, Let there be light!Crikey, I know this feeling (and that dance of the light) so well. I think my aegvare is four hours, too (probably less) e2€“c2a0rrespective of being able to lie-in the next morning. Aging and sound sleep just doesn't seem to want to marry and live happily ever after for me.I remember being so tired once, in Nicaragua, standing up on a bus for hours, trekking through god-knows-where, that I fell asleep standing up and it was only the sudden terrifying drop of my body that thrust me back to consciousness and prevented what could have been a very embarrassing collapse. The odd thing nowadays is, no matter how knackered I am once my head hits the pillow the idea of sleep seems miraculously to disappear. In other words, you have my sympathy. Thank you and good night.
