I hate daylight savings

I'm very grouchy this morning. This is what happens when you wake up at 6.30am instead of 7.30am and then can't get back to sleep because it is way too light outside. I usually leave at around 8am and it's usually slowly getting light. But no this morning it was midday type brightness. Hence I am very, very, very, very, very grouchy. The lights are not getting turned on in my office - it's far too bright.

So Round the Bays... I came, I saw, I ran (most of the time) and was done within an hour. That was the goal. Not bad for a first-timer and considering I don't usually run such distances.

I've just started reading King Lear in French. Should keep me occupied for awhile. Getting it into English is generally the easier part. Understanding the English... Let's just say it's been awhile since Bursary English and my Shakespeare skills aren't what they used to be :P

I love it - it's soo much easier to get up in the morning.

I do not like getting up at 7.30am to that level of brightness. It's screaming you should be awake and lively which pisses me off.

It was so much nicer having the sun just starting to come up at 7.30am and it would gradually get lighter and I could therefore gradually wake up
