Well, just like last year, a poor night’s sleep before take-off. For some reason, these early flights always get me. Went to bed at 8.00pm, woke round 12.30am, and tossed and turned till 3.30am, when I gave it away. Maybe a nap on the way to Sydney will leave me reasonably refreshed. I am glad, though, that I’m not heading straight on the the US today. A quiet evening in Sydney should be the ticket.
