It’s that time of year when I have to steel myself for the loss of an hour’s sleep.
It doesn’t help that the loss of the hour comes several weeks too early meaning less light in the morning when I prefer it while it’s still neither light nor warm enough for late enough on the evening to compensate.
I was preparing to mutter,mumble grump and grumble about it when I cam across some tips and thoughts on daylight saving which made me smile instead:
1. get some sleep – we lose an hour and it is a jolly long time until we get that hour back!
2. make the most of early morning walks – for a time you lose the early light – it just disappears overnight!
3. forget the idea that you are really saving daylight – it is a myth. I have been researching this and it is a fact that there is not an extra hour of daylight at all – they just adjust the clocks to make it seem as if you have extra daylight! Honest! Well, I think I am being honest… maybe I am wrong…
4. for if you were saving it, where would you store it? . . .
