The morning alarm rings. Mum reaches out to hit the snooze button. All good intentions have to wait.
We love our morning snuggles. We are all still a bit sleepy and the bed is warm. There are no sounds outside still.
Once upon a time, I used to wake up Mum and tell her I needed to go out. Except it was early – around 6am. Mum used to leap out of bed and rush me out the door. Well, those days have long gone. These days – there’s something called the snooze button.
Now how about some breakfast?!?!?!
May’s comment: Every morning I have all the best intention of getting a head start. The alarm goes off and as I reach to turn it off, I feel the tight curled up body of Darcy against my back. “Miss Aloof” loves to snuggle up in the mornings. She plonks herself right up against my back. I don’t want to move in case I wake her up. I don’t want her to move. I like the feel of her body against mine.
I search for George. He’s usually at the back of my legs.
And I love it! I don’t want to move. I just lay there soaking in all the love.
But they are not really asleep. They are just waiting for me to stir. The minute I do so, they will both immediately just sit right up and look at me. When I sit up, they will immediately jump off the bed.
George will stretch and then do his spins and Darcy will be stretching – they know what happens next.
