I managed to fall asleep around 9pm last night, mainly trying to convince myself that I didn’t need to gorge myself with the copious amount of chocolates the hotel left in my room.

The saving grace for my morning was an English breakfast, the most enjoyable part being the fact that it was down the street from work/hotel. Otherwise, it was pretty bland and quite tasteless. I later learned that one should only get an English breakfast if they make everything from scratch and freshly made just for you.
