Get me coffee!

I am a morning person, irritating to some, I know!  But that is just the way I am.  My whole family are morning people.  We get up early especially on weekends and do stuff.  Or hope to do stuff.  We go for a run, cycle or play golf (in my brother’s case).  We don’t need 5 cups of strong caffeine based beverage to wake up, although I won’t turn one down.

 

The problem is when your partner is not a morning person!  How do you get your clocks to be in sync?  It is very difficult when you are up at 6 and wide awake and raring to go when your partner wants to sleep in till midday.  It is also a problem at night, because come 9:30 I want to be in bed, tuck up and fast asleep. 

 

So now the question?  Is being a morning person psychological or do some people really just work on different times.  Is it not more of a fact that you want to sleep late because you are always up past midnight or conversely you can get up early because you have already had your 8 hours and are feeling refreshed.  Although I must admit I can’t really sleep late even if I was up past midnight.

 

So how many of you are morning people and do your partners run on the same clock.  And if not how do you cope.
