So in the end I turned the laptop on and woke myself entirely by surfing the web for fifteen minutes. And, once I'd cleaned out the diseased cobwebs from the corners of my brain, I closed the lid, and my eyes, and fell fast asleep almost instantly.
To be woken at 8-ish by a small boy deciding that "Uther was staring at my door, so he must have wanted to come in and see me." and a five stone alsatian climbing onto my chest to wish me good morning with his tongue.
