    What's for breakfast on the walking days?

    Perhaps not, but then on these occasions I am woken by 1 or 2 kids wanting to engage me in some form of topical debate. This I accept is my own fault.

    Certainly would not be sleeping beyond 7 no matter. Not a hope.

    My alarm goes at 6am Mon-Fri and on Saturday morning with no alarm I wake at the same time. It's all I can do to lay in to 7am.

    Plus, the kitchen on your own early in the morning is a wonderful thing. Cup of tea, Charlie Parker, a fire if it's a tad chilly, the morning papers, perhaps a Madeleine or two to nibble on, hopefully the patter of rain on the glass roof to make you feel safe and cosey...

    Bálls to all that. A nice sub-23 minute 5k to get the blood pumping, that's what to do at 6 a.m. at the weekend.

    I can associate with this apart from the tea bit, and Charlie Parker as I don't know who he is, I would have to nip out for papers which is not ideal and I am more a malted milk man than a Madeleine.

    "Plenty of strikers can score goals," he said, gesturing to the famous old stands casting shadows around us.

    Miles Davis, John Coltrane, bit of Acid Jazz.

    That is my limits in this respect.

    I may investigate Parker.

    Any man that cannot appreciate this is not a proper man imo.

    Depends entirely on how rapidly v gets herself sorted. If she takes too long in the bathroom and time is running short, a slice of toast and a yoghurt. If she's on top of things, eggs and bacon.

    I also prepare 2 flasks of tea and a hipflask of brandy.
