I know i'm wingeing about nothing but i'm fed up of this now.

DP is 33 years old and works nights.

Why is it when his alarm goes off he turns it off and goes back to sleep? I then have to go upstairs to wake him up. I'm comfy on my chair MNing. I don't want to have to walk all the way up them stairs!!

he'll have to get a louder alarm or be late for work

Seriously though. I used to be able to get up for work when my alarm went off.

Then don't - tell him first, but the reason he doesn't get up maight be because his dp is his snooze button.

Effie - If I don't wake him up he'll be late and we need the money.

A louder alarm will wake DD up.

I tell you what though when she moves into her own room that'll be it!! LMAO

I've just had a thought. Sneak into the room when he's asleep, and move the clock forward 2 or 3 hours. Then go in and say "I told you to stop turning your alarm off, it's Xo'clock. Serves you right." and walk out again. grin

Hecate - You are positively evil!! grin I LOVE it!!

Glad to be of service grin So are you going to do it?
(do it do it do it do it do it - and let me know what happens.)

I'll do it on a day where he's gone to bed early so I don't upset his sleep. He has trouble getting back to sleep for some reason (obvioulsy unless his alarm has gone off grumble grumble)

I'll wait till he goes to bed early expecting to get up at 6pm then i'll knock it forward.
