My eyes were groggily starting to open; I could start to make out the room around me. I pulled my arm out from beneath the covers of my blankets and shivered. It was going to be a cold day. I quickly withdrew my hand from the icy air outside and lay down in my cosy bed trying to get the strength to pull myself out of bed. The time was 7:18 AM and I was finally ready to pull myself out from beneath the doona as the door slammed and I knew that my brother and sister had left for school.
