October 30, 2006
Just walked back from the swimming pool and just took in how dark it is now that the clocks have gone back. I’ve got to say I quite like it, feels cosy in a weird way – but then I’m a child of Winter, born a week before Christmas. I understand the arguments to keep on BST throughout Winter, prolonging the sunlight into the evening when people live their lives as opposed to having light in the morning when so many of us merely ‘function’.
Mind you I guess I’m also kinda fine with it as I’m aware I’m spending the first part of my career working shifts and so will always see some sunlight during the working week, that and I’m a big bloke so am confident generally that the scariest thing in the darkness is me.
Thats all I guess, just sticking up for having dark evenings, heck its not like you can’t have fun after sundown anyhow. Besides only 52 days and the evenings start getting shorter again.
Oh yeah and for those that care the swimming went well despite a week off for the Anglesey trip.
