I always have and I guess I always will. In my younger days, when the fact that it was summer meant unbridled asthma and hay fever, I still felt more than a twinge of regret that the nights would now be drawing in. As I grow older I feel this even more keenly. This week-end is the 'semi-official' end of the lazy summer days, soon it's back-to-school, back to a routine of early waking and darker mornings, yuk-yuk-yukkety-yuk.
On the plus side however (and trust me, there is one
) the clocks don't go back for another two months or so then they go forward within five months so it's not actually that bad. There will be the 'fun' of Hallowe'en, Bonfire Night followed by the twinkle that is Christmas but then, on 22nd December, it all starts to improve. I'll be holding out for that, how about you? DD
