Titled Part 2, because
an old closed thread with that title already exists.
Here we are,
Halloween was yesterday,
the presidential national election is day after tomorrow,
and we turned the clocks back one hour today.

Pissing down rain outside, as the French would say,
like a pissing cow. ("une vache qui pisse")

And I have lost the key to my room,
right here in my room,
where I have done everything but strip the bed
to hunt for the misplaced key.

Dis-regulated? Me?

Oh keberoxu, I'm so sorry you lost your key! I'd be very upset if that happened to me, as I hate losing things.
Sometimes nothing seems normal or going along as it should.
Difficult times eh?

Our week of rain finally cleared and I spent the afternoon putting up a chunk of fence. Of course the dogs don't know anything about this Daylight Savings Time business, they still want to be fed at the same time.

So I stripped the linens off the bed, and there was the key --
inside the wooden bed frame, which is too big for the mattress here.
I knew the key wasn't on the floor, because
I had crawled all over the floor to make certain.
The key got tangled up in the blankets or something.

Maybe tomorrow will be a better day,
even if it is still raining.

What bad luck! It's almost as if it burrowed into a place of hiding. Good thing Halloween is over.

I'm glad you found it.

We say "It's raining cats and dogs" here, and at the moment it blooming is.
This autumn has seen the heaviest rainfall ever here in Norfolk.
The river Wensum down by the watermill in our village is nearly bursting its banks. The farmer's fields on either side are underwater, and my neighbour's daughter's sheep are looking sodden and gloomy.
Today it's lashing down again. Very depressing.
I draw the curtains now at 4pm. My sister told me it's now dark at 3pm up in Tayside.
I seem to still be on BST, and can't adjust my routine. Funny how one's body clock keeps ticking away to 'original time'!

The hold doors of a plane carrying Japanese car parts burst open in mid-air. It was raining Datsun cogs...

I get up when I wake in the morning. I go to bed when I'm sleepy. I eat when I'm hungry. As I don't need to go to work and rarely need to catch trains or buses (and bus and train timetables around here are usually the same from one hour to the next, anyway), I don't need to worry about BST or GMT.

I'm the same Jos, but as my husband is still working, I try to adapt so I can be on the same timetable as him. It takes a few weeks, but eventually I'm on course!

It's still unsettling to see the day going dark to evening so much earlier than before.
But if there's a temporary compensation,
it's that my area has unseasonably warm dry pleasant weather just now,
so one can actually do things like eat outside in the fresh air. It will be sweet while it lasts.
