I've never really been a night owl, always preferring my pillow to late night TV or net surfing. Don't get me wrong, when I'm out and about I can party with the best of them and I've seen the sun rise on too many occasions, but if I'm home I can't think of anything worse than being awake to the early hours.
Once kids arrived my bedtime got earlier, it wasn't uncommon that I'd fall asleep shortly after they did. Well, they did wake all through the night and were up at the crack o'dawn, you've got to sleep when you can.
These days they're sleeping better and yet I still go to sleep at the same time as an average primary schooler. I try to stay awake longer and after the kids go to bed I'm feeling wide awake. Then as soon as I switch on the telly or pick up a book I feel my lids go heavy and I'm off...... zzzzzzzzzz.
I wonder if I'll ever see double digits on the clock again?
Are you a night owl? Or do you prefer to be tucked up early?
