Twitter users have revealed their ‘awfully British bedtime routines’ in a viral thread – from watching Tom Hardy on CBeebies to checking which bins their neighbours have out.
The amusing answers were shared to the social media platform this week, as Britons across the nation shared their similar nighttime practices.
Using the hashtag #awfullybritishbedtimeroutines, one person admitted: ‘Going upstairs… looking forward to the freshly washed bedding you did earlier and realising you’ve not put it back on yet.’
While another said: ‘I let Tom Hardy read me a bedtime story, as a third added: ‘Sneaking up first so you don’t have to switch everything off and let the dog out for a wee.’
