During the week, my alarm goes off at 6am. 6am. It makes me feel a little bit tired just thinking of it! But that does mean that anything beyond that, even 6.30, is classed as a lie in. So on my day off or at weekends, it doesn’t take much for me to have a lie in and I’ll take them as often as I can get them, especially with this little monkey by my side.

Lie in

The moment my alarm goes off Poppy is awake and is eager to get up and have her breakfast. By eager, I mean she’ll come and lie right on top of me, poking her nose right in my face. Once she’s had her breakfast, she’ll go right back to sleep, especially if she can curl up by my tummy or in the crook of my knees. This is the best thing ever in my book! There’s something incredibly relaxing about dozing with a sleeping dog next to you. Before long however, she’s stretching out, pushing us both out of bed. That’s when you know it’s time to get up. Roll on next weekend!
