A lot of people hate early sunsets but I quite like them. So long as you’ve got somewhere warm and welcoming to go its quite nice drawing the curtains and settling in for the night. I’m sure that view would not be shared by the homeless or, as we used to call them in the 70s, tramps. Now is the time of year to get out your quilted sleep suit (basically a duvet with arms and legs) or, if you’re over 60 a candlewick bedspread. Each member of the family should have one of these and they should be worn in such a way as only a person’s nose is visible. Huddled together you can enjoy looking like a flock of obese flamingos.
Here in North West UK the sun went down at 3.45pm today and won’t rise tomorrow until about 8.15am. I’d quite like to be allowed to hibernate during the Winter months. A cardboard box full of straw and punched with air holes would do the job; the sort of thing they used to put the tortoises in on Blue Peter. Of course these days the box would have to have WiFi.
