For many Wales may appear like a quiet corner of the western world but this morning I was shocked into wakefulness at 6 am completely believing that the FBI were in the street outside my door!Not such a strange occurrence it seems as they have been here before but their visit was for a couple of hackers. I awoke to the near deafening sounds of a 2oth century fox intro courtesy of YouTube, in that nano-second between dreaming and waking I had incorporated the loud noise into my dream. Anyone who knows Beauty knows that she plays everything WAY too loud, we first suspected autism when Beauty failed her hearing tests. The hearing specialist wasn't sure if she failed due to a hearing problem or lack of co-operation. Anyway........I awoke to a 20th century fox intro(forget BBC2 idents, intros are Beauty's current love) and in those last few seconds of my dream I had opened the curtain to see a red double decker bus(!) and the FBI everywhere! Sadly the FBI were nothing like David Boreanez in Bones but more like the decontamination team in Monsters Inc. Beauty has awoken without me realising, got past my adjoining bedroom and was indulging her current passion of watching film company intros on the computer in the room outside my bedroom........except the volume was so loud even Mr T would have been scared!
I need to wake slowly........take my arthritis drugs and come alive slowly. Beauty who is a fit and healthy six year old has super hero qualities and wakes and is up and running faster than the speed of light. I do not need the fear of God put into me by 20th century fox, do you know how scary that music is when it is over a certain decibel level? Thankfully we are now back to the more sedate and more acceptable watching Bambi on rewind.
The connection between 20th century fox music, a red double decker bus and the FBI ? I couldn't tell you, way too deep for me at anytime of day!

I'm chuckling because I'm like you. A SLOW waker upper.

That would have scared the you-know-what out of me!

I too require a good half a day to wake up properly. A good half a day with as little human contact as possible. After that I'm fine. Honestly.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
