A Plethera of Postings.......


Hullo there ma wee blog,

5.30am and the day starts with a solitary coffee in my usual place at the kitchen table. The kitchen is cold and a vicious wind whips round the corner of the house behind the patio doors a few feet from my chair. Bailey cat has already demanded release from the house and been sucked into the garden through the same patio door opened just enough to let her through. No doubt she will be back once her ablutions are done, wide eyed and fur puffed against the cold, and probably with an accusatory air about her too. That's cats for you.

As usual I open my laptop and crank it up as I wait for the water to boil. Once connected I set the radio to play my favourite station, all talk with just a little music at this time of the day, and return to my home page. I have a gadget there which shows me the traffic situation across Scotland and also give a rundown of how long the delays are in miles and minutes. I see that there is pretty much a clear road network. Not surprising at this time of day but it still prompts me to say out loud a line from one of my favourite films, 'Comfort and Joy' by Bill Forsyth.

"Its Dickie Bird on the breakfast show. Traffic is clear across west central Scotland so if you leave now you will have a clear run to work. You'll be three hours early but what the heck!"

I go to the blog dashboard and there are two comment waiting for me thanks to Scudder and Mornings Minion, two regular contributors, and I publish them without checking the content as I will pick them up eagerly in a moment when I have that cup of coffee that's calling to me. Cup in hand I return and sit down again and also check if any of my favourite blogs have published anything and find a veritable plethora of postings.

My day begins with a smile and the knowledge of a pleasurable hour ahead.

Cheers, one and all.......

see you later.

I think many of us are very possessive of our morning rituals; the phone isn't meant to ring before a certain time, we make the coffee before looking at the e-mail and blogs list. The cats have to be given their breakfast treat before anything else or I fall over them. I wonder if I haven't gotten rather quaint and doddery. Its the only time of day which seems to require this bit of structure.

that was soothing simply to read. Something about the quiet radio, making COFFEE, the wind whipping around the house and nice things to read in the captivating world of blogs.
