Chirpy chirpy tweet tweet…beeeep…

Day 3   – Imagine that…

…you are tucked up warmly in bed sipping a mug of steaming hot cocoa and a enjoying a good read.  The light fades dimly in the background casting soft shadows around the room, you yawn and snuggle down drifting into a deep sleep as the room is now plunged into total darkness.

Eight hours later you are woken gently from your dreams by a soft light bathing the room like sunshine on a fine summers morning, the rays becoming brighter and brighter as the air is filled with a chorus of gently trilling birds.  You wake refreshed and after a soft cat like stretch, fling off the covers and leap out of bed wide awake, eager to start another day.

Well not quite how it went just rewind to ….eight hours later you are woken abruptly to the sound of continuous chirping birds as well as the intermitent sound of two other beeping alarm clocks (that were on standby just in case) and realise you have failed to wake up at all this morning.  In fact hubby obviously woke first and judging by the empty side of the bed I presumed was already in the shower escaping the noise.

One by one I hit each of the alarms until silence at last….. aah much better until that is hubby appears back in the bedroom draped in a towel and whistling the same b***** dawn chorus.

Anyone want to buy a Lumie Bodyclock – good as new – one careful owner!

    1. We got it from John Lewis so probably – we returned a clock last year because it ticked! I know that sounds rather strange and I must admit the assistant thought I was bonkers but it had a very quiet tick when I first bought it but over the course of a month the tick got so loud it stopped me from sleeping. I exchanged for another of the same and that has been fine.
      Maybe exchanging this for another might have a different effect on me – like I wake up on time!


  1. It sounded so blissful when you started this post – such a shame it didn’t end like that! It seems your hubby has grown accustomed to it? Persevere Vivian, I am sure you will love it in the end! x


    1. I think I quite like the sound of that – if I could just sit there half asleep whilst breakfast was served to me as someone brushed over my eyelashes with mascara and pulled my boots on and got my bag ready…oh and lunch


  2. I giggled my way through these posts: the felines at our house refuse to let us sleep past 5:15 am, even on weekends. I would love to see how they would react to the sound of a flock of birds unleashed in the apt!


Before you go I would love to hear from you...
