I use to think Christmas Day was the best day for getting up early but I've discovered getting up early on New Years Day is even better. It's so quiet. I'm in the middle of Birmingham and I haven't heard a single vehicle. I shall spoil all this in a minute as I get in my car and drive to court.
All I have heard has been the humming of my computer, water flowing in my bathroom and a crow. Even the other birds are silent.
I wish it could be this quiet every morning. I suppose another resolution is to get up earlier in the morning. That would be involve going to bed earlier but maybe that's not such a bad thing.
