Day 2: Squats - 90kg x
Day 3: Squats - 120kg x

Would turn into a Medium/Light/Heavy schedule:

Day 1: Squats - 110kg x
Day 2: Squats - 90kg x
Day 3: Squats - 120kg x

With Day 3, of next week being when you would see improvement. Day 1 & 2 are held constant.
Definitely worth considering though Day 1 is usually my heavy day. Today was only supposed to be 3 reps actually, lucky for me lol!
Certainly, doing a

120kg
90kg
110kg schedule may be worth looking at. I usually do my best work on the first session of a week.

Though I think and hope today was just a blip. Been getting used to awesome sessions that a crappy one is almost a shock! In a strange way, I probably needed it. Keeps me focused rather than looking ahead. I will go for PR's on Tuesday and see what my body says.

And thanks for the support lads!

@ Steve: No, but I did get something small. Still, work is an arid desert right now. Just got to ride out the storm.
