    It's my normal, I'm like an old cat or dog I eat and sleep when I feel the need to eat and sleep.

    In total, I sleep about nine hours a day, usually one long sleep and a couple of shorter naps.

    I enjoy my routine and it doesn't hurt anybody so how bad can it be.


    I don't need someone, some 'authority' telling me what is best for me


    I work whenever I want









    I eat whenever I want



    I relax whenever I want



    I sleep whenever I want



    And I’m right on schedule

    It’s called retirement

    …and

    …I

    .....love it!

    I work full-time so an afternoon nap is out of the question. I get to bed around 10 and read till I fall asleep, usually around 10.30. I very seldom have trouble falling asleep. A good night is when I sleep the night through and don't wake till around 5.30 or 6, my getting up time no matter what day it is or how little I've slept. Once I'm awake around that time it's impossible to get back to sleep again.

    A not so good night is where I'll fall asleep easily like always, and then wake up 3 hours later and toss and turn trying to get back to sleep. Sometimes I have to pee, sometimes I just wake for no particular reason and as soon as I'm aware of being awake, I can tell immediately whether or not it's going to be one of THOSE times. I'll get up and go to the bathroom, because even if I know it's going to be a while before I can get back to sleep the LAST thing I want is to be finally drifting off, but then have the urge hit!!

    I average about 7 hours of sleep a night. If I'm going out in the evening after work (usually at least twice a week, once to my Naranon meeting and once to dance) I'll try and lie down for half an hour before I have to get ready and leave, sometimes to doze, other times just to rest. Very occasionally on the weekend I might doze for 20 minutes in the afternoon, but usually not. If I've had a rough night or I'm extra tired, I'll usually just compensate by going to bed earlier.
    Everything is always OK in the end. If it's not, then it's not the end!

    I fall asleep in about 1-2 minutes. I can feel myself getting real tired so I merely shut it all down and go to sleep. I have a white noise machine that I am convinced keeps me from waking up In the middle of the night. I sleep on the average of 6-8 hours.

    I use an electric fan for white noise it helps to block out the sounds of the city.
