I don't know why but it's the last ten minutes before the alarm goes off that is the best sleep.
During the working week, I get up every morning at six o'clock. I don't have to; I want to. I've always been a good morning person; I find it hard to stay up really late. The thing is, now that I've been doing it for so long, I automatically wake up before the alarm. Sometimes just before; mostly an hour or so before.
Which isn't too bad. But, even when I know I have that hour still to sleep, I find I'm only twilight sleeping. Just waiting for the alarm to ring.
Except ten minutes before it goes off. For some reason - that I'm sure has a perfectly valid medical name - I find myself going into deep sleep JUST BEFORE the alarm rings. Not when I'm already mostly awake. No, my body rebels and decides I need to be asleep before the alarm rings. Bastard.
Of course, I could just get up when I wake naturally but, then what would I blog about?
