Rise and Shine
Seeing as I organized the whole event, I was personally responsible for the clean-up and any damages done to the property during the birthday celebration. Even though I left the party early, I had people watching over things for me. I learnt delegation the hard way a long time ago. I came back to the mansion very late into the night. I entered after all the guests have left and most of the cleaners and servers were done with the tasks assigned to them. Even though I got in very late and very tired, I still painfully went through the task of making sure nothing was taken and everything was in order. Everything was exactly as my mother wanted. It was only after I had double checked everything that I turned off the lights to the whole house and willed myself to sleep.
I woke up before anyone else in the house as was my nature; I have always been a very light sleeper. Once day breaks, I am up. I spent the first few hours of the morning going through my to-do list once more to ensure that everything was intact and no mistakes or oversight was made the night before. When I was satisfied, I went to have my bath and change into a clean and comfortable track suit.
As part of my morning ritual, I took Calmstorm, my dog, out for a morning run to feel the early morning breeze and enjoy the calmness and solitude of the early hours of the day.
