Meantime …

We had a an unseasonal bright, sunny morning at wake-up time today; of course we were all up in the dim one hour before that, infant body clocks being what they are. Mean time also means it’ll be dark in a couple of hours from now and I’ll be returning from work this week at the sensory equivalent of midnight.

Still, Mean Time is better than BS Time which, let’s face it, is only one step away from WTF Time which is probably what we’d have if Brussels got involved.

I do enjoy daylight saving, despite young kids watering down the immediate effect of the shift. Some people got an extra hour’s sleep last night. And it is nice to wake up in the light, even if only for a week.

    Even when you put them to sleep an hour later than normal they wake up at their usual time – why is that, what function do they have that we somehow lose over time? I’m sure it would be useful to have that ability at least once in a while….

    Absolutely. Mine shifted today though – an hour on almost exactly. Very weird.
