Alarm clocks? I remember them

Have your say

Are you a morning person or an evening person? By that I mean do you prefer to be awake at the crack of dawn or are you a night owl?

Recently I read that women prefer an early rise and men prefer to be awake long past News at Ten. This is true in my house.

I’ve never been a morning person and would always prefer to have a late night and wake up naturally when my body thinks it’s the right time.

However, my partner Serena would rather wake up early and go to sleep early.

Of course, this was the situation before we both became parents because when you are in charge of little humans, you have to be a morning and an evening person.

Sometimes my daughters will go to bed early, but then they might wake up in the middle of the night.

Even during the summer holidays, letting them stay up a bit later doesn’t guarantee they’ll have a lie-in the next morning.

There is one positive though...

I no longer need to set an alarm.
