4am is the perfect time to wake up.

I have been up since 4 this morning. Do not ask why. I have no idea, but I was so wide awake that I came downstairs and here I am, one cup of coffee and 2 hours later. Make that 2 cups. And a biscuit.

I did remember to watch the lunar eclipse last night, and the moon did indeed go red, I can report. It was such a clear night, and consquently, very cold , but at least we didn't have cloud.

David and I spent the evening with friends who live in a village in the north of the county. They had to have their boiler replaced a couple of weeks ago, and when it was taken out, a mountain of soot fell down the chimney and covered, and I mean COVERED the entire house. Every single thing in the house. Every room. Every cupboard. Everything. And even though the industrial cleaning company has been through the house once, it is still in the air, and will continue to settle for ages. Next come the painters. Horrendous mess. Not an ideal scenario to walk in on after a long day at work.

So - what have I been up to this weekend? I have played with the babes. Caught up with some friends. Had tea to celebrate a birthday. Flopped. Talked on the phone. Wandered around the blog world. Good stuff.

Now it is 6.30 am, and I do believe I will crawl back into bed and snooze. Or read a book. After 4 hours sleep, I am going to be a pleasure to be around by this evening.

Sounds like a busy weekend. I hope you were able to go back to sleep for a few hours!!
I can't imagine dealing with that mess. How awful!! I feel like the dust collects faster than I can take care of it, but that is so minor compared to this. I feel so sorry for them.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. And have a good week at work!!

I had anticipated the lunar eclipse with camera in hand for several days. We had almost complete cloud cover last night and I was not able to see it. I was so disappointed.

I'm here from Morning Glory's. I'll come back and visit when I have a bit more time to explore.
Stop in and visit anytime...

Sounds like you had a lovely weekend. What a mess for your friends. That's one of those, where do you begin. I happen to be someone who requires only 5-6 hours of sleep so I'm up a lot in the wee hours. In fact it's my favorite times of day.

We could actually see the lunar eclipse down here in Venezuela as well. Makes the world seem small, doesn't it?
