Wakey Wakey!

This is our alarm clock. It’s probably about 15 years old or more, but still going strong.

The good thing about it, is that it has two alarms: one for me and one for the current Mrs Masher.

The first alarm is mine and goes off at 5am, with a very annoying Beep Beep, Beep Beep… If I’m not awake before it goes off – which I usually am – then I tend to wake as soon as that first Beep Beep, goes off. No snoozing: straight up and out of bed.

Because I’m annoying like that.

The second alarm is for Mrs M. It’s the local radio station and it’s pretty loud. She will sleep through the first five minutes of it and then doze for another five before finally dragging herself out of bed.

Unbelievably though, I’ve known her to sleep right through it before now.

    Interesting. I haven’t seen a digital alarm clock for yonks. I must have owned loads and yet I can’t remember throwing any out

      Digital is the next big thing, Bren.

    A very good choice you made for the radio alarm. We have the same one on our dressing table and like you was bought many years ago, probably nearer 20.
    Our one does not get much use these days as an alarm but the radio still has regular use.

      Thinking about it, 20 years is probably nearer the mark.

    You are a collector of vintage art, I see. She probably needs more sleep because some numpty woke her up at 5 AM! 😉

      Where is the “LIKE” button. 😀

        You’re getting confused again, Alan: this is masher.tv, not Faceache.

      Vintage? Classic? I dunno. But it still works so I ain’t changing it.
