My husband will never go to bed himself unless he's not well but I treasure the hour on a morning before I wake him , it is me time and I get upset if he wakes up early, it sounds selfish but I need that time to prepare myself for the day especially if he has had me up a lot during the night,
my wife has lewy body alz/ she go to care center in the moring / i then pick her up around 1.30 pm .look after her till 5 to 5 3o am. She then wants to go to bed .sleeps till 7 30 am .the next day .am i the only one who looks forward to a partner retireing early around 8.30. I feel its the only time i get a little peace and time to myself.

my partner goes to bed about 11.00 in morning for hour or so and i love that hour which is strange as when he is not in bed he does nothing but crosswords but i think it is that i do not have to watch him do nothing which drives me mental or answer the same question again!!!!!!
You are definitely not alone in wanting to grab a little time to yourself l am full time carer for my dad and look forward to a few hours at the end of the day to recharge my batteries.. A glass of wine helps too
Hi 5 and 2,my husband wants to go to bed about 7-00pm but i know if he does,he,ll be up about 3 in the morning. i try and keep him up till ten even then he wont go without me and gets irritable,so i go with him and have an hour on my kindle (flipping candy crush addictive),that is my downtime love it for now.
