It’s good to be at work for another day….no seriously it is.  I’ve been doing radio now for over 30 years but I still get a buzz out of it.

My alarm goes off at 2.45 around at home and people sometimes ask me how many alarms I have.

I have just one. I set an alarm on my phone and I just rely on it.image

Now…..yesterday morning for some reason I got up 6 or 7 minutes before the alarm and one of the first things I did was to turn the alarm off…I cancelled it so it didn’t start going off while I was in the shower.

The key was, I had to remember to turn it back on…and I didn’t.

So this morning after what’s been a big week so far…..late night for me last night because it would have been after 10 before I got to bed. I know, I know, I know, ten o’clock doesn’t sound like a late night, but you think about a 2.45 alarm and you do the sums.

imageAnyway…..you would think that without an alarm I would sleep till 7 in the morning. When do you think I woke up ?

Ten to 3. 2.50am….I sat bolt upright in bed and picked up my phone to check the time, because the clock inside my head knew that my alarm hadn’t gone off. How freaky is that ? That’s crazy.

I could just about do without the alarm.  I’ve got this crazy body clock that, even in a deep sleep will shake me into consciousness at the right time.

So, do I sleep in on the weekend ?

Well it depends on how you look at it.  I tend to wake on Saturday and Sunday mornings at around 6am. I see that as wildly decadent sleep in. Not everybody agrees with me.
