I'm no early bird...in fact, everyone knows it's a dangerous business even talking to me before my first coffee in the morning. However, today it was a privilege to be up and about, getting ready for work, as the sunrise was absolutely stunning. It was the kind of beauty you only see in pictures or films of exotic locations you can only dream about but this morning, it was right there on our doorstep.
Another lovely thing about today was going back to work and finding Miss Percy (yes, she is a girl and yes, she is called Percy!) still hanging in there. At 21 and with dodgy kidneys and a very dodgy leg, we know she won't be with us forever, so every day is a bonus. She's still a beautiful lady, despite her advancing years.
