Eily’s Report – 27th October


Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

This past week took us into another lockdown and on Saturday night our clocks went back one hour. In each case leading into no small number of changes that we will have to make. Neither of the two changes were very welcome, but as there is no way around them we may as well start by finding how we are going to plan our way forward. The first shock is always the worst, be when we give it time for the dust to settle then we can come up with plans. The first long evening is always terrible. The mind races to find some way of whiling away those long hours of darkness. Some people I know have resolved to get up an hour earlier in the morning and put in the hours so that by the time evening comes they are satisfied to call it a day, anytime from five o’clock on. Rising early of course is a wonderful thing regardless of any time change. Early risers have told us, over and over that we are missing the best part of the day and I couldn’t agree more. The world is a different place at the tail end of the night. It is then that all nocturnal creatures are retiring to their nests and burrows. You’d be forgiven for thinking that we haven’t much wildlife in our district but because they are night-time creatures we don’t see them.  We occupy the land at different times. The badger, the hedge hog, hares, foxes, rats, mice,minks, bats, they are all here but politely give us our shift without interruption until we retire.  So maybe our early morning people have the right idea and have the pleasure of  seeing little animals popping into their warm places of rest while we take over for the  day.
