I was reading a couple things, and realised that I may be taking a few things too far.

To me a lie-in in the morning means getting up at the crack of noon ie 12.   Am I wrong in thinking this is a good thing ?
Amazes me when people talk about a lie in they mean 8-9 in the morning,

Maybe I should re-think my "Lie-in" status, and get up earlier.  When I told my work collegues they thought I was a bit lazy on my days off.

What are people's opinions of this ?

I think it's good to define your own lie in status in life as it's up to you how long you lie in, my definition is close to yours really. You're no more *lazy* on your day off than this woman, you just enjoy your awake hours at different times.

I mis read your entry, I meant no more lazy than people at work. I don't know where I got woman from, maybe cos I have a perception some women more likely to bitch about silly things like that over men lol.

A lie-in for me can be anything up to midday-ish...

I'd define it as getting up at a time that's at least an hour later than you normally have to.

Hello New friend :o)

My son Oliver generally wakes up somewhere between half six and half seven every single morning, so to me, 8am is a lie-in! (don't you feel sorry for me?)
Before Oliver was born a lie-in was more like 10/11 for me.
Those were the days :o)

Hi Lisa,

Aww on having to get up real early each day :( When I work days, I have to get up by half five to get ready for work and travel there.

I do find if I have something to do that day, I get up early but usually on my days off I do not have anything planned.

Hi Darren,

I really wouldn't fancy your job, how long does it take you to get to work?
At least while Im up early, I don't have actually have to go anywhere, I can stay in my jammies and drink coffee until I wake up properly.
I suddenly no longer mind my lack of lie-ins so much ;o)

I work shifts, for example I have 5 day shifts from 7am to 7pm from tomorrow, so that's enjoying the weekend out the window. After that I have 2 days off then 4 night shifts hours are 7pm to 7am.

Its a very horrible shift pattern, but pays OK for Maidstone. Should look for a nice *normal* weekday job to be honest.

So for days I get up at 05:30am and nights its 05:30pm.

Ahh, is that computer stuff?

Yes, lots and lots of computers.

Some contracts I can tell you that we do, Teachers pensions, and some local council things.
