Stupid body clock

Hmm, fly back from Atlanta leaving at 20:00 EST (15:00 BST), sleep 3 hours on the plane getting back to the UK at 8:30 BST the next morning. Manage to stay awake all day and go to bed at 1:00 BST. Next day Wake up at 10:00 BST, go out, see friends, go to bed at 1:30 BST, can't sleep. Feel very awake but tired.

Get up, watch baseball (Sox stuff Yankees, woot), go back to bed at 5:30 BST. Birds shouting outside, fall asleep at 6:00 BST. Wake up at 10:30 BST, just catching end of Jeremy Kyle. Feel very tired but awake. Plan to stay awake all day.

Stupid body clock.

I'm afraid my tea recommendation is fairly basic. I drink English Breakfast Tea (or equivalent) fairly strong with a dash of milk and a very small amount of sugar (about 1/8th of a teaspoon). It's important to get fresh unsterilised milk. Pasturised is fine but UHT makes the tea taste funny. Non-dairy creamer makes a better cuppa than UHT.

Usually I use Fairtrade tea bags, one per cup but it's hard to get tea bags in the US that have enough flavour.

But I'm wide awake again in the middle of the night. It's now 3am and I'm writing 4e scenarios and playing the same on facebook. I can't drink coffee but maybe I should get some caffeine tablets for the morning, or perhaps take something now, my antihistamines usually lay me low.


P.S. I thought I'd friended you, turned out I'd forgotten to do so, now remedied.

Barrys- If you can find it. Pour boiling water on it. Don't let it stew(brew too much). Drink it black with a little sugar if you want.
