A day off work for me often leads to a luxurious lie-in, but not today! Today was the rare occurrence of a solar eclipse, certainly worth getting up for!
At twenty past eight this morning, getting up early did feel like a daft decision to make, thick cloud cover blocked any sign of the sun and the up-coming display. Fortunately, the clouds thinned a little, and the show was on the road!
As the moon began to creep across the face of the sun, I noticed how grey the light became, I felt a growing chill creep through the air, and I saw the birds grow restful.
With the sun regaining its daytime dominance, I saw the golden rays of morning hit the world for a second time that day, the air grew warm, and the birds began to sing.
What a glorious event to witness!
