I’ll be getting up.
OK, maybe 5.00am is just after the deep, wee, dark hours of the morning but it’s still pretty damn early.
That’s right; we have chosen to do the dawn-chorus-breakfast-walk-picnic idea. Unfortunately though we won’t be seeing any Kakapo’s, the cute green bird I posted about the other day. This is because apparently we are going to listen to Kokako’s…a different species of bird altogether. A blue one. My husband seized this as a prime example of me not listening to him, something he says I do quite often.
Pot, kettle, black, is my answer to that.
My husband also made several suggestions in order to make the morning go a little smoother.
“You could go to bed in your clothes” he suggested. “Then you just have to roll out of bed and you’re ready to go”
“Or, better yet” he continued, “you could go to sleep in your clothes in the car. Then we can head straight off!” he beamed.
Obviously I am not taking him up on either suggestion. Don’t get me wrong, I am really looking forward to it. I am loving this Wonderful Weekends experience and trying all these new things. I find myself looking forward to the weekends even more so than before. And picking something new from the book is always fun. A walk at dawn to listen to the dawn chorus sounds absolutely lovely! I just know what I’m like in the mornings so hopefully I appreciate it. I’m hoping to see a beautiful sunrise (first in who knows how many years). Forecast is for rain though, so fingers crossed. We’ve bought cheese and onion scrolls, chocolate Danish’s and strawberry milk for our picnic breakfast.
Will post photos and tell you how it goes tomorrow 🙂
