The lack of sleep is getting to me…

After Saturday night's surprise visit from the pizza delivery man, I was hoping I'd be tired enough last night to catch up on some sleep. Following an early flight to Barcelona for work, a solid few hours working in my hotel room and a long walk around town, I felt ready for bed. After nipping ...
