    Pitch dark out there now.

    No more light evenings until April.

    All the more time to watch BTVS and Angel then.

    In other news, them next door have returned.

    Little cat now seems to want to come & live with me.

    Feck me, that walk seems to have tired me out.

      Scavenging for a bag to put some recycling in, I found a one with a receipt from the Sainsbury’s store in Cambridge, dated 27 February 2012. That was a Monday, so I would have popped over there on my way from the Science Park to check in to the Premier Inn

        Thank you for the reminder. I've not changed any clocks since I got home

          And I've just changed one that I'd forgotten about, remembered on the walk, forgotten about again, and remembered just then when prompted.

          It'd be good if I could remember how to set some of the Lidl(tm) self setting clocks to display GMT rather than CET.

            I turned up at a friend's house an hour early this morning because I'd forgotten all about it.

              back in the day <whatever day that was>, people would be camped out in front of pubs for an hour* because of that.



              * opening hours were 12 - 3 Sunday lunchtime, although some landlords would open the back door early, like.
              whoever met a pub landlord who didn't have an eye for quick profit?

                Most of the time around here you could never get a drink on a Sunday.

                I never did figure out the opening hours.

                Not to mention the dry counties where you were fecked from 22:30 on Saturday to 11:00 on Monday.

                  aye, as i grew up* in Scotland only hotels had sunday licenses.
                  there were some strange 'hotels'

                  4 rooms and a bar that can seat 300+, with a stage and a live music license!

                  happy days

                    I once turned up at PC World an hour early because I'd forgotten

                    Still haven't done my clocks. At this rate I'll be at work at 5am tomorrow

                      Fair few fireworks going off outside. I presume this is to do with the ongoing Diwali celebrations

                      They’ve had to cancel the funfair across the city in the Hindu area, as the rec is too soggy after the rain

                      The main event is going on on the main road over there instead, where the Diwali lights that were turned on a couple of weeks ago are. In a few weeks said lights will be repurposed for Christmas, having possibly been used for some other event relating to a further religion in the meantime. In fact, there must be lights up in one part of the city or the other half-a-dozen times during the course of the year
