Usually, I wake up to the sound of chainsaws. To explain, this is the countryside and pretty much everything is overgrown. We all live in the shadow of leylandii and giant hills and – well, the leylandii respond better to trimming.

Of course, there are days when I wake up to birdsong but usually it’s a sawing sound.
Great fun today though because I woke up to the sound of Bruno Mars. There was a retirement party next door, with multicoloured fairy lights and a DJ and honestly, if you’ve never woken up to Uptown Funk, I really recommend it.
