem to be lots of new borns around at the moment. Feeling more than a little broody!
  11. Question of the day has moved ... Indigo has packed boxes and shifted across the Blue Nowhere to a new home. Pop over and answer today's moving question! I am quite pleased actually because now I can answer questions ... Haloscan would never let me play on the old site.
  12. Invicta FM have just told me that the A2 is stuffed already ... that means I have been writing this post for 2 hours ... good grief I type slow or else I've been pfaffing!
  13. Which means that I am likely to be late, so no chance of me updating any photos this morning and I am behind! Ah well, have a good day :o)

It's opposite here. It's very late and I am awake! I need to get to sleep or else tomorrow will be a long day! :)

I know why you're awake. the blooming wind! It woke me somewhere between dark and still far to early. 2.30ish I think. Every time I tried to nod off it wooshed again.

So glad your hosepipe ban has been lifted.

you could never answer your own question on the qotd? that's very strange and far to technical for me to even begin to understand. enjoy your lunch today, i have no idea what that reference to that sandwich even was.

Jane said...

Sorry you couldn't sleep. Maybe tonight will be better. I really enjoyed visiting your blog today. Hope the winds die down!
My T13 is posted, hope you will visit.

it's so funny how we both speak english, but there are so many different words for things on your side of the ocean! I had to look up a hoolie...
Happy T13!

Blessings,
Karla

The State where I live (Iowa - we're in the middle of the country) is full of early risers. I think it's a carryover from all the farming that takes place around here. Personally? I'm a night owl. I think it's insulting to the sun to be awake before it is shining. :)

My friend told me about the weather over there. Stay safe.

Hey you are doing 365 at flickr? Me too! I'll see if I can find you.

Very interesting list. You sure are up very early. No wonder you're in bed by 9 PM. Try not to get blown away and have a great Thursday:)

blowing a hoolie???

my 2 cents said...

Lots going on in your brain!!

Pasta sounds delicious for dinner!

I didn't see this post when I texted you this morning;Spooky.

I like a good haslet but it always crumbles, good with salad cream though (DO NOT PUKE!)

I guess you don't want to hear that it was 80 degrees and sunny here in Boca Raton today.

I wonder if I could beseech you to revisit my site and click on the link about Casey. She is getting such a kick out of the notes, stories, jokes and pictures she has gotten. She would very much like to get something from someone outside the US. So it would be GREAT to hear from you with whatever you might have to say to an 11 year old girl who is bored in the hospital!

Indigo said...

the post doesn't really say, what time were you up at???

Fizzy said...

I hope that you are not up that early today....

Lisa said...

Like you, I end up getting up early each morning...well 6am, which is early for me ok? Course by the time 9 comes around I'm ready to hop into bed and read (which basically means, I fall asleep with the book on my face lol)

If I was waking up at 4am every morning, I'd been asleep by 5pm every night lol

(Glad to read your Dad's home again and I trust he's doing well and behaving himself..or not lol)
