Daylight Saving started yesterday morning. I have to admit that I’m not a big fan.
The extra daylight in the evening is a bonus but it’s going to take a while to adjust to the early mornings. I woke up to a fight between my bedside clock and my body clock today. The bedside clock told me it was time to get up. My body clock said, “Don’t be ridiculous, it’s still dark outside”. I lay there for a few more minutes and let them argue between themselves.
The fact that it was a cold start to the day made it even more difficult to throw back the covers this morning. I’m sure my body will work out what’s going on soon.
Sunrise is fairly early at the moment but the main problem for me is that later during the Daylight Saving period sunrise becomes later and later and I have to cycle in the dark if I want to get some extra kilometres in before work. I was too tired to do any extra this morning but I’m hoping I’ll get a few good rides in later this week.
Do you have Daylight Saving across the Summer months? Do you enjoy the extra daylight at the end of the day or does it rob you of your mornings?
We’re just at the start of a three year Daylight Saving trial. Once the trial’s over we get to decide if we want it permanently or not. I have a feeling that the referendum will deliver the same result that two previous Daylight Saving referendums have returned. Thanks but no thanks.
