I do like walking in the darkness sometimes - I can't explain it but I find it quite soothing.
I don’t like going to work and coming home in the dark but I quite like settling down to cosy evenings indoors. Much as I love my garden, it’s good to have a rest from it for a few months. It will be better in the mornings next week.
Yes, I remember how difficult it was with young children when the clocks changed.
Life is so hard when you're retired (she says with no sympathy whatsoever!)
Can't be that dark "down south"!
I feel I've been having the misery of winter for 2 months already. I'm looking forward to getting an extra hour of daylight in the morn, as I've been struggling to get out of bed recently, what with the murk, gloom, mist, dreich sheet, gloaming etc. The clock change will provide a small window of reprieve, from what has been a hard slog already. Phew! It's not even November yet. Groooooaaaaaannnnnnnnn!
I'm already being woken at 5.30.
4.30 will be CRIMINAL.
Even more so when we take into account Halloween will soon be upon us. I can put up to a certain extent to being bewitched, but it's beyond me me why I shall need to be bothered and bewildered by why kids are allowed to set the dog off barking its bleedin' head off and their parents expect me to be kind to them when they do.
I like Halloween actually
I like Bonfire Night too
Hate Christmas....Bah Humbug
I hate all of them.
You'd change your mind about that if you came trick or treating at my front door.
Especially when you're still working
I have lots of sweeties ready this year for the little ghosties and ghoulies
We've only recently got parents with children back here so rest assured that trickers will be treated. Generously.
Did you kill all the others then Calp.
The only bird I've ever knowingly run over was a pheasant, it hid at the side of the deserted road in the long grass until I was right on top of it and stepped out under my wheels before I could react.
We get them in the garden sometimes in the winter, they come in at a point where the hedge is low and then walk slowly around the circumference 3 or 4 times until they find the low part again.
I also hate it when the clocks go back, we should keep things the way they are now all year round.
