Sleep


It's such a good feeling to be able to turn off the alarm when we get to the holidays! I am NOT a morning person....


I'm much more of a night owl type really, and tend to get a bit of a second wind in the evening. No matter how tired I am, I don't find it easy to go to bed!! I like to stay up reading, or blog hopping, or watching TV. And however hard it might be to go to bed, it's even harder to then get up the following morning, *yawn*...


In term-time I don't have much choice. Even if I'm not working myself, I need to get The Children to school. It means that I do have to try to be more sensible at turning in before it gets too late. But when the holidays come and I can turn the alarm off, I can stay up a bit later and stay in bed a bit longer the next morning, and follow my natural sleep patterns more than usual. And it's lovely to be able to do that :-)

I still seem to be waking up at my normal time - grrrr!!!!
I'll just be adjusting my internal wake up call by the time it's back to school.
Hope you are enjoying your well deserved time off!

I'm definitely a morning girl, but I do love not having to go anywhere in the morning.

Ah, yes...sleep. It's been good to get caught up the past few days. This morning I can say that I'm starting to feel like my old self.

Lovely page! I'm still dithering on mine since I have insomnia all year long & am not sure how I want to address this.

Wish I could sleep in but for me alarm or no alarm I invariably wake at 6ish can sometime turn over and go back to sleep for another couple of hours but 8 is the latest I would be able to do that for.

I think I am both a lark and an owl don't know which bird sleeps in the middle of the day though.

I've enjoyed having the alarm turned off this week as well. It's great!
