Are you a night owl or an early bird? I am so an early bird as is my hubby although he is a bit of a night owl sometimes especially if he falls asleep whilst watching TV in an evening . Andrew my son is a night owl mainly from habit of playing on line star trek over the last couple of years which was fine most of the time when he was at college only 2 days a week( and that was classed full time) but as he starts his job next week we have been trying to get him into the habit of early mornings.The problem he finds is that many of his online friends who he chats with over the headsets and I often think they are having a party.
Anyway whilst pootling around blog-land I found Gingers house via another blog and found all these wonderful sayings and when I saw this one I just knew it would be perfect as a reminder/ annoyance for my son when he is online in the late evening and early night.
I decided I would make a picture which developed into something I could sit on top of the TV my son doubles as his computer monitor so came up with a card board frame the sat around the top of the screen and balanced there so it would always be visible and a prompt not to stay up too late so the morning is hard to get up.
He has already agreed that on work nights and Sunday evening his cut off will be 10 pm so at least he has the chance of getting a good nights sleep so is able to get up when required to be out of the house by 7 for his lift to work from hubby but this should act as a reminder to help along the way hopefully anyway. It seems to be working so far thought I didn't tell him what I had done so when I went upstairs and asked if he had seen it I got a 'mum why?' and found he had taken it off the TV, not too happy to start with but the heat from the TV loosened the tape I used to secure the picture to the support and my son actually asked if I could put it back together so I think he secretly likes his little nudge to finish trekking across the universe at a reasonable hour.
