Like Mary Mar 25, 2011

I am a little like Mary....I rather work early in the morning instead of late at night. I find that I am more productive if I go to bed and sleep well and wake up early in the morning.

Yes Mar 25, 2011

I do work after midnight for about an hour quite often, but I usually don't have to get up early in the morning.

Sometimes Mar 25, 2011

I prefer to work late at the night than early in the morning.
I am not able to jump of bed early in the morning. No way. In spring especially!

early morning Mar 25, 2011

If I have a job to finish and I'm behind schedule I force myself out of bed at 5.30-ish. Hate doing it, and luckily I only resort to this a couple of times a month. After midnight is out of the question. Actually, after dinner is out of the question for me. Dinner and after-dinner relaxation is sacrosanct!

Not any more Mar 25, 2011

I used to do it in exceptional circumstances, but these days I generally get woken before 6 a.m. by the children and I just couldn't cope without enough sleep. I work to 11:30 p.m. at the latest (and even then, only in exceptional circumstances) and then I have to go to bed.

No unless... Mar 25, 2011

unless you consider 5 am after midnight.

Seriously, I usually wake up at 520 am, and start working at 530 because:

- everybody is sleeping, so it's quiet
- I am reactive
- I can stop earlier in the evening (well I could, it never happens!!!)
- I can have some breaks in the afternoon and drive my son to the gym or the readings
