Springing forward - -

- - by which I mean the start of British Summer Time - that weekend when we move those clocks forward 1 hour for "daylight saving". Such an absurd expression when you really think about it - where do you put that daylight you just "saved"? And when can you withdraw it from the "savings" account to re use it? Will it generate interest so that I might expect MORE daylight when I withdraw it? Can I keep in my "daylight savings" account indefinitely?? Or must it be used on the very day we "saved" that daylight?? The thought still tickles me - and makes me giggle to myself! Don't you just love the English language!!
Don't get me wrong - - I truly love the lighter evenings! So this week I should use my "daylight saving" to go for a walk or potter in my garden or just watch the sea, shouldn't I? Except that tweaking with the clock means I am more tired when I get home!! I did use the natural light to take a few photos though.This is a mini album I started at our crop's last all day craft day and I am pleased with the way it has turned out.

What do you do with your daylight savings???

thanks for stopping by.

  1. I make things! The old eyes aren't what they used to be, and the extra light in the evenings is very welcome indeed.

  2. I love your min-book - so pretty - I want to reach out and touch it!

  3. I agree it is an odd thing to say. Like Sain, the lighter evenings mean I more inclined to do something rather than veg in front of the TV

  4. Yes I agree, a daft thing to say! I love the lighter evenings, I seem to have more energy. I love how my dog is still in pre 'daylight saving!' she is not bothering me for her 8pm treat until 9pm:)


Hi and welcome - thanks for taking the time to let me know you called.
