Very early this morning, I'm half asleep. I say half asleep because I probably need a pee but I'm in denial - a situation not helped by the rain lashing down outside.
Then an alarm goes off - and its not good. It feels way too early to get up and this means my day ahead is going to be unproductive.
But its not an alarm - but a phone. Nikki's phone is ringing and being so early, she grabs for it with a start.
It's 5am. Who calls at 5am?
Er, our eldest son does. He is calling because he has just landed in Singapore where its a beautiful day and he wants to share the view from his hotel with us.
Won't it be the same view 5 hours later?
"Oh, sorry. I forgot about the time difference. My bad".
On the Jimmy Kimmel Show, when he said "I am no genius..." he really meant it...
