That describes me, exactly! I'm happy to be self-employed so I can set my own hours, I never make appointments before noon if I can help it.
From very shortly after they brought me home from the hospital, I took a long time to fall asleep but once asleep slept through the night. As I've gotten older, I've figured out that my body clock just wants me up at night and asleep until mid-day, and that if I go to sleep very very late, I fall asleep relatively quickly (for me anyway) and am generally much happier. Doesn't seem at all connected to celiac, given that the basic pattern was set before I was on any solid foods at all and hasn't changed since I went gluten-free.
Interestingly, whenever I get a really good stretch of time without glutenings, meaning I'm feeling my healthiest and best, I only need six-seven hours of sleep, I sleep like a log (not a baby!) and wake up without an alarm clock at an hour that surprises me!
