who still gets them?
I dunno 'bout you lot but as I have got older I cannot seem to get a decent lie in these days. At very best I get up before 8am. This contrasts to a 16 year old who could just be a lump in a bed until mid-day.
Am I alone in losing the capacity to lie in?
Lie in? No chance
I lost the ability when I had a kid I think. I can't stay in bed past 9 now
Dodgy thyroid = all the lie ins I desire. I coulsd sleep for Britain even when I'm on the right medication. On the couple of occasions when I've been off the drugs, I was sleeping for up to 18 hours a day.
I sometimes sleep in at weekends, but I'm usually awake by 9 o'clock. Usually earlier.
But that's still a good lie in compared to my usual weekday time of 6 o'clock
Stayed in bed till half nine.
About as rare an occurance as the Queen popping down to Aldi in her slippers for a stollen.

i dream about a lie in till 9am.
2 kids have put an end to that.
Never been good at doing a lie in, even in my teens. I find it too much of a waste to spend most of the morning in bed. And once I'm awake I can't get back to sleep.
With running in the mornings, my body clock changed & 10pm was considered a late night.
Now into the second week of having a new puppy who ensures that we're up at 6am everyday.
I hope to have one soon when I move! I've been staying with a friend for a few months and it's a bliddy noisy household. Her kids are up at 7 every morning chasing around the house, although the boiler by my room kicks into action at 6 and wakes me up anyway. Her cats scratch and yowl outside my door in the middle of the night. If she's away, I have to get up at 7.30am to let the hens out, so I don't even get a lie-in then. My room's by the kitchen which is the hub, so I can't sleep until the last person's gone to bed as the kitchen door makes the stud wall of my room judder loudly and wakes me up if I've fallen asleep. On top of this, I am tri training, so I am knackered!
I'm not a lie-in sort of person but would love the opportunity to have a 9 o'clocker every now and then.
I rise at 5:30a.m.and have done for many years No I am not a farmer!
Used to lie in until I had something serious to get up for studies, girlfriends, work....Does not matter any more at 5:30 my eyes open even on holidays. If I do not rise I have a headache for the rest of the day.
i consider it a lie in if im still there at 8am. i too can remember being able to sleep until midday at weekends as a teenager. unfortunately a 7 year old prising open my eyelids has put pay to that!!
bonus is though that i like early morning runs and i feel thst ive wasted my freetime if i stay in bed so getting up early has its benefits
