Day After The Winter Solstice.
Slept quickly and soundly only to be woken up by the dog about an hour later because he desperately wanted to get on my bed.
Spike does not normally do this even when he has slept here; he never comes and squeaks by my bed, so I was very surprised.
Especially as he had been on Richie’s bed under the duvet, yet he got up and came and stood on his hind legs to squeak at face level.
When I said ‘go away he scuttled off back to Richie, who got up and got me a bag of thc which helped me get back to sleep.
Because of the snow it is very quiet here right now, plus it is getting close to Christmas and a lot of people have taken time off work.
The children played outside over the weekend when the snow was new, but today it was even colder and the snow was getting quite slippery so none was playing outside today.
Did notice that it was dark a minute or two later than yesterday, or maybe that is my wishful thinking.
Maybe it seemed to get dark later because there were no dark clouds came rolling in at 3.30, like they did yesterday.
It was dramatic yesterday how one minute it was bright and sunny until 3 pm, then the clouds rolled in and the sun went off as if by a light switch and it was dark.
Today looked very much like the day after the shortest day and we are going the right way, and soon spring will be here.
Now I have no more complaints about the dark nights now I see that we are moving towards longer days and spring.
Really looking forward to Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
