Morning has broken...
My sleep pattern has settled into being awake till 3am, on the odd occasion almost 4am. I have stopped being annoyed by this because it means most mornings, I get to hear the first little bird start to cheep, which heralds the entire dawn chorus. It is quite a thing to be part of that and it never fails to stir my heart.
Knowing the weather was to be good today, I opened the bedroom blinds when I went to bed, which meant I enjoyed this beautiful scene in conjunction with the beautiful birdsong. It's a moment in time I will never forget and probably my favourite moment of lockdown.
As a result of attending this lovely show, I ended up sleeping till almost 11am! But one of the lovely things about lockdown is...it didn't matter.
Spent a chunk of the afternoon preparing a lamb and red wine casserole. Not really the type of food for this lovely weather, but I was in the mood to try a new recipe and the chopping and preparation of the ingredients was strangely therapeutic. It also tasted delicious, which is always a bonus :-))
