Since becoming pregnant Edwina Bartholomew’s bosses at Channel 7 have given her a sleep-in, but that doesn’t stop people being fascinated by the early hours she keeps.
The 36-year-old used to set her alarm anywhere between 2:45 and 3:30am, but now it’s a leisurely 4:30am.
“It sounds silly but that extra hour – anything out of the twos and threes makes a big difference. So I feel really different and good by comparison,” she told Mamamia.
Despite working early mornings for 15 years, Edwina has never quite got a handle on the whole “prep before bed” idea.
Breakfast is squeezed in-between moments she’s on screen. Post continues after video.
“Every morning it’s a scramble. I don’t know why,” she laughed.
She’s also a snoozer. In fact she factors a 10 minute snooze into her morning routine.
“Only one though, anymore than that and I am capable of falling straight back into a deep sleep. So I can’t press snooze more than once,” she said.
