Slept in this morning, due to the alarm not going off. Why didn’t it go off, when I’d set it as usual on going to bed. According to Madame: ‘You were fiddling with it at three in the morning. I asked you what you were doing but you didn’t seem to be awake.’ How can you trust an alarm to wake you up if you can’t trust yourself not to switch it off when you’re asleep?
