Oh, where to start…
I am a girl who lives by routine. Primarily because I have become so forgetful in my old age I need routine to get me through the day. This is not to say, however, that my reliance on internal autopilot is completely without flaw.
Case in point: When I arrive home, I must leave my car parked on the road in order to open a 5-bar gate and get my crazy dog to SIT/STAY on the doorstep so I don’t run over him when I back into the driveway. I have completed this routine so very many times I no longer think about the various steps of said routine. Until one step is omitted…
If you have ever wondered how I manage to get such great shots of the sunrise and sunset, this is the precise reason: My house is perched on the top of a hill, and the lane carrying on down to the hamlet of Marlow Bottom is about a half mile of steep grade, ending in a right angle.
After putting my dog in SIT/STAY on the doorstep, I discovered my car was no longer parked outside my open gate…

PS: Fortunately, my beloved Nissan X-Trail made its way deep into a hedge and stopped herself before hitting the steepest bit of the hill. No damage done, save my pride, and thankfully there was no one coming up the hill! Now THAT would have been a FREAKIN’ GREEK TRAGEDY!
