I was back to normal today. I had to force my stuck tobacco drawer open to get to my Five Brothers (scrooge hope it's not too late to get back into the club).
I have to ask if you've had Sutliff RR. I bought a pouch of Lane's and it seems to have a problem that tobaccos like Chatham Manor and Sweet Cask have: If you don't have your pipe perfectly ready and puff genteelly, then it tastes like rubber. Not trying to dissuade you, but I am curious is I was the only one who got this.
As to sleeping late, that is another sweet spot of life
