My job, which consists mostly of nightshifts, with several days off in between has a similar effect to jetlag. Ive tried all sorts, but have settled on just going to sleep when Im tired, whatever time of day that happens to be.  ;)
This...

Finished work on Friday morning, slept till 7pm, awake til 5 am, dragged up at 11am, slept all afternoon, awake till 3am, up at 12 for breakfast and back to bed. Up just now to take the dog out...

Likely back to sleep about 2, then back at work tomorrow evening  :D
Aye, understood, but given my normal sleep issues, need to get back to normality before I go back to work.

Was in bed and asleep by 9 last night, and awake and up by 10 this morning.  That should do it :).  Fingers crossed....

Stripped the plenum and intake off of kitty to replace a breather elbow that was leaking and causing the EML to come on randomly.  Changed the coils and plugs while I was at it and had the dreaded coolant hose plastics break on me too so there was another 120 quid in parts.  Swapped out the stabilisor rods and drop links too as they were shot.

Anyone would think an MOT is on the horizon ::)

Looks like I has shagged it  :'(
