Waking up at 8 has never been easier. I never-ever thought I could do it and here I am. By 8:30 this morning I had made tea and washed half the dishes in the sink. Now it’s almost 10:30 and though I’m still in my pyjamas I finished washing the dishes, had my tea, read 450 items from my reader and had a my morning talk with Martha. I guess the secret of having to get up early and actually doing it lies in the fact that Martha does it to. I would never have done it by myself, but having someone to do it with makes it a lot easier. I wake up, knock on her door, say “good morning”, go into the kitchen, put the kettle on the stove and then we can start our day. I’ve never spent so much time in the kitchen, but I love it :) The cups of tea we drink/day are countless, the meals we cook are great, the bread we bake is delicious, I just wish this never ends :)

I’ve started wearing dresses and skirts and I totally love it :) I don’t have many, but I’m working on it. Also, yesterday I saw the most beautiful pair of orange shoes. Not skates shoes, just shoes. The fancy ones. They were adorable. And expensive. Maybe that’s why I don’t buy that kind of fancy shoes – too expensive for how little I wear them. Anyways, if I ever win the lottery, I will buy them. That’s a promise!

And yesterday (ah, the wonderful day that was yesterday) I got a chance to see and hear mister Salman Rushdie in person. We had top seats (sometimes you just have to know whom to chocolate-bribe ;)) ) and it was one of the greatest literary evening ever! The guy is simply awesome – witty, talkative, and has a to-die-for British accent. So glad I was there!

So yeah, sometimes everything is just right, even when you have to wait for 2h to see your far-away friend for 40 minutes in the airport :)

    @ Gracie: yes, they are! :)

    @ tuvia: I always get sleepy around 2-3 in the afternoon, but then I have to go to classes and I forget all about it :)
