It was painful, sun shining in, sleepy eyes, body all snuggled into a 6" duvet.
Who in their right mind could wake up "cheery" - as was my mother's plan - to...THIS!
The Military Training must have caught hold. As soon as my peepers open, I am "boing" up and out of bed, with a smile on my face at World Record Speed that would put Usain Bolt to shame! And how can I do other than "snap those window blinds up" and sing this Morning Ritual that I loathed. However, each generation has to do their own little spin on things. Mine is sung in (wait for it)
And, by the way, ask my children, and housemates and next door neighbour. They will very proudly
I only now wait to see what version my own children will sing. I dearly fear Rap, or Electronica or Gawd Forbid and Lord Help my Grandbabies...Heavy Metal!

bringing it all together
So remember, tomorrow morning, when you are feeling all lazy and sleepy and just turning over and going back to sleep, I am there, with my OPERETO voice, singing just for "you",,,
