What time will I wake up?

For only the third time in nearly 20 years I am alone overnight in my home. Many times minus DH on business trips but children in house. The last two times home alone I had to go to work the next day but not this time. I have cancelled my two morning alarms and the cats are shut off from the bedroom area of the house.

What do you think my ‘natural’ uninterrupted waking time will be?

I’ll be sooo annoyed if I wake up at 6am fresh as a daisy given I’ve been waiting two decades for this day.

Personally I'd still be awake at 7ish, I can only sleep in when I'm ill or really hungover. My body is pretty clockwork.

But even if you're awake doesn't mean you have to get up! Lounge as long as possible smile

30 minutes before you would normally wake up. speaks from bitter experience

You'll either wake up at your normal wake up time or at about three in the afternoon feeling dehydrated and like a bomb may have gone off in your head.

Have you got water by the bed? I reckon you will probably wake around 7ish, but then if you have nice long drink - and quick pee if necessary - go back to bed and you'll nap till 10. Or at least this is what I'd do!

6AM on the dot.

Last night I was in a similar scenario and I woke up at 6am on the nose this morning. Sorry!

On the upside I fed the cat, made a tea, went back to bed and managed to get an extra hour 7.30-8.30, so all is not lost!

You will wake up at 6.47 then go back to sleep until 9.32.

If I wake up early I find getting a cup of tea and bringing it back to bed and mumsnetting for an hour is really relaxing.... so relaxing that I tend to nod off again for another hour! Bliss!

I was in exactly the same situation last night (and again tonight) and am delighted to say I woke at 9am feeling more refreshed than I have in ages. Hope you have a restful night's sleep OP.

I could win a gold for sleeping if it was an Olympic sport (it should be)
In your situation I would stay up too late and sleep until at least midday and then be unable to sleep the following night. You would think I’d have learned by now but no

About 2 mins before your usual alarm time.

4:45 damn!
Will attempt to go back to sleep despite head buzzing with things I want to do.

How did you manage, gosh, did you get back to sleep?
