About 11pm, still find I need at least 8-9 hrs sleep, but lucky if I get it...

I dont know about you guys but I am definitely a sleeper in the winter and a early moring bird in the summer. Somehow running is just so much more attractive when you dont have to layer up and brave the elements! 

I have just started running to work in London and so I am grabbing about 6 hours sleep at the moment...when the Brixton police dont raid the hostel next to my flar or there arent any riots going on....

Given the choice I'd sleep from 1 til 9. It used to be more like 3 til 11 so has shifted earlier but is still the same amount of sleep.

as I generally can't get up at 9 I try to aim for midnight in bed during the week.

My sleeping skills are enviable  

10 hours is the norm for me ...

Before midnight is early. Midnight to 1am is bedtime. After 1am is late. Weekdays I get up at about 6.15 and leave the house at 6.45. Weekends I still go to bed at same times but can lie-in for England. I am older than Tommygun but younger than MrFrog (who doesn't understand my sleep patterns at all!).

Bedtime usually about 1.45am during the week, and get up sometime between 7.00 and 8.30am - I mostly work from home, so can roll out of bed and be straight in the 'office'.

3 to 4am isn't unusual at the weekends.

But I can get by for a few days on very little, or very erratic sleep... I've often worked through the night to meet work deadlines, and functioned quite happily the next day (it tends to catch up with me a couple of days later).

I struggle past 10pm, if I am sitting in front of the TV. I am up at 4.45 every morning and unfortunately the body clock opens my eyes at the same time at weekends.

What I wouldn't give to sleep in.

I usually go to bed around 9:30 and put the tv for half an hour but ususlly asleep around 10 - i wake up between 5 and 6 - it's just what i'm used to.

I work from home too Julie but don't you find just 'arrving at the office' needs some time between waking and working? My missus has been shocked sometimes to get home and find me still in my pyjamas but very pleased with the productive day I've had!

also I find I work better lately by getting bed by 11 ish and up at 7.

that's if I am not woken by snoring several times and have to relocate to another room

depends who I'm sharing it with

Bedtime is 10pm. Lights out by 10.30 at absolute latest. I really like to get 8hrs sleep if I can and get bit antsy if I'm not getting that regularly.

It depends on what I'm doing the next day and what time I need to be up, but if entirely left to my own devices then it would probably be 11pm - midnight, and up around 8am.

Very rarely before midnight...but very rarely after midnight...MrGFB up at 7.00am and I get up at 7.55 (to be exact!!)  He likes time to chill in the morning...I like our bed

And I also would love to lie in at the weekends but find myself waking around the same time...we'll be up early this weekend as we have the grand-babies for a sleepover and they tend to wake around 6ish

The older I've gotten, the more sleep I need. The problem is not staying up late but the getting up the next morning. I would be happiest if I could wake up about 8am but have to be work half an hour before that so doesn't really work. I try to go to bed between 10-10.30pm but sometimes it's between 11-11.30pm for no good reason.

10ish is when I start heading for bed.  Usually takes me half an hour to faff around/read/chat to hubby but we tend to be asleep for 10:30.  Up at 6 and I definitely need sleep!

I tend to spend a reasonable number of hours in bed, but can often only sleep a couple of them.  It doesn't bother me as I use the extra time to process things in my head and usually wake up with all sorts of problems resolved.

Not enough hours to resolve all conflicts and achieve world peace though

Sleep?  Wassat then?

Kids bedtime is 8 - but by the time they've had stories, books and songs and get off to sleep it's usually after 9.  Then we eat, tidy up, catch the news or watch something recorded for half an hour, get clothes etc ready for the next day, have a wash etc, it's usually 11:30 before we get to bed.  Read for a bit then lights out.

Hubby snores for half an hour as he drops off.  Then I take another half an hour or so to get off to sleep.  Sometimes I read a bit more to stop me clubbing him.

Little 'un wakes any time between 2 and 4, and I've given up trying to settle her in her cot, so she comes in with us (I know, I know......) and she cuddles very enthusiastically while she falls asleep again - another half an hour. 

Alarm goes off at 6:20 - hubby snoozes it a couple of times and goes back to sleep - but I'm awake.  He gets up for first shower and I try (usually unsuccessfully) to get another half hour.  At about 7:15 older daughter shouts through "Is it morning?" waking little 'un so it's time to get up for breakfast.

At least now we are past mid-summer, and it'll start getting darker earlier and light later.  Up here, it's still light at midnight and the dawn chorus starts about 3am.

I long for 8 hours in bed, alone, with no daylight...............
