Next March I’m not giving the hour back without a fight. My body clock does not appreciate this hourly tweek every six months. We gain an hour then we lose an hour then we gain it back…its like yo- yo dieting except its our body clock thats gaining or losing. It will take me at least a week before I feel normal again.
Driving home in the dark is depressing and later on when I go to work in the dark and return in the dark I will want to hibenate like a bear or a tortoise. I will want to go to bed at 8pm and refuse to believe its time to get up at 6.45am when its pitch black. I work in an area which has no windows so some days, unless I go looking for natural daylight at lunchtime, all I will see is the artifical light or natural darkness.
Did I use the extra hour for good use? Yes I had an extra hour in bed, then felt guilty that maybe I should have done something creatively. Next March I wont have to worry about that aspect because the hour will be taken from us. I’ll be wondering where it’s gone and will it be back next October?
