My Second Guilty Pleasure


I Do Like a Lie in!

I really do love not having to get up for work now. I always used to love a lie in when I was young and my Mam bless her used to let us lie in until lunch time if we’d been out to a dance the night before.

I’m just not an early to bed person, I’m rarely in bed before midnight and I’ve never been a morning person. I always found it hard to get up when the alarm went off, and I used to turn over for an extra few minutes. I used to leave the alarm on at weekends just for the pleasure of turning over and switching it off. I’m not bad tempered or anything I just function better afternoons and evenings.

Guess what? My husband is the opposite, he gets up anytime after 5.30 am. It’s such a pain!

Some mornings I’m still up early to take the kiddoes to school and nursery but others I have a lovely lie in, It's especially nice if the weather is bad, I just snuggle back under the duvet.

I’m making the most of it because once my husband retires, I doubt if I’ll get to lie in for very long.
