The clocks went back last night. Yes, here in the UK we still do that nuts thing called British Summer Time.
Unlike when the clocks change in the Spring and we lose an hours sleep. Last night we gained an hours sleep, but by the end of what will feel like an inordinately long day, that extra hour in bed will be of little benefit.
It has been a glorious Sunday morning here in North Devon. It is one of our children's Birthdays today and after doing breakfast and Thomas opening his presents, we left him intently constructing a Tiger Tank whilst we went outside to take advantage of the fair weather.
I was brushing up, clearing logs in to the store and general tidying up about the place with the rest of the children, whilst husband, David was chainsawing some rather stubborn oak, that is so hard and seasoned that it does not like being split with an axe.
As I passed him with the wheelbarrow, I noticed he had adopted a rather novel manner whilst sawing the wood and jokingly shouted to him, "Is this the old man chainsawing technique?"
If you are of a nervous disposition or a health and safety geek you are best not to look at the photo below.
