30th October

I'm confused. Yesterday at 6 pm it was just getting dark. So dusk = 6ish.
last night the clocks went back an hour. 6pm becomes 5 pm.
So it now gets dark at 5 p.m. not 6 p.m.
So how come it was getting dark at 2.30?

I don't know, a weird day all round, which seems to have lasted forever - this morning seems years away! The sky was a slate grey - quite high - with puffy grey clouds wandering about beneath. anot the usual dark gloom of rainy days - just dusk-dark.

I can only conclude that someone forgot to change the Great Clock In The Sky .
The chickens weren't too amused at being shut away earlier than usual - but we've had foxes on the prowl. Can't take chances.
