According to an app on my phone the quality of my sleep last night was 68%. I don't even know what that means.

Sleep cycle. You switch it on when you're about to go to sleep and lie your phone on the bed and then it tracks your sleep and apparently the alarm goes off when you're in your lightest sleep. So if I want to wake at 630 and it recognises I'm in a light ESP at 6.18 it goes off and then I'm meant to feel better waking more naturally.

Or something.

the other night I ate some cheese and crackers about 10 minutes before I fell asleep and I had the best night's kip I've had in ages

did it again last night, had another night's great kip

experienced mad intense dreams of course but nothing unpleasant

did some boffin say recently that the cheese / mad dreams link is a myth? they're talking out of his or her hole.

no they said that not all cheese will give you mad dreams. some are more likely to than others

i used to work in the polling stations the odd time SB.

very handy money. you get a couple of hundred quid tax-free for sitting in a chair all day and just reading out people's names when they come up to the table.

some stations would be very quiet for long periods too so you could sit and read a book.

would do it over here no bother if i knew how to go about it.
