Cloud ceiling

      Half asleep, bleary-eyed and bouncing off the walls I'm trying to get the kettle on and the Jack Russells out of the back door for their early morning pee. When the back door is opened I'm greeted by dawn with an absolute treat of a sky and very definite cloud ceiling.
      The sun had just clawed its way over the horizon and was a red ball behind the hedge giving the clouds this lovely orange glow. There is no doubt that this splendid sight cheers you up and sets you up for the day.
      Five minutes later the spectacle has gone but the tea, toast and marmalade taste good. Having been forced out of the door for a pee the terriers now want a long walk.
      You'll just have to wait, another cup of tea is called for.
