Good week? I hope so…. and it’s a long weekend too. Result!
Nightowl or earlybird?
Rachel said something in passing the other day about early starts and that kicked my subconscious. Are you an earlybird? Tucked up in bed before the late news and jumping out of bed at the dawn chorus? Or, maybe a nightowl? Is your brain at it’s best around 11pm and you’re happy until the small hours (provided you get a lie-in the next day).
Personally, I’m a night person. No, not creature of the night (Ed: T-t-t-t-t-touch me!! I wanna be dirty) – just a night bird. I find it easier to stay up than get up early. It’s always been like this. My brain seems to switch on in the late evening and, if I’ve managed a lie-in, I’m normally good to go until the small hours. It seems all the things that I’d like to do (read, watch TV, blog or research on t’interweb) mean that I’m up until late. Not so good on a school night, but good for conferences or days with late meetings 🙂
A friend once joked to me if from an evolutionary point of view, nightowls and earlybirds where a useful thing to have around. While one group are kipped out in the cave, the other half are up and awake, keeping an eye on the place. It sounded very plausible, but then we had had a couple of glasses of falling down water.
So which one are you? Or, are you neither? Perhaps you’re the modern-day Rip Van Winkle or like the Iron Lady. Apparently she got by on 3 hours kip (after bathing in virgin’s blood?).
