Success: Melbourne has nearly returned to normal

A half-conscious, half-glanced look through one eye - the other buried in the pillow - at a Twitter post in the wee small hours brought me a sense of relief, saddled with a heap of frustration and jealousy.

The days and the nights often feel like they have significantly more jagged edges than they did this time last year.

For me, that's meant deciding to call it a night at a "reasonable" hour - often early the following day. But it also means a semi-passive glare at my phone to try and empty the last few morsels of consciousness before succumbing to rest and the beginning of yet another day making the short walk from one room to another.
