I didn’t get up until 8:30 this morning. I thought it was much earlier, as it was still dark.
When I went into the kitchen to let Ollie out, I had to switch on the lights. Then I went into the living room and opened the curtains, only to discover that it was as dark as early evening outside. I checked the clock on the microwave as my kettle boiled for coffee. Definitely morning.
Once the computer had fired up, the clock at the bottom of the screen confirmed it was really almost 9 am, not pm.
It is now 11:48, and still more or less dark. It will officially be dark just after 4 pm today.
But I will hardly notice any difference.
On the plus side, it isn’t raining!
