Now that winter is officially here with the change of the clocks, how does it feel?
Well, I get a week of feeling good as each morning I get to stay in bed an hour longer – makes all the difference!
But then I pay the longer term price of darker evenings, which are depressing and useless, while the gain of lighter mornings is wasted on me because I feel sh*t when I get up anyway!
So overall I’d keep summer time and have lighter evenings.
I remember when the clocks changed in the factory there were always problems with the night shift. In the autumn they would demand 9 hours pay, and in the spring they would claim victimisation if you tried to only pay them only the 7 hours they had worked – “Its not our fault we’re on the shorter shift” – so we had to pay them for the usual 8. The unions always won.
