Here in Wales, we’re quite up North- on latitude with Canada. This time of year, that means the days are short (no daylight savings time?!) and dark. It doesn’t get light out till 9 or 10 am, and it begins to get dark at 4:30pm. That was a huge adjustment for me the first month: I’d feel like it was bedtime, and I hadn’t even eaten dinner yet!
The good news is (and I’m really looking forward to this), come spring the days will get longer and it will be light till nearly 11pm. Bring it on!
