Twice this week I have woken with 0444 showing on the bedside digital clock. That's the trouble with digital clocks: it's never 'a quarter to five' or 'half past six' any more. It's time accurate to a minute. Assuming, that is, that the clock is accurate. Mine tend to be. I'm just like that. An accurate clock person. My main clock in the house is one of those clocks controlled by the radio time signal from Rugby and, of course, all the internet devices automatically correct themselves.
Sometimes this accuracy causes me problems. When I drove one of The Family's cars in New Zealand the time was never accurate so it would throw me because I automatically made the basic assumption that it was.
It's all part of the Edwards Family need to be on time for appointments or at least not to be late.
What I was really thinking when I started this was just how coincidental it was to wake twice at the same time within three days given that my bedtimes vary within a three hour time gap.
Each year when I return I forget just how much catching up there is to do and how much adjusting. Whilst I am away Pat aka Spesh looks after my affairs and without that my stay away would be, if not impossible, certainly very much harder. Thank you Pat.
David and Molly leave tomorrow. Where did the week go?
Molly looks rather sinister don't you think? She's not. She has a lovely nature (unless you're a cat!)
The RNLI Stornoway Lifeboat has a new home since I left last October.
