Getting up within 5 minutes of of the alarm is a novelty for me. I was actually concious at 8:27. Woohoo!

I had opened the door at about 8:55 to meet a local cat on the doorstep. Not that I'd mind, but she'd managed to sneak in the other day and I had to run around catching her and kick her out. Today, I was onto her tricks. I just put on my best angry cat growl and widened my eyes at her(they don't like that very much at all). She soon got the idea and strolled away. It was safe to put my bike outside and lock the door behind me.

In work 10 minutes later, waiting for the other guys in the office to roll in. A couple of mince pies and a little skiving and I'm set for the day.
