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.

  1. This isn’t another thinly veiled “I want to get pregnant” post, is it?

    I am a night owl and Mrs 6000 is more of a morning person.

    We have 2 kids. So our hours are defined by them, It all works. Mostly.

  2. I’m a mornin person. But if i wake up early and then put my head bak down i become a midday riser. I most of the time fall asleep in front of the tv and stuf as i also need2sleep by 9ish. I do get moaned at every now and again.its a neverending battle.

  3. 6000 – it is about the training…

    SA – I am pretty much the same, although not till midday. I usually get up when I wake up though.

I would love to hear from you
