It’s been an enjoyable week for me, back on breakfast radio whilst my colleague and fellow News columnist Steve Power takes a well-earned rest.
Now, I’m sure there are many other people who have to get up for work at 4am.
But how many of those have to be bright, cheery and creative from 5.30am?
Of course, one of the perks is finishing early. The show ends at 9am and as soon as I’ve sorted out all my correspondence and prepared items for the following day, it’s home I go.
Sadly for me, as soon as I switch on the telly with a cup of tea I tend to fall asleep.
I’m clearly out of practice. On Tuesday I woke at 6pm in the dark and thought I’d overslept!
