The end is nigh. The end of Daylight Savings Time that is. When I was younger I could never remember which way to turn the clock until I met a great woman who taught me this little mnemonic "Fall back-spring forward".
This weekend we set our clocks one hour back and gained an extra hour of precious sleep. Simply divine.
Waking up in bright daylight aided me in my daily attempt to haul my tired bones from my snuggly warm bed into the cold of the morning. Thank the heavens for underfloor heating.
Everything just seems so much easier when it is already light out. There's nothing worse than waking up in the dark or what seems like the middle of the night. Something I am not looking forward to over the next months. Mornings are going to be hell. Bumping into furniture on my way to the bathroom as I am trying not to wake the hubby by leaving the lights turned off.
Gone are the long days. Hello long nights. I don't know how they do it in the Scandinavia but I sure as hell would go mad if I'd have to live in the dark.
Is it just me or does anybody else feel drained of every ounce of energy when you're comming home from work and it is dark out? Every little piece of housework seems like a chore. Cooking feels as though you were asked to climb Mt. Everest while it seems like child's play during the summer months. Huh.
If Daylight Savings Time would be up for discussion would you be pro or con? Is there anything you like about the long winter nights?
