Everybody likes a lie-in until it ruins the day.
Dragging ourselves out of bed five minutes before work is an easy way to mess up any plan.
Once the emails start pinging, and our colleagues start singing, there are often very few moments left to do anything for ourselves.
Those precious moments of slumber before we lose the day to the world are some of the most deceptive.
That’s why they call it a lie-in.
Spread snoring across the linen might feel like winning.
But everybody knows that when you snooze, you lose.
