Oh no! nothing as dramatic! :-) I sleep very well indeed (eight to nine 
hours on an average night) which, at my age, is rather exceptional. 
However, and I think that many experience the same, I may wake up at

the previous day(s).

Correct, but I am not modelling the Real World, as you probably may have 
noticed by now... :-)
