I really am a morning person - you either identify with that or you don't. Lie-ins are unknown to me.
There is something very special about gazing out the kitchen window at the crisp blue, cloudless sky. The sun is playing with the still-green leaves on the trees. A few leaves have escaped - turned yellow - and are skirting across the vivid green grass. Starlings, crows and wood pigeons take it in turns to pick something up for a meal.
The tubes add to scene as they rattle past. They only disturb the tranquility when they are not running. Conspicuous by their absence.
A beautiful scene I hope you'd agree. Surprisingly I live on a council estate in east London. In a couple of hours time ferral children will be kicking footballs at my window, inflicting more damage on my car and creating general havoc.
Long live early mornings.
