Happy new year all.
Once again we are struggling with Yule-lag . It’s like jet lag only caused by the bad time keeping that goes with the festive period. I think I am naturally a ‘night owl’ – inclined to stay up very late and get up late, and it is hard to argue with when it seems to be permanent darkness at this time of year anyway. There just isn’t enough daylight to make up a whole day so why fight it.
Well why is because everyone else lives by different rules. People phone at unreasonable hours (before 9 am!), the postman rings the bell to deliver parcels before we are dressed, and more significantly, the working world has a different body-clock and expects us to fit in. This factor exasperated by the taking of some annual leave to extend the holiday.
Today is epiphany and tomorrow is now named reality-Monday.
