It’s that time of year again where every chocoholic is torn between jumping for joy and feeling overwhelmed with temptation for all the chocolate surrounding us. It always seems mightily unfair but also somehow like permission. Either way, I like this time of year – it’s spring, the daffodils are making their annual comeback, and the weather is starting to warm up a bit.
This year, it just so happens that Easter Sunday coincides with the UK’s Daylight Savings Time. I never usually wake up during the night, so it doesn’t often bother me – as someone who regularly wakes up before seven in the morning, I don’t really lose much of my day if I wake up an hour later. This morning was weird, though: I woke up at 4:40 yesterday’s time, having forgotten about the clocks, and found out about it about twenty minutes later when I checked my phone. I only got back to sleep at around half six today’s time and slept for almost another two hours after that. It doesn’t help that the weather in the UK has been seriously weird today! It was super sunny and nice initially, then massive downpours, then super sunny, then massive downpours again… Blooming English weather.
My family and I have never made a big deal out of Easter, but it’s nice as a marker. It’s also great for the bank holidays (though I wish some things would still be open, like shops or the library… I’m just that sad haha) – the time off is definitely appreciated. It’s great this year, because we had a 3.5-day last week as my school finished early on Thursday, and had Friday off. This coming week I have another, as we don’t have Monday and finish early on Friday. It’s brilliant…
(Just don’t mention the mock exam I have on Thursday. Nope. Not ready for it.)
Speaking of though, that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing this weekend – revising and catching up – so I’m sorry it’s not the most exciting blog post. I promise I’ll get another Short Story Sunday up sometime soon, but today was not the day! All my course content should be finished by the end of this coming week, so then it’ll just be revision, which hopefully will leave me feeling a bit better about things. I will definitely get more organised, that’s for sure.
