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 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
