The morning exodus

Where we live in Spain, most of the people are retired. Getting up in the morning is something you do when you are ready. Apart from those occasions when we have an appointment, there is no call to use an alarm clock to wake us up.

Here in Sale, most of the neighbours go to work so, from about 8am to 9, there is the exodus as people leave their houses to go to work. Cars starting up and doors closing have the same effect as an alarm clock so here I am up and awake.

Normally, I get a good two hours to myself before Mrs W. wakes up but not this morning. She too has woken up with the noise and now wants me to get started on the jobs so that we can go out to Manchester shopping.
