But a day spent nursing the flu bug (that has overstayed) has left me feeling glutted with sleep, like I have filled my energy reserves up to the brim and I need to spend some or I will over-heat. It is a vicious cycle – too much sleep, too little sleep, repeat over and over.

If only we follow the instructions.
