When I'm at home and working, I get by on 6-7 hours' sleep per day, usually a little longer at weekends. I sometimes think that's not quite enough, but overall I feel I cope OK. So why is it that as soon as I go on holiday all I want to do is sleep? Take yesterday for example: I got up just after 9 AM, had a siesta for a couple of hours mid-afternoon, went to bed at 1 AM and woke up at 11 AM this morning - ten whole hours later!
The way this holiday's going I'll have time for nothing else but sleeping, eating and reading books. Somehow it doesn't sound too bad ;-)
