There are quite a few benefits to being a nocturnal type, tonight it is that now, at 2.09am all the fireworks have stopped exploding and it is quiet once more. Bonfire night was yesterday of course, but that was a Thursday, weekends are much better, I expect just as many tomorrow evening and a few random bangs into next week. I don't mind them but the animals get a bit freaked out and that's never good!
I'm not an insomniac - just nocturnal. For as long as I can remember I have been a night person, awake through the night as a child, always did my homework at night. Ideally I would go to sleep (and sleep well) at around 4-5am and get up at 11ish, but life gets in the way of that sometimes. Now that I am self-employed though I can indulge my natural circadian rhythm more - I also get to chat to friends in Australia with no problems at all!
So that's what this blog will be for me - somewhere to put my mid-night ramblings down during work breaks or whenever the fit takes me. If anyone reads this they may think it odd...or may totally relate and think 'Hey, I'm nocturnal too!'
