In the mornings and before bed I have book ended a special part of my routine. I unroll a yoga mat, sit cross legged on in and silently blot out all my thoughts.

This week I re read my favourite book of all time. The Beach by Alex Garland. I read it first at a time when it was relevant, it had just came out and I was in university leading an adventurous lifestyle.

It’s all due to the time old affliction every parent (except that one friend from the school yard pick up, we all have one) experiences, good old sleep deprivation.
