5.Croissants, and fresh, real coffee. Or muesli, if it is an ordinary day. (I tend to reserve "Full English Breakfasts" for lunch or High Tea).
6.Looking at the weather - a Very British Thing. Other countries don't have Weather - it is the same every day of the season.
7.The moon, pale, looking transparent in a pale blue morning sky (I know it isn't - how can anything made of cheese be transparent)
8.The way the colours in the sky change - from inky blue to gold to pale. How colours slowly appear in the view.
9.Golden light creeping into the room
10.Saying "Good morning" to people, with affection and good intent.
