British Summertime!

    Yes folks! It's coming up to British Summertime. A time for lazy picnics out in the fields and frollicks at the beach, warm nights spent drinking outside and moonlight trysts.

    Remember! If you carry out any of the above activities you will be sternly chastised and there is a very real possibility you will be arrested. Do you really want to be tasered and fall onto the cut sandwiches? Must it be that you are handcuffed and taken away leaving the one you love by the factory wall? Will "I'll just finish me pint" really end up with soldiers escorting you to the magistrate?

    Don't forget to put your clocks forward one hour. I've done mine already because I like to be prepared and have a dry run evening to see how the shadows of the house fall on the laurels.

    I had forgotten about the clocks. Thanks Jude.

    One major insight I get from that is that like myself you only ever go to the bother of cutting your sandwiches if you know you're going to be seen eating them.

    I'll have to change my exercise period now to take advantage of the lighter evenings.

    ...and I love the annual thread of amazement and ostentatious massive adjustment to the fact that something which we'll all seen happen at the same time every year for decades is about to happen again.
    This year I've bought a new outfit and shoes especially!

    At the dimming of the day I like to partly close the front room curtains and put the table lamp on to let people know I'm still here. I doubt I'll get much custom though.

    But your work sounds dubious I have to say.

    Look on the plus side - clocks forward one hour means ONE HOUR LESS OF LOCKDOWN!

    Does this mean the bloody cat won't start mithering me for his breakfast until quarter to seven?

    I'm too busy resting on mine.

    An extra hour of daylight during which we can stay indoors!

    One less hour looking at the same four walls!

    Mrs Shedman and I have started going to be at 10.00pm instead of our usual 11.30pm to avoid the news on the telly and the interminable coronavirus coverage followed by the inevitable load of old sh *te they have on afterwards. We now regularly lay in until 9.00am, which is late for us, because there seems little point getting up with nowhere to go. With breakfast at about 10am or later, we don't want any lunch so we're only eating two meals a day and so making what supplies we have in the house last longer and we're saving money. It's still pretty sh *t though.
