I just want a Lie in!
I was riding a goldfish, searching for an elusive treasure, sure I would find it on the next dive when my dream began to melt away. Back in bed wide awake, I knew that it was sleep that I would have to find now. The goldfish swam away and would have to search alone. I had been rudely dismounted by the noise of a chainsaw.
I gave up, so was up early once more, on a Saturday morning. My neighbour’s attempts the day before to squeeze a 30 ft palm into a 6 ft skip had failed and he was back this morning with grit, 300 teeth and a can of petrol. I got up, made a coffee, put some washing on and took the rubbish out, and found in the process, a plastic dial I had discovered abandoned on the floor of my daughters’ car. The spindle had broken, I had brought it in to fix it some weeks ago. Coffee made, paper down, super glue out, I would make use of the Saturday void, nobody else wanted to start the day just yet.
